Shadow Hills Industries Quad GAMA w/ Iron Mod – No Longer Available

Four-channel microphone preamp - requires Shadow Hills PSU (not included)
MFR# Quad GAMA Iron

Product Description

The Shadow Hills Quad GAMA is a four channel version of the Gama, with all the capabilities, features, and quality of the original.

The Gama Is centered around our custom discrete op-amp. This no-compromise design exudes hugeness, fidelity, punchy-ness and depth, across the full frequency range, without becoming veiled or choked, the way non-discrete varieties can.

The preamplifier input is transformer balanced and utilizes an original Jensen input transformer. We couldn't decide which vintage output transformer we liked best, so we had our favorites perfectly recreated, and included them all. You can change output transformers with the flick of a switch, thus changing the tonal capabilities to compliment to whatever material you are recording. This allows you to audition different settings to find the perfect match for microphone or direct input without patching and un-patching other preamps, and possibly alleviating the need for EQ. Choose between Nickel, Discrete, or Steel settings, or upgrade the Discrete to Iron. Each transformer position is stellar unto itself, but the capability of switching between them is like having three great pre's in one.

The microphone gain is controlled by discrete attenuators made from custom twenty-four position Elma switches. This means that all of the channels are perfectly matched to each other and will never wear out like a pot can. Unlike other boutique companies that offer expensive stepped, or mastering options, but limit you to twelve positions, or use stepped pots that can fail over time, ours have twice the resolution and are included in the price.

All the standard Mic-pre features are present: phantom power, phase reverse, a twenty dB pad, and direct input. We have also included the ability to pad and reverse the phase of the Direct Input. The separate power supply is very robust and can power two units.

Quality is also unmatched. Twelve gauge steel chassis, engraved front panels, large custom knobs, and personalized engraved serial number plates, set the build apart. The design aesthetic is reminiscent of 1930's futuristic military technology, that has only now been realized.

Features:
  • Superb sound quality and character
  • Switchable output transformers
  • Detented switches
  • Phase reversible and pad-able DI
  • Engraved front panels

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
