Incredible channel strip

By Thomas on April 19, 2021

This is an excellent tube front-end for my project/writing studio. I DI guitars through this, and holy moly, how clear a difference it makes!

By Sean O on December 9, 2020

Love this thing. My absolute favorite channel strip.

By Malcolm F on February 7, 2019

I love this preamp so much that I’m thinking of getting a second one. It’s my go to for vocals!

By Jeffrey P on February 6, 2019

My favorite preamp ever. Foolproof operation and great features! Variable impedance, a mute switch, various pad settings, metering that covers all the bases.

Oh yeah it sounds incredible! Pre, Eq and Limiter.

The price makes it a steal

By Howard B on December 31, 2018

I bought this and had the chance to use it along side of the 6176 as well as LA 610. It really has a sound all its own. At one point we put directly on an electric guitar running direct with no amp. After roughly 20 seconds of playing, the musician looked at me and said, i have been looking for this sound for 30 years. This it what makes it so enjoyable to use this gear live in the studio. I would recommend this gear to all of you out there.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
