The mic pre you’ve been dreaming about, at a price you never imagined possible.
The ’73 Jr is a chip off the old block, raised on Carnhill transformers and hand wired with care, it delivers the same massive tone as the 1073-500, in single 500 series space.
Following his successful big brother, the 1073/500, the new ´73JR is a mic preamp with some added features that will cover all the recording needs for engineers and musicians that don´t find the need to track with eq.
Employing only discrete circuitry and conventional components, the ’73 junior is a faithful 3 stage all class A 1073 preamp. Styroflex and tantalum capacitors have been used throughout. No corners were cut.
A useful all discrete class A hi pass filter has been added, essential for recording everything!
The Line mode allows for reamping of prerecorded tracks and it´s perfect for adding some class A color to lifeless recordings.
The smart switched DI (automatically switches from MIC to DI mode when inserting a MONO ¼” jack ) is an all discrete class A JFET circuit ahead of the MIC transformer, so all the juice is there.
Finally, special care has been taken with power handling, implementing internal +24v slow turn on regulation (about 20 sec to reach full voltage ).This makes your lunchbox PSU healthier and makes the 73JR independent of the rest of the slots.
