BAE

Description

BAE Audio is known for manufacturing high-end microphone preamps and EQs that are faithful to original vintage designs from the 70s and earlier. BAE prides itself on using high-end transformers for their products, and everything is kept as close to the vintage philosophy as possible. Not only does BAE choose the highest quality components, they also insist that everything is hand-wired/soldered using discreet electronics and not economized on a circuit board.

The 1073 MP is BAE's version of the legendary Neve 1073 equalizer with the same well-known characteristic Class A sound with its harmonically rich low end, slight resonant highs, and maintained focused mids. Thanks to the transformer-coupled input with its two selectable impedances, the 1073MP works exceptionally well with a wide variety of microphones. There is also a line input feature for adding depth to 2-bus mixes and a DI input for all passive and active instruments. As a colored and versatile mic-pre, the 1073MP maintains its sonic signature across a wide bandwidth.
