Letting go of a very cool and rare pair of vintage pres. The RCA BA-71 is partially germanium and they boast nice big transformers as well. These are right up in there with Neve's in my opinion and better on some applications. I especially like them on overheads and guitars but I've used them on everything and always been happy. I find them pretty universal.
The package says BA-71a but these are 71c's I believe. I prefer the B and C to the A. They are beautifully packaged with an external power supply, 20dB pads, 48V phantom, and phase reverse. These are fixed gain preamps, meaning they're either around 42dB (or 22db with the pad engaged).
