Neve 1073LB (Demo Deal): 100% discrete 500 Series mic pre. Dropped on the studio world in 1970, Neve's 1073 Audio Preamplifier immediately made its bones on the recording studio scene. Renown for its ability to capture, compliment and create a uniquely great sound no matter the source, the 1073 has been the go-to recording preamp of leading artists and producers from hit recordings too numerous to mention.
If you think of any famous recording of the past 40 years, chances are more than good that the artists' voices, instruments or illegal activities first saw tape through a Neve 1073. And now it is available for your LunchboxT Today's 1073LB is still manufactured in Great Britain to the exacting specs of Neve's classic 1073 preamp. Featuring painstakingly recreated original spec hand-wound input and output transformers, matched components, as well as specially recreated tantalum coupling caps, the 1073LB bathes your ears in vintage Neve glory.With a build quality the British Admiralty would approve, the 1073LB's massive input level switch contacts are gold-plated to withstand decades of marathon tracking sessions. As magical as owning a rare piece of vintage kit can appear, the lack of modern conveniences can ultimately detract from the recording experience. That's why the boffins at Neve gave the 1073LB switchable microphone input impedance, signal presence LED and intelligent protected switching on the front combi-XLR input connector so you don't accidentally fry a line-level device with 48v. The new Fine Trim control lets you squeeze the maximum level of sparkling clean signals or crank the gain for some Revolution distortion. The 1073LB Preamp's smart Audio Processing Input design and Lunchbox Insert architecture allows you to create a classic Neve 1073 channel strip when used with a Neve 1073LB Series EQ. And all this sonic potential installs in an empty slot of your compatible LunchboxT rack, ready to inject your microphone or line level signals into that legendary universe of Neve sound.
