Manufacturer's Description from Golden Age

The PRE-73 Jr PREMIER is a one-channel vintage style microphone- and instrument preamplifier in a small footprint allowing 4 units to be racked in a single rack space using the UnitePremier rack kit.

The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The in-and output is transformer balanced, using two different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose. This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available.


Bullet Points

  • Vintage Style class
  • A electronics. No integrated circuits in the signal path. No surface mount components.
  • GAIN switch range 20 - 70 dB.
  • Selectable two position high frequency AIR boost eq, 3 or 6 dB @ 30 kHz.
  • Selectable 6 dB/octave two frequency high pass filter at around 40 (HP1) and 170 Hz (HP2).
  • Switchable phantom power and absolute phase.
  • A high-impedance instrument input for any sound module, electric guitar or bass.
  • A simple signal LED indicator.
  • The output level control makes it possible to do fine gain adjustments and also to overload the main gain stage for more character and then lower the signal to a suitable level before the output stage.
  • Combo XLR/TRS input jack and separate output XLR and TRS jacks for flexible connections.
  • Insert jack for inserting EQ ́s and other units.
  • UK-made Carnhill input and output transformers, tantalum and plustyrene capacitors and mostly soldered internal connections.
  • External power supply to avoid interaction with the audio circuits and transformers.
  • The small format makes it possible to mount 4 units in our 19-inch rack kits.
  • A solid build quality that will last many years of normal use.
