Manufacturer's Description from Golden Age

Pre73 Jr MKII builds on the Pre73 Jr. legacy by adding a selectable 6 dB/octave two-frequency high pass filter (40 Hz and 170 Hz) and a selectable high-frequency air boost of 3 or 6 dB @ 30 kHz. 

Pre73 Jr MKII's Output level control makes it possible to make fine gain adjustments, or overload the main gain stage for more character without sending too hot of a signal from the output stage. Its combo XLR/TRS input jack and separate output XLR and TRS jacks allow for flexible connections, and there's also an Insert jack for using EQs and other outboard units. 


The Golden Age Project PRE-73 Jr is the little brother to our big seller, the PRE-73. It uses the same discrete (no IC´s) signal path with a transformer balanced in- and output. 

In order to be able to offer this classic and musical sound character at an even more affordable price point, we did scale down on some features that is seldom used.

All the things needed for making great sounding recordings are there and the smaller format makes it possible to mount four units in our 19-inch rack kit, the UNITE MKII.


  • 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 EQs and other units.
  • The circuit board is prepared for the Carnhill input transformer.
  • 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 kit, the UNITE MKII.
