Product Description

Details

Planned and manufactured in England the modern-day Neve 1073N is built to the exact specifications of the innovative original – directly matching components to ensure the sound remains genuine and exact. 

The aggressive and impactful audio of the Neve 1073N fits into any genre superbly - its beautiful sound with the timeless Neve signature makes it the preeminent mic pre for recording all kinds of guitars, vocals and acoustic instruments.

The top-of-the-range Class A design 1073N microphone preamplifier has 3-band EQ (fixed HF plus two switchable bands with cut/boost capability) and a high pass filter. Warmth and depth is added to recordings by the Neve 1073N’s mic pre and EQ combination, while magnifying subtleties in the ambience, maintaining spatial positioning and capturing a more accurate image – personifying the essence of the Neve sound in the eyes of many engineers and producers.

The magic is in the detail of the Neve 1073N, down to its transformers which are hand-wound. It can be used as a standalone module or inserted into a compatible rack or console and provides the legendary Neve sound exactly as it was intended.
