The VT-73 is a 500 Series Vacuum Tube/Solid State Hybrid Mic Preamp. A very versatile preamp that can give you a clean, pure sound, to a fully harmonics-saturated signal for that rich and thick sound when you need it -- and fully adjustable for anything in-between!

This is the mic preamp for you if you're curious and interested in what vacuum tube's non-linear distortion can do to your sound recordings! Treat your ears to the richness of 2nd and even harmonics.

An API Rack/Lunchbox or compatible rack is required to supply power and the necessary XLR input and output connections to the VT-3 Mic Preamp module.
