X72 Mic Preamp
The X72 sound is BIG, PUNCHY, and HUGE. It adds a deep, nice, WARM coloration to the overall sound. Really deep-sounding huge. And low frequencies come out punchy and TIGHT. An ultra-low distortion, low noise, operational amplifier optimized for high performance audio is used in the circuitry. Imported Carnhill/UK Input & Output Transformers are used to interface with the outside world. You can also outfit the X72 Mic Preamp with optional Discrete 2520/990 type op amp*, and Millmax sockets.

This project, as everything I've done with the X-72 mic pre has been easy and allowed me to use it on what ever i choose with great results. I mostly do projects for National Geographic using stringed instruments including guitars, acoustic and electric and both as you heard come through with the clarity I need. I used a U87 for the acoustics though the X-72 and a 57 mic a PRS Super Dallas Amplifier and a PRS McCarty for the electrics. The bass was run through a direct box straight into the X-72 with excellent results.
