|Product Experience||I own it||Closest Store||Toronto Ontario|
|I got a Good harmonic distortion from it, cheep too, couldn't believe this pre cost so little, I got a great river 73pre and it took a while to differ the two, sounded very close.|

|Great Little Preamp|
|Product Experience||I own it||Closest Store||Edmonton South Alberta|
|I use this Preamp in my Home Studio alongside a Focusrite ISA One, and 2 UA 710s... Most people have a hard time telling the difference between them. You can tell the difference if you have a good ear. The 710's are $830 each, The ISA One $550, and the Pre 73 $350... you do the math! I've had good results with Mics from an SM57 to an SM7B to a C414XLii to a TLM 103... all work quite well with this unit. Great Buy!|

|This unit is Smokin! Literally... :(|

|Great sounding unit, when it's not on fire. I bought this Pre-73 MK2 at the Vancouver store, had it running for 10 minutes feeding a CAD M179, I go to change a setting and to my horror, smoke is bellowing out of every hole! Of course I unhook it and rush outside to let it air out, all while thinking - this must be how they get that sound!
Anyway, I'm going to return it and try to avoid GA-Projects from now on.
Given my experience with this unit I DO NOT RECOMMEND it, well, only if you want you insurance premiums to go up.
I understand if many people have had good results, but IMHO if quality control is that weak where they ship units that catch fire within minutes, it's not worth the risk.|
