A Designs EM Silver 500-Series Preamp Module

The A Designs EM Silver 500-Series Preamp Module features a custom-wound steel output transformer which gives you a slightly darker sound than the other preamps in the line, adding a distinctive tonal flavor that's useful in any mix.

The A Designs EM Silver 500-Series Preamp Module has a darker tone than the A Designs P1, A Designs EM Red, and A Designs EM Blue. The A Designs EM Silver's sound is based on a custom-wound steel output transformer, which makes it an excellent match for ribbon microphones since steel transformers were widely used in the early days of recording and broadcast - it was the combination of steel transformer and ribbon mic that gave broadcasters and singers that “Voice of God” sound that has lit up so many vocal recording and the amplified spoken word for decades.

The A Designs EM Silver features a 20dB pad, phase switch, 48V phantom power, aluminum gain knob, and thumb screws for easy install and un-install.

Part of a colorful line

The A Designs "EM Series" is a twist on their popular Pacifica based P1 Module. Each color (Silver, Blue, Red, and Gold) has its own sound, which is accomplished by using different custom wound output and input transformers. This gives you a large palette of preamp "coloration" to add to the sound of your favorite microphones or instruments.

A good partner for ribbon mics

The A Designs EM-Silver is a good match for ribbon microphones, partly due to the fact that steel transformers were widely used in the early days of recording and broadcast along with ribbon microphones.

DI input

Another feature of the A Designs EM Silver is a "DI" (direct inject) for use with electric instruments, making it a great pre for bass guitar and keyboards. The A Designs EM Silver is also useful for kick drum miking applications.
