DW Fearn VT-24 Microphone Preamplifier

The DW Fearn VT-24 Microphone Preamplifier is 4-Channels of the VT-1 / VT-2 preamplifier, featuring exactly the same footprint and specifications as the VT-2, only with 4-channels instead of 2. If you need many channels of excellent tube/valve preamplification, the VT-24 is your destination preamp.

Like most of our products, the VT-24 came about because it was something Doug Fearn needed for his own recording projects. He wanted to record every microphone with VT-1 / VT-2 mic preamps, but he was running out of rack space in his small control room. A four-channel version of the VT-2 would double his preamp capacity in the same space.

Doug did not want to compromise on the sound nor on the features of the VT-2. DW Fearn VT-24 Microphone Preamplifier uses the identical circuit and custom Jensen input and output transformers as all their mic preamps. It has four true VU meters, but they are smaller than on a VT-1 / VT-2. Specs are the same as a VT-2, and, most importantly, the sound is exactly the same.

DW Fearn VT-24 Microphone Preamplifier has eight tubes, but it runs cool enough that no fan is required, so you can have it next to live mics without a problem.

One thing that they did have to eliminate in DW Fearn VT-24 Microphone Preamplifier is the meter switch. But the 48V phantom power, 20dB pad, and special input selection for Low-Z microphones are just like on a VT-1 / VT-2. The power switch is on the front panel.
