Introducing the brand new Maag Audio PREQ2 500-Series Preamp! The PREQ2-500 is a microphone preamp that's essentially, a powerful little 500-Series brother to the popular Maag Audio PREQ2. It features 71dB of gain, distributed between a Class A discrete transistor preamp along with a sizable nickel-core Input Transformer. It has ¼-inch TS Jacks on the front of the unit for high impedance (1 Mega-Ohm) Instrument Input, accompanied by a ¼-Inch Output Thru Jack. This jack simultaneously provides an isolated, buffered output – a duplicate of the Instrument Input signal at unity gain. The thru jack’s output signal is active not only for running long leads to instrument amplifiers or stomp pedals, but also when using the mic input. In this case, the mic input is amplified by +10dB, offering an unbalanced tip/sleeve signal at the mic thru jack. This signal enables creative experimentation with stomp pedals, amplifier cabinets, or Leslie speaker cabinets for dynamic live tracking. The PREQ2-500 has a 70Hz High Pass Filter, +25dBU of headroom, an EIN noise level of -128dB, and the acclaimed AIR BAND with 9dB of boost at 2.5, 5, 10, 20 and 40KHz.
