The Daking Mic Pre One is a single channel microphone preamp that offers the same great performance and sound as the larger rack mount Daking preamps. Initially conceived for the home studio user, it has become a favorite among professionals that simply need an additional great sounding preamp while doing remote recordings. The Daking Mic Pre One offers a full range sound that is natural and detailed, yet very musical. I many tests we have done, we have found that the Mic Pre One is calibrated as such that it tends to have a output that is around 6dB lower than similar preamps, making the Daking perfect for louder sound sources - such as guitar cabs, drums, and louder vocalists.
The Daking Mic Pre One, sharing the gain structure and Class A, fully discrete transistor circuitry design of the popular Daking Mic Pre IV, additionally features a unique variable high-pass filter and ships in a freestanding 'DI-style' steel enclosure, ensuring both strength and noise immunity.
Essentially a single channel of the Mic Pre IV, the Mic Pre One features switchable phase, 20dB mic input pad and +48V phantom power, plus a selectable 1/4-inch line/hi-z instrument input, all utilizing relays with gold bi-furcated contacts. Two large knurled aluminum knobs control the variable high-pass filter (0-200Hz) and continuously variable input gain, which is complemented by a full-width, twenty-segment bi-color LED meter. The rear of the unit offers a Jensen transformer-isolated mic input and fully-balanced XLR output, plus a 1/4-inch line output. A fourth connector introduces DC power from the external power supply to the unit.
