The world’s favourite mic pre/EQ, hand-wired in England.
Launched in 1970, the Neve 1073 soon became the first choice mic preamp for leading producers and artists and is still today many's "Desert Island" preamp. Found on some of the most famous recordings of the past 40 years, the warm punchy sound of the 1073 complements any musical genre – from rock to rap to classical.
Handcrafted and completely hand-wired in Burnley,England, the modern-day 1073 is produced to the exact specifications of the original, including sourcing exact matches to the original components to ensure the sound remains true to the original.
The Class A design Neve 1073 Classic microphone preamplifier has 3-band EQ (fixed HF plus two switchable bands with cut/boost capability) and a high pass filter. The Neve 1073 mic pre and EQ combination adds warmth and depth to recordings, bringing out subtle ambience, maintaining spatial positioning, and capturing a wonderfully precise image – embodying, think many engineers and producers, the essence of the Neve sound.
The 1073 can be purchased as single or multiple units. Each 1073 module has been designed to retrofit into the 80 Series Neve Classic consoles as part of a channel strip or can be mounted in a custom rack. The available rack sizes are 3U (two modules horizontally) or 5U (eight modules vertically).
