Sometimes, simple quality is the name of the game. The MP-2A is an all-tube, dual-channel mic preamp, modeled after the A-Designs' successful MP-2 and given added features.In 2006, the A-Designs' created their first Mic Preamp, the MP-2. It was all-tube and designed for smaller budgets, but despite its low price, it became a favorite of many major engineers. It was clean, yet still had the the warmth and richness of a fine, boutique tube pre, reminiscent of older tube guitar amps.
Bass Guitar, Sax & Flute, Drum Overheads and vocals have been favorite applications for the MP-2.
The new "A" series has many new features added, including a -20dB Pad Switch and selectable tone switches, allowing up to four different tones per channel. The new output gain of the MP1-A and MP-2A Series' has also gone from 46dB to 60dB, which is a perfect range for today's Ribbon Mics.
Utilizing world class input transformers by CineMag and custom designed output transformers for the lowest noise level and highest quality sound, the MP-2A brings the warmth and richness of analog to your recordings while maintaining a crystal clear spectrum of sound. The MP-2 is a professional class preamp for use on a variety of sources, and includes rear panel instrument and front panel line level inputs.
It delivers warmth, transparency, and a quality sound with a clean and airy high end like only a high quality all-tube pre-amp can.
