Dual99v500 Mic Pre

Product Information

  • Dual99v500 mic pre uses 2 of our discrete 99v opamps (New +/-16v version) as a 2 stage gain path to provide 75dB of gain with ease. It is aimed at getting big but realistic vocals and acoustic instruments. With the impedance control 200 to 3k it goes from dark and slow to airy and fast tone wise. A centre detent at Z is the best starting point.

Sound Samples I am not a big fan of samples because if you didn't hear the original instruments sound in the studio with your own ears then really you don't have a true point of reference to gauge the samples against. These samples are more to show the difference between the Dual99v500 and TG500.

All instruments recorded by Matt Redlich with no EQ or compression. Pres had Impedance left centred in the Z detent and no HPF. Pres were used in there cleanest mode with output trim not pulled to allow for gain overdrive.

Drums - Colin O'Reilly. Acoustic Guitar - Ben Stewart. Electric Guitar - Greg Cathcart.

Drum kit -> Pearl Masters Mahogany Classic 4 piece kit with Zildjian New Beat hats and a Zanki ride with mostly Remo single ply heads.

Dual99v500 Great
"Hi Joe The 99V arrived very quickly by the couriers. I only had a chance to try it out the other day...only for a short time. Anyway its F$$$#@@!g GREAT!!! has a nice solid low end kinda punch...(especially on vocals) and sits very nicely in the mix. Anyway I will eventually send you a recording...and I want to get a PEQ 500 as well...soon, and a TG 500 later on. Cheers Harvey Mann"

Dual99v500 WOW
"Wow, That is the best descriptive I have for both the Dual99v500 and NV500 Pre's.....totally different sounding and both sound fantastic and from my brief time with them, I can nurse quite a few textures out of them. I have three more slots in this rack, and I think you will be getting another email from me when the next jobs check clears.....Yeaaaaaah, thank you for an excellent product..
