Product Information

BA500 mic pre kit comes complete with every part down to the last nut and bolt. You only need to pick the options for Input and output transformers, Opamp and DI input when ordering.

BA500 mic pre kit uses 1 of our discrete 99v opamps (New +/-16v version) to provide 60dB of gain. It is aimed at getting big but realistic vocals and acoustic instruments like our Dual99v500 but BA500 can only do 60dB of gain. 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. Also has large fully buffered white LED backlit 34mm VU meter showing output level.

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.

Excellent

An excellent kit! The modular design of the circuit boards, connected via a ribbon cable, makes them easy to work on. With quick support from Joe and even with my limited experience I managed to build two, averaging about 4 hours per kit. I've used them for tom close mics, as electric guitar room mics and as bass DI. Big and clear, great low end on the toms. Cheers!
