Class-A meets Tube
The GoldMike Mk2 is a hybrid preamplifier consisting of a discrete transistor stage and tube stage. The hybrid design of the preamplifier combines the advantages of semiconductors (high dynamics with low distortion, low noise) with the musical qualities of tube sound (pleasant high/overtone spectrum, beautiful three-dimensionality).
The microphone class A transistor preamplifier is discretely constructed from 16 individual transistors.
The preamplifier features 48 V phantom power, polarity inversion, padding and a Butterworth Hi Pass filter.
