Description

This preamp is feature packed at an amazing price point!

Robustly engineered for predictable, controllable performance, the JoeMeek PreQ-500 is a world-class preamplifier, using a top-quality Cinemag microphone transformer and low noise Burr-Brown audiophile amplifers in its signal path.

All of the standard bells & whistles are included, including 48V Phantom Power, 25dB pad, and phase reverse switches. An 8-LED Peak Program Meter helps users accurately and visually measure signal level.

Below the main section is the de-esser and hi-pass filter controls. The classic optical de-esser reduces unwanted sibilance and features an engage switch, LED peak reduction indicator, and a 2-way frequency threshhold switch. The handy hi-pass filter helps remove low frequency information, rumble, and handling noise and has a wide range of reduction between 25Hz and 200 Hz.

A high impedance instrument input finishes things off on the front panel for getting that classic JoeMeek sound on DI guitars and basses!
