SC-1 Mic Preamp
( 5 Articles )
The SC-1 Mic Preamp is a clean, "fast", clear, low-noise, high-gain preamp. It's sound is very transparent, offering a flat response, smooth highs and well-defined mids. You also have the option of installing a Cinemag Input Transformer to give the low-end a little more weight. But even without the trafos, the SC-1 preamp is a great, high-quality preamp that delivers great sound and value.If you want a good sounding preamp with little risk or ambiguity, the Five Fish SC-1 are wonderful meaty units for little money. - Garrett Haines, Recording Tips Editor, Tape Op, Chief Mastering Engineer, Treelady Studios

The X12 Mic Preamp captures that 70's aggressive rock sound, sometimes known as the "L.A. Sound". It's our take on a classic piece of Mic preamp. The Input and Output transformers gives this preamp a lot of aggressive, mid-forward flavor. The X12 has a little of that signature grainy upper mids with a more focused bottom end as one user puts it. Warm, big, punchy - another user said. You also have the option of using Discrete 2520/990 type op amps with this pre.

We'll let happy users of our EQ do that talking. One user said - Using them is like "changing the sound of the mic itself" and less "like using an EQ", that's how natural/unobtrusive they sound and work. Another said - The high end boost is gorgeous, the AIR band does exactly what it says, giving a smooth top end boost without getting harsh. The 12k setting gives much more detail while still sounding smooth. The PEQ-503 is great for cutting some mud from a mix or adding some depth to an instrument. Using this EQ, you can be as subtle or extreme as you dare!
