I bought your sc1 mk2 preamps months ago. Have only opened this to set up and assemble it......amazing wont describe the sound quality, my friend...its actually awesome sounding preamp...I am more than impressed ..I have a range of new and old preamps also have many emulation preamps...but none was sweet as this pre. Best money invested. - M.Nambi, Ireland
I must say that the preamp has more than met my expectations. Ultimately I wanted to get another preamp, but didn't because I didn't have $2400 to throw down on a rack unit of preamps. At this stage in the game for me and my studio, I simply wanted one channel of *that sound* or something similar enough to give me an overhead mic that was punchy on drums, or could act as a second mic on other acoustic instruments for a different flavor that could be mixed in. Well as it stands after hearing it, the X-12 has now taken a front seat with everything I'll record from now on! I will probably get a second one eventually. Great job! I'm very pleased with it.
If you want a good sounding preamp with little risk or ambiguity (no sourcing of parts) the Five Fish SC-1 are wonderful meaty units for little money. - Garrett Haines, Recording Tips Editor, Tape Op, Chief Mastering Engineer, Treelady Studios www.treelady.com
