Our Description: The Avedis MA5 is a single space 500 series microphone preamp based off of the classic Neve 1073 sound. True to the 1073, the MA5 provides a great colored Rock ‘N’ Roll sound adding thickness and character to any source. This unit has input gain and output trim control letting you drive the transformer harder for more coloration if you desire. Of all the Neve copies out there this is definitely one of the best.
