Vintage 1073 Mic Pre

No other mic preamp is as legendary as the 1073. This Class A device is revered for its round and musical coloring. This is the guitar sound for so many legendary records. Typically you see the 1073 in the signal chain mic’ing a guitar amp, but music professionals know it is a fantastic way to capture instruments directly. Bass, Keyboards, Guitars - they all sound wonderful when plugged directly into a 1073. A single channel of a vintage 1073 can easily set you back $5,000, but now Kemper users have access to the same jaw-dropping tone of top studios around the world.
