Born on the 10th of May 1970, the 1073 is possibly the worlds most desirable and famous microphone pre amp. Used extensively by leading producers and artists, it has delivered the unique Neve sound to some of the most famous recordings of the past thirty years. The big punchy sound of the 1073 compliments any musical genre. From rock to pop, hip-hop to rap, thrash to classical, the versatile Neve 1073 rules supreme and is deserving the title as the worlds most desirable pre amp. The handcrafted, hand wired, Neve 1073 reissues has been reproduced to the exactly specifications of the original modules. Neve has devoted much time to sourcing the same components to ensure the sound remains true. The 1073 offers 3 bands of EQ, with one fixed high frequency band and two switchable bands with cut and boost. Neve Channel Amplifiers are designed to accept signals from microphone and line sources. Low noise and distortion and generous overload performance are important features of these amplifiers.
