Fully assembled, tested, and ready for an opamp!
The Classic Audio Product of Illinois VP26 brings you the sound and vibe of the classic American console preamps through meticulous recreation. These preamps sound phenomenal and are absolutely excellent preamps for guitars, drums, and vocals. This pre has been professionally built and includes an LED phantom power indicator not available on previous versions.
This badass build is ready for a 2520 opamp like a Scott Liebers Red Dot 2520 (or Gar 2520) for a truly authentic vintage sound. The output attenuator lets you crank the input for adding additional grunge, if desired, while keeping the level from clipping your converters.
Is the GAR 2520 or SL 2520 Red Dot right for me? Well, that depends on what you're looking for. We find the GAR to sound a bit smoother and fuller, while the Red Dot is a little more aggressive and colorful. You can't go wrong with either, and they're so easy to swap, that lots of us have both!
Includes a one-year warranty on the preamp.
