Universal Audio SOLO/610 Classic Tube Preamplifier & DI Box
The all-tube 610 Console Mic Preamp sound in a rugged, “go anywhere” design.
The SOLO/610 delivers the classic Putnam 610 tube
console sound in a portable, highly versatile mic preamp design. It
provides the silky, vintage warmth of the original console’s mic
amp design, and will flatter and enhance any microphone or instrument
with its iconic tones.
Thanks to its convenient form
factor, the SOLO/610 can be conveniently used in the control room or
the recording room, on stage, or on a desktop. Functionally lean but
sonically mean, the SOLO/610 maintains the character of the 610
console — at a price every serious project studio can afford.
