With two channels of the classic tone you know and love, 72dB of gain, sweepable high-pass filters for precise control, and the power of Mr. Rupert Neve’s dual-tap transformers with variable Silk saturation, the 5211 2-Channel Mic Preamp delivers a versatile, flattering, and uncompromising front end for any signal path. In short, it’s everything a mic preamplifier should be.

Mic Preamp Features

  • 12-way precision rotary switch controls gain from 0 to 66 dB in 6 dB steps.
  • Continuously variable +/-6 dB level control.
  • 8-segment LED bar-graph meter displays output level (pre-Silk). from -30 dBu to +22 dBu.
  • Reverses the polarity of the input signal.
  • Continuously variable from 20Hz to 250 Hz, and engaged with the HPF button.
  • -6dB Output: A secondary split off the output transformer with a lower headroom, designed to allow engineers to fully drive the output of the 5211 without clipping converters and other devices.
