Seventh Circle Audio has created a new revision of the A12B microphone preamplifier module offering a single stage preamp roughly based on classic American designs of the early 1970s. The company will be making one last production run and has taken to Kickstarter to make it available to anyone interested in owning one of the last A12B Microphone Preamp to be created.
Pledges are available from $299 and shipping throughout the United States will commence during June 2019. Seventh Circle Audio explains “if we get orders for approximately 60 modules in 30 days, we’ll do one last production run”.
“The A12B rev 1.3 will be the last revision of this long-running product. We’ve substituted a few new components to replace ones that have gone obsolete and fine-tuned the gain steps, but it is otherwise the same as rev 1.2. We’ve built (and sold) ten rev 1.3 prototypes already, and they measure and sound great.“
“With a Cinemag CMOQ-2S output transformer and our “slightly improved” version of the API 2520 discrete op-amp circuit, the A12B delivers an aggressive midrange and pronounced transformer coloration. The A12B sounds fantastic on rock drums and electric guitars, but is versatile enough to be used with any source and microphone combination.”
