Vertigo Sound VSP-2 Dual Mic Preamp
The VSP-2 is a high quality dual channel microphone preamp design setting a new benchmark in microphone amplification with Vertigo Sound’s 100% discrete twin op-amp circuit at the heart of the unit. It incorporates two knobs of gain control along with toggle-switches for a low-cut input filter, 48V phantom power, phase-invert and a 20dB pad. Adding a switchable front-panel high-impedance instrument input to both channels, the warm and smooth sound of the VSP-2 will not only complement vocals but also electric guitars, acoustic guitars, drums and more.
If you’re in the market for a high-end, transformer-balanced microphone preamplifier then the VSP-2 should most definitely be on your audition list. The VSP-2 boasts of a two-step gain structure which not only gives it a full 72dB of gain, but also endows it with an extremely fine resolution within each 6dB band. Metering is suitably minimalist, with a single bicolour LED showing green at output levels. In addition to an outstanding level of build quality and performance, the VSP-2 also has its own sonic character, which rest assured, will be quite distinct from any other expensive transformer-balanced stereo mic preamp that sits in your studio.
