Avalon V5 - Black

The Avalon V5 Black is a half-rack/desktop mounted Class A preamp and DI box with additional tone shaping selections.

With a distinctive blend of active and passive circuits the Avalon V5 takes the exemplary sound of the Avalon Design commitment to excellence, to even greater heights.

For vocalists, the Avalon V5 preamp brings out your full sound and dynamic range with the best Class A solid-state circuitry you can find - not only that, the passive tone-shaper section lets you dial up more airiness for those silky smooth singing sounds using six different onboard tone contours and filter curves. But it doesn't stop at vocalists though - the tone-shaper stage will also optimise your bass sound to get you that warm, rounded, well-defined tone that you've been missing with lesser DI boxes and put the sonic sparkle back into your guitars.

Able to handle really high input signals and therefore ideal for modern ribbon microphones, the Avalon V5 also offers the perfect re-amping solution - not that common on many regular DIs - by using transformer-isolated outputs.

All products from Avalon Design share its philosophy of excellence - the Avalon V5 preamp and DI box is no different. It's a great-sounding all round performer whatever instrument you put through it.
