The DAV Electronics BG1 Mic Pre is stunning quality and incredible value for money. These are the pre-amp designs as used in the original Decca studios.

Massive gain, low noise and distortion, the pre-amp retains the integrity of the source like nothing else. With 3 HPF frequencies, clip LED, and pad per channel, with global 48V and phase reversal on channel 1.

A unique feature is a button that sends channel 1 input through outputs 1 & 2, for anti latency monitoring when using a computer system. The BG1 has click detente input gain and draws everything out of the microphone for a huge sound.

Every reviewer and end user has fallen in love with this unit, we think it's the biggest bang for buck in a dual mic pre.

Hand made in the U.K.
