IGS Audio 572 Red Stripe mic/instrument preamp is designed in the 500-standard. The module is transformer balanced on input and output using Sowter and Edcor transformers.

All controls on the front panel are stepped switches.

572 Red Stripe is an excellent preamplifier, that can be used with a variety of sources: line signals, guitar pickups (via Hi-Z input), dynamic, condenser and ribbon microphones, providing outstanding results.

With one knob gain control (41-stepped) you can push it nicely, but still make sure that you don’t overload the next stage of your signal chain. The second stage overloading gives some sweet harmonics vibe. Adds a lot of unique flavour. HiZ input is accessible from the front of unit. Handy!
