IGS Audio VANAD 500 is a mic/instrument preamp designed in the API 500 standard.

The module is a transformer balanced on inputs and outputs using IGS Custom made transformers. All regulators on the front panel are stepped switches.

This is excellent for recording any sources, including line signals from instruments like guitars or keyboards (Hi-Z input at the front of the unit).

VANAD 500 preamplifier can be used with a variety of sources: line signals, guitar pickups (via Hi-Z input), dynamic, condenser and ribbon microphones. With the separate gain and output controls (switches) you can push it nicely, but still make sure that you don’t overload the next stage of your signal chain.

The microphone input is accessible from the back and at the front of the unit. Handy!
