A Great, Does-it-all Preamp/EQThe original Chameleon Labs 7602 microphone preamplifier and equalizer made serious waves when it came out in 2005. With the 7602 MKII, Chameleon Labs gives you the sound of a '70s British console preamp, plus an amazing, sound-morphing 3-band EQ that takes full advantage of modern analog precision circuitry. The result: a classic console-style preamp that you can tweak to nestle comfortably in any mix. It's little wonder many of today's top recording engineers have made the 7602 MKII their number 1 go-to microphone preamplifier.
The power of the 7602 MKII starts with its input stage, which allows you to select the perfect impedance for your microphone. This function alone makes the 7602 MKII invaluable to any serious engineer, because it allows you to get a wide range of tone out of a single microphone. It also lets you get the most out of ribbons and other "low-output" microphones. Next, there's the 7602 MKII's switchable highpass filter, which lets you cut out the mud and other useless low-frequency noise that can cloud up your sound. Shelving high- and low-frequency EQ controls with selectable cutoff frequencies give you an enormous range of tone, and semi-parametric mid control lets you dial in frequencies from 360Hz all the way up to 7.2k - perfect for fine-tuning your sound.
A high-end, Swiss-made, 20-position solid-gold gain switch assures not only mechanical-noise-free operation, but quality that's built to last. A Switchcraft DI is also ready for years of hard use. (You'll probably want to write this amazing preamp into your will.) Finally, US-made tantalum capacitors and custom wound transformers give the 7602 MKII robust sound, all the way up to its +80dB maximum gain. If you're looking for a single great preamplifier/EQ that you can use for any microphone and any sound source, the Chameleon Labs 7602 MKII microphone preamplifier and equalizer is it!

by Anthony Fernandez from Atlanta, GAThis is one amazing pre/eq!!!! Very big sounding pre. The eq sweatens up your source. This is an incredible value. My uncle has one of these and two vintage Neve 1073's. He was amazed at how close the... read more [+]y have came to recreating the classic at this price range. Now they aren't an exactly the same but at this price range, "Amazing Close" is good enough for me. I haven't heard the X-Mod but have heard great things. You can hear this in action with the Avant CV-12 on Sho Baraka's - "We can be More Remix" on his vocals at the beginning of the track. close [-]

by Kendal O from Tulsa, OKThis is a really darn good preamp for the price. I have a lot of "Big Brand X" preamps from vintage and new companies that are twice the price of this thing, and it really holds it's own. I was lookin... read more [+]g for something that I could run live for toms - something I could EQ analog on the way in (because I always seem to EQ toms, no matter what the genre). My other channel strips are prioritized to kick and snare, and bass guitar. I wanted something that could totally hold its own but not break the bank. So, I bought a few of these and have been using them with amazing results on toms ever since.

This was TOTALLY the ticket. Sounds GREAT on toms, sounds great on drums and kills as a Bass DI. Wasn't too happy with it on vocals or acoustic guitar, but granted I have "Big Brand X" preamps that I use for that. If you don't have the money for expensive preamps, this thing really does sound great on almost anything. close [-]
