Chameleon Labs 7602 MKII with X-MOD Option Mic Preamp / EQ at a Glance:
A powerful addition to your studio arsenal
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.
The X-MOD option gives you high-end British input and output transformers
The Chameleon Labs 7602 MKII with X-MOD Option X-MOD option adds high-end British input and output transformers from Carnhill/Saint Ives. These custom transformers give the 7602 MKII warm bottom end and smooth, gentle top that's perfect for tracking or mixing.
Built like a tank, for years of serious professional use
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!

Outstanding value, great sound!
by Eric J. from Saint Augustine, FLThis pre with the X-MOD option is a really great addition to any studio and is very affordable. I had first been exposed to the 1st edition of these preamps a few years ago at a studio in Los Angeles ... read more [+]and fell in love with the way they handled vocals and bass. When I learned of the MK II and the X-MOD output transformer upgrade to Carnhills I was ready to buy. This unit does not disappoint, and it does what so much of Chameleon labs gear does: takes inspiration from classical features from classic gear and then updates the design with affordable, high quality components. I don't think there's anyone who's used this preamp that doesn't feel like its worth way more than it's price tag. It is a very sturdy design with heavy duty input jack for DI and high quality knobs. This pre, for me, excels on vocals, bass, and DI guitars. I provide it very clean power from a Monster PRO 3500 on the analog circuit and it is extremely clean, low noise. It pairs well with microphones like the SM7B with ease and sounds awesome with a Lauten Oceanus as well as a Rode NT5's, AKG Solidtube, and even cheap Groove Tubes GT55. It is versatile and smooth EQ section does a fantastically good job shaping bass DI. Finally, comparing the 7602 MK II to a neve 1073 and the comparable Vintech, I've found to be three different subtle voices, all beautiful additions to get the job done. If you're looking for value per dollar though, the CL solution is one worth seriously considering. close [-]
