Daking Puts Two Premium Studio Tools in One Rackmountable UnitThe Daking Mic Pre/EQ combines a 4-band EQ with a high-quality mic preamp for great results from a very easy-to-use, compact unit! The Mic Pre/EQ uses discrete circuitry, Class A amplifiers, and Jensen transformer-balanced inputs and outputs, giving you the richness of classic console sound and the dependability and low noise only modern technology and production techniques can provide. Large aluminum knobs give you easy adjustments to EQ and output functions, while well-placed high- and lowpass, pad, and phantom power buttons are right where you need them on the Mic Pre/EQ.
Daking Mic Pre/EQ Class A Microphone Preamp and 4-band EQ at a Glance:
Make some magic
Based on the original "A Range" circuit design, the Mic Pre/EQ is made to give you that classic "magic" touch to your signal, while its clean construction and quality components ensure that this unit will be right at home in even the most discerning modern studios. The Mic Pre/EQ gives you five stepped frequencies per band plus continuously variable boost and cut. All relay switching uses gold bi-furcated contacts for positive, reliable results. You also get switchable phantom power and 20db pad on the mic input.
Built for your studio
The Mic Pre EQ is a high-performance microphone preamplifier and four band equalizer. Like Daking's FET II Compressor Limiter and the MPIV 4-channel mic pre, the Mic Pre-EQ uses all discrete transistor circuitry, Jensen transformer-balanced inputs and outputs, and Class A amplifiers. Plus, it's all packed into a very compact and convenient rackmountable stainless steel chassis that's a perfect fit for any studio, big or small.
The Daking story
Having broken into the music industry as the drummer for '60s psychedelic band the Blues Magoos, Geoff Daking went on to truly make his mark designing and building boutique-quality studio gear. His company's latest offerings not only look classic, sound great, and perform solidly - you'll be knocked out by their decidedly non-boutique prices. Daking puts a premium on putting quality components at the heart of his gear, from circuits to transformers to amplifiers, while implementing modern techniques to ensure reliable, consistent performance.

Great Preamp with an Awesome EQ!
by Jonan from Athens, TNThe Daking Pre/Eq, in my opinion, is a wonderful addition to any studio. The build/sound quality is top notch and the price is great!

Most versatile mic pre and personal favorite
by MK from Atlanta, GAGeoff says he designs gear with a "get home early" philosophy, and this box has made my life easier for sure. I have two. Besides tracking, I use them across the 2-bus when mixing down. It's modeled a... read more [+]fter the preamps in the Trident A-range and sounds fantastic on everything. I have other preamps, very good ones, but I always plug into one of the Dakings first. Nine times out of 10 that's where I'll stay. The EQ section is a total no-brainer, a perfect choice of musical frequencies for tracking, and the fixed "Q" for each band always feels just right. But the best part is the inclusion of high- and low-pass buttons that emulate the natural roll-off characteristics of magnetic tape. They are a godsend. I keep them in all the time. I'm totally spoiled for other mic pres because it's so ridiculously easy to get terrific sound out of this box. There's nothing not to like. close [-]
