I bought my first Vintech 573 when they were first introduced. I have purchased 2 more since then. This preamp has that classic 1073 sound without the exorbitant price of other manufacturers. I use this piece on just about anything you can imagine on a daily basis in my studio. It works every day, and it sounds great everyday!

Don't believe the poo pooing

First off, I have to say I've never used any other 1073 clones or the real deal for that matter, so I can't comment to that. What I can say is this Pre rocks!! On guitars this thing is bad ***. I can compare it to Daking, API and the 4710d and the 573 has won guitar tracking duties. It just add a wait and presence to heavy guitar that sounds fat and thick and sit well in the mix. On vocals I was very impressed as well. The APIs and Dakings are still my main pres for drum tracking, but honestly I just haven't had enough time tracking drums with this pre to commit. The bass DI is nice too. I will be buying a second 573 for sure.

573 is the perfect amount of fuzzy!

The Vintech 573 has quickly become my favorite mic pre for vocals. It provides the right amount of warm fuzziness while keeping the signal clear. A great buy for a wonderful price.

Vintech 573 simply rocks

I am extremely happy. I have both the vin tech 573 and the neve 1073lb and I can say the vintech has more character. Love it. I am going to get at least 6 more to have a total of 8. Amazing.
