Killer Mic Pre. Times Four.

The Manley Force Quad Mic Preamp uses a topology based on Manley's CORE mic pre section. It sports the same input level control and switch arrangement (minus one mic/line input). It also borrows the CORE's mic input transformer and 12AX7 vacuum tube gain stage. The main technical difference between the two units is the MOSFET White Follower, new to Manley. It also employs the same Entrodev switched mode PSU as the CORE.

Big Tube Sound

Have been recording with it for a couple months. Very clean and very quiet. The sound is solid and huge. Especially in the low end. The mid range and top end are very smooth and natural sounding. It slams on drums and bass but can also create sweet sounding vocals and acoustic guitar tracks. I enjoy it the most on acoustic sources. Great tube flavor for the studio at a reasonable price.
Music background: Songwriter, Musician, Engineer for a long time

Force Pretty is great.

Unusual design. ......pad instead of gain control. Sounds great on bass
