Special Order

A Solid Addition to Any 500 Series Chassis

Choose the JDK V10 500 Series microphone preamplifier for a versatile preamp that'll serve your studio all day long. With up to 54dB of gain and low-noise performance, the V10 is a solid foundation for your recording chain. The front-panel combo input also lets you plug your guitar or bass in directly for top-notch DI recordings. And since it's designed and built by API engineers, you know your studio can rely on the JDK V10 single-channel mic preamp.

JDK V10 500 Series Single-channel Microphone Preamplifier at a Glance:
  • Enough gain and flexibility to be a true studio workhorse
  • Great as a direct input for guitar and bass too
  • Built to last
Enough gain and flexibility to be a true studio workhorse

The JDK V10 packs 54dB of gain, plus a -20dB pad for your mic input (-10dB when you're using the instrument input). When you factor in the low-noise performance, that's the right combination for the vast majority of recording tasks you'll come across in your studio - and the results sound fantastic.

Great as a direct input for guitar and bass too

When you record an instrument direct, you know that maintaining every sonic ounce of harmonic content is crucial. Plug your guitar or bass directly into the JDK V10, and you'll capture every detail. It's a solid foundation for re-amping guitars, and it's also great for bass tones that require little further processing.

Built to last

Since the late '60s, API (Automated Processes, Inc.) has built some of the most reliable - and fantastic sounding - audio gear for professional use. Over the years, API engineers occasionally came up with ideas that just didn't fit in directly with the rest of the API line, and thus JDK was created. JDK gear is developed and engineered by API, with a sonic character all its own. Even if you're a mobile engineer that puts your gear at risk daily, you can count on the robust design of the JDK V10 microphone preamplifier module.

JDK V10 500 Series Single-channel Microphone Preamplifier Features:
  • High-quality microphone/instrument preamplifier for 500 Series chassis
  • Conforms to API's 500 Series format, and is a member of API's VPR Alliance
  • Up to 54dB of gain, with low-noise performance
  • -20dB pad (-10dB for instrument input) gives you the headroom to handle louder sound sources
  • Switchable 48V phantom power and polarity invert
Get your sounds right from the source, with the JDK V10 preamp!
