Tube-Tech MEC 1A
Special Order

Sweet-sounding, All-in-one Recording Channel

The exciting tube-based technology inside the remarkable MEC 1A will astound you! Featuring a microphone preamp equalizer and a compressor , the single channel MEC 1A is almost totally tube. Only the power supply isn't tube-based. The shelving and bell filters are all designed around a tube operational amplifier, while both input and output have fully floating transformers. The front panel design provides smooth, responsive control and includes a simple yet very precise VU meter for accurate monitoring of output or compression. And what the MEC 1A brings to your sound is immeasurable. A perfect addition to your studio, the MEC 1A will continue to astound you for years.
