Clean or Character: the Choice Is Yours

Here's your chance to save some green on one of the best mic/preamp values around. The Anniversary RODE NT1-A microphone has a bright, full-bodied sound that takes vocals and acoustic instruments to the front of a mix without the need for much sweetening. And the MKIII version of the Golden Age Project Pre-73 preamp lets you color your mic and DI bass tones with shades of Neve for real vintage character and attitude. On top of these, Sweetwater is throwing in a quality Gator Frameworks mic stand and a noise-rejecting Pro Co XLR cable for a complete studio makeover at a great price.

RODE NT1-A Anniversary microphone is quiet, crisp, and clean

The RODE NT1-A cardioid condenser microphone is just as at home in front of a world-class vocalist as it is in front of a guitar cabinet. And its ultra-low self-noise means you can give your work the dynamics it deserves. The NT1-A can handle 137dB SPL, so you can be confident that even in front of a loud amp, your recording won't distort due to overload. This great mic comes with a shockmount, a pop screen, a dust cover, an XLR cable, and more. By providing ultra-quiet operation and versatility to handle a wide variety of signals, the NT1-A is an affordable studio solution!

Golden Age Project Pre-73 MKIII preamp delivers vintage character at a project-studio price

The classic Neve 1073 wrote the book on characterful mic preamplification, so in designing their Pre-73 MKIII mic pre, Golden Age aimed high. Given its mild price tag, it's amazing how well they succeeded. The single-channel Pre-73 MKIII is versatile, with 80dB of gain that lets you easily mic subdued sources with passive ribbons. Cranking the main gain stage imbues your tracks with tasty vintage-style coloration. Also onboard: phantom power, a broad gain-range DI, flexible I/O, switchable impedance, and an LED output level meter, all in a robust half-rack chassis. If you want a characterful pre with punch, Sweetwater recommends the Golden Age Pre-73 MKIII.

Gator Frameworks 2020 tripod mic stand is quick to set and compact to carry

The Gator Frameworks Tripod boom mic stand offers solid durability at a great price. Perfect for vocal mics, drum overheads, and just about anything for the home and project studio, this stable tripod stand with telescoping boom adjusts to fit your need in every situation. A standard twist clutch locks your stand height into place. Keep an entire collection of Gator Frameworks Tripod Mic Stand with Booms around, and you'll never have to scramble for a stand again.

Pro Co Excellines 25' XLR cable is guaranteed for life

Your mic and preamp are only as reliable as the cabling between it all. This Pro Co Excellines XLR cable is built from dual-shielded 20 AWG cable and has a durable, flexible jacket and rugged Neutrik connectors to make your signal path from mic to pre sound the best it can.
