Exceptional clarity and transient response

At the heart of the Quad GAMA is the Shadow Hills Discrete Operational Amplifier. Notable for its exceptional clarity and lightning-fast transient response, this op amp is responsible for the Quad GAMAs remarkable transparency and absence of coloration. If you've got a track that needs coloration, however - read on.

Switchable output transformers for sonic variety

You have remarkable control over the tone and vibe of your music with the Shadow Hills Industries Quad GAMA, thanks to three switchable output transformers. Switching transformers provides a subtle but significant tonal shift, allowing you to choose the right vibe for your material. Choose from iron, nickel, or steel output transformers to get the iconic sound of different styles of classic mic preamps.

Get the right sound at the source

The Shadow Hills Industries Quad GAMA deliverrs the world-class sound quality you need to produce great material every time, but its incredible flexibility is the main reason you need it in your studio's rack.

By having multiple sonic flavors in one mic pre, the Quad GAMA lets you spend less time getting the right sound and more time recording great music. And as any experienced engineer knows, if you get the right sound during tracking, mixing becomes much easier and much more creative.
