About This Listing

Microphone PreAmp for the '500' format ("Lunchbox"). The MP599 has been developed by Sound Skulptor, a french specialist for high-end studio equipment, and built by hand in the Arillas Sunset Studio (30 years experience in assembling and maintaining of studio elektronics). Includes only premium components: LUNDAHL transformers (input, output), WIMA caps, Tantalum caps, high grade metalfilm resistors, etc.. The module comes fully calibrated and tested with a 3 years limited warranty.  


The MP 5.99 is based on one SK99 discrete Op-Amp, one Lundahl input transformer and one Lundahl output transformer.

Because of the high performance, mu-metal core Lundahl transformers, the MP 5.99 features the warmth of the iron but it is also an extremely transparent mic pre that will capture all sound sources with extreme finesse.

The MP 5.99 is great on all transient rich sources like acoustic and percussive instruments. It will shine in close or distant miking applications.

Technical specs:

Any question? Please ask!

Last but not least: please don't send me ridiculously low price proposals! To build such an unit in an appropriate quality takes more time than you may imagine. And needs some quite expensive equipment and a lot of experience. So please accept this or go for something different.
