Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $425$525

The A-Designs Audio 500 Series "EM" modules are transformer I/O microphone preamp / direct interfaces. All units in this series share the same basic feature-set, with differences in input and output transformers for different tonal characteristics. The front panel features input gain, +48V phantom power, a -20dB pad, polarity reversal, and a 1/4" instrument input.

The EM-Gold takes the steel output transformer from the EM-Silver and the nickel/steel input transformer from the EM-Red to create a sound that is "darker," more rolled-off in high frequencies.
