The A-Designs EM-Gold is part of a new line of microphone pre-amplifiers introduced by A-Designs. These Pre-amplifiers are original designs stemming from our inspiration of the "Quad Eight Sound". Each has its own unique character. Depending on which microphone you use, you will be able to open a world of color and sound to inspire you and your recordings.
The A-Designs "EM Series" is a twist on the P-1. Each color has its own sound. This was accomplished by using different custom wound output and input transformers.
The A-Designs EM-Gold is our latest pre-amplifier of the EM Series.
We took the custom wound output transformer of the EM-Silver and combined it with the custom wound input transformer of the EM-Red.
The results here made for the perfect sound on a floor tom!
It also produced great results with a number of microphones for vocals, Bass, and MP3/Drum Machines.
We can say that the EM-Gold produces the dark end of the EM-Silver with more "up front" mids.
