BAE 1073DMP Desktop Mic Pre

The First Portable 1073 Mic Pre

The 1073 DMP features the same pre-amp and the same Carnhill (St Ives) transformers as the 1073 and 1084.

All units come standard with the ‘Bootsy Collins’ mod which consists of an OEP Carnhill DI transformer to create the first 1073 direct box. The 1073DMP features include two DI thrus, phase reverse, 48V for phantom power, a built-in PSU for extra portability and the same hand-wired modular design that BAE is known for.
