Shadow Hills Mono GAMA 500 Series Mic Pre


Fully Tested with a Money Back Guarantee!

The Shadow Hills Mono Gama is a staff pick for one of the best mic preamps made today.

With the transformer switching, you get three mic preamps in one and can easily toggle between sounds to find the one that is right for your source.

For example, when used on a snare drum, the Steel Transformer will give you a fat, puncy sound, the Nickel will give you more “Funky Drummer” and the Discrete is perfect for brushes or nuance ghost notes.

We have a second Mono Gama from the same production run if you would like a pair. With the stepped gain switch, it’s easy to stereo-match!
