“I could see the Sage pre’s being the front end for almost everything I do! I have used almost EVERY mic pre known to man at this point, and the Sage pre’s are really, really great. They hear things the way I hear things! Big, punchy, tons of great transient whallop… Impact… Open top end…. all the good stuff, with just enough discrete “gleam” to the top end (the sound of headroom).”
Joel Hamilton / Studio G
(Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Sparklehorse, Unsane, Frank Black … etc …)
Designed and hand-constructed by long-time record producer Phillip Victor Bova and friends ~ these pres use discrete class A transistor circuitry hand-selected precision-matched components, hand-wired and assembled to deliver an incredibly punchy and open sound quality.
Here are some samples of various instruments recorded exclusively through SE-Pre1™ mic preamps.
All of these samples were recorded digitally, completely flat and dry with absolutely no eq, compression, or effects processors of any kind. You can download these samples and import them into your digital workstation. This will allow you to hear them as we intended. Listen, and enjoy!
