Following on the success of their CORE reference channel strip, Manley Labs has announced the Manley FORCE, a four-channel high voltage vacuum tube microphone preamplifier, available for $2,500.

Manley Labs President and co-founder, EveAnna Manley, told us, "From the onset I wanted this product to blow the doors off the price-to-value ratio, while retaining every single ounce of Manley quality, reliability, and integrity. Everyone is wondering how we could possibly do this for $2,500. We achieved this by prioritizing what really matters-delivering that signature Manley sound-and by engineering it to build efficiently. We really paid attention to how it pops together."

Here's Manley's description of their latest product:

From the CORE, the FORCE incorporates the same proprietary hand-wound Manley Iron® mic input transformers and 12AX7 vacuum tube amplifying stage operating from 300 V rails. Each channel includes a high-impedance, ¼" instrument input as well as an XLR microphone input. On the front, each channel features a 120 Hz high-pass filter, variable input-level pad, phase invert, selectable +48V phantom power, and a high/low gain switch. The CNC machined faceplate features seven-way LED metering for each channel providing instant visible feedback for audio levels. The universal power supply accepts any voltage or frequency from anywhere in the world facilitating travel for international recording projects. As with all Manley gear, each unit is painstakingly hand-wired using silver solder and audiophile-grade components, and hand-built in California. 

Pricing and Availability:
$2,500 USD
