Black Lion Audio has announced the release of the B12A MKII 500, an API®-style single channel microphone preamp just like their B12A MKII half-rack unit, but in the convenient and flexible 500 series format.
Black Lion Audio says that, already known for that classic API® American rock sound, the MKII version features an upgraded input transformer, higher gain, and lower noise than the original B12A. It also features an output transformer, a Hi-Z input, phantom power, pad, and phase.
Nate Bierdeman, Director of Marketing, told us, "The original B12A was very popular, but we were continually being asked by customers to modify them for more gain. So we created the MKII with higher gain and lower noise. This revision also gave us the opportunity to integrate a nicer input transformer, and has resulted in an incredible-sounding preamp with lots of API®-style gain. Now it's available in the popular 500 series format."
All Black Lion Audio products are designed and manufactured in Chicago, Illinois.
