Classic British Tone

The 1073-5T is famously known in the audio world as a “Turbo Neve”. Providing up to 75dB of gain the circuit consists of the classical 1073 dual input stage with two BA284 cards which retain the clarity and low end of the original while adding further harmonic distortion and coloration with the aid of a tube output paired with a 5:1 nickel output transformer.

Premium components

A UK made Carnhill input transformer, tantalum, polystyrene and Vishay capacitors, a premium selected tube and a custom US made nickel output transformer are all inside the Stam Audio 1073-5T.

Each part has been carefully auditioned and selected  to impart the same character and sound that these units are known for and will last decades to come.

Hand made in Chile

Each unit comes with phantom power, impedance and polarity switch and a built in DI. We assemble all our units by hand at our lab in Chile which allows us to audition and measure parts prior to assembling them so that every unit sounds exactly the same and is built with the same quality.

  1. Martín Cantolla

    Excellent preamp with lots of character. Once you get into the >55 gain levels, the sound really starts to saturate in a pleasing way, and in conjunction with the Trim knob you can set your desired output level. The distortion the unit generates when pushed is not suitable for all scenarios, but one can simply turn the gain down and it maintains crystal clarity, while still sounding “solid” and hefty. I’m an amateur with 10 years of recording experience, but can easily say this is top quality gear.

  2. One Step Studio

    I got this pre last month and tested it against console NEVE pre – I wasn’t disappointed at all! All electricity is at a top-notch level and the sound is just beautiful and jaw-dropping!
    Can highly recommend this Pre!

    I have two of these and LOVE the sound!
