SPL GoldMike
The lamps are their taff. Flair button brings some clarity (say treble frequencies) but it's not obvious. 48v a knob, a phase reverse for each channel is significant. THE compression is the compression pump. Instead, it is so quiet that you wonder if there really is one. Headroom fill all the microphones in demand.


It's simple mega. You plug you play.


The sound with my Oktava MK 012 or Rode NT2A have provided a lot of fun to my listeners. As the saying quequ'un on notice. It is not obvious but it's not where we reap the benefits of this microphone.
It's the mix that we feel the difference. The instrumenst are easier to mix (maybe better dgestion transient), the work of equa pus is fast etc ...
The preamp tube is ..... neutral. If you are looking for coloring go your way.


I used 5 years, I sold it because thunes need. I bitterly regret I seek another okaz but it will be when people apply exorbitant prices for the okaz. Buy as much new at the German vendor well known. 469 euros.

My grades are based on what you expect from a product in this price range. No comparison with a Tubetech MP1A for example.

Previous reviews ultra complete.
The aesthetic beauty is part of the pleasure of possession, and the look of this preamp throws!


Config ultra simple. Each control makes a clearly audible result: I have in front of me in my cabin miking, always with my headphones on when I recorded, and the settings are there, clearly, precisely, and effective.


We always talk about transparency. I believe 100%. I listen to the sound of my synth Roland GAIA SH-01 directly into the headphone socket or after passing through the SPL is exactly the same without any correction.
It adds shine and a "binder" through its "Flair" function, but it is the only color it brings (on request) on your sound.
I spend in my dynamic mics (one Tbone ribbon RM700) and my static APEX 460. Given the power reserve it and the quality of treatment that brings even low level (with APEX, really do not need push the SPL), it is endowed with a pretty amazing versatility.
I go there too, so my synth Gaia, my digital piano Yamaha NP-30, and two expanders. By pressing the pads mitigation it can sound loud and clear without distorting, and the record is over the top. Furthermore, using both lanes, I can keep the stereo (interesting, for example, with patches of Gaia where the delay occurs ping-pong, or the Grand Piano on the NP-30 is off restitution as assumed be a high-end piano captured in stereo).
Briefly, a 10/10 well deserved.


I have this gem since October 2013, advised by a zozieau p'tit Afien the split shell. Sound advice which made me make good the quality of my sound.
Here, no correction EQ board is mic placement who gets a hand to sculpt more acute or severe, and it is very instructive to go back on these bases there. If you did well and the pickups are pretty good, the EQ subsequent changes in STAN are not even always necessary. It saves a lot of time, and it is very rewarding.
Until then, I had (good enough) a preamp mixer Alto Professional S 8 sold since, and always Lunnar TP-01 preamp with a compressor (good for some things), but also three bands EQ which too often go chercer corrections to the socket are missing out on the essentials (or mask).
In short, I love everything about this preamp, and have nothing to complain about. It is absolutely canon in terms of price / quality ratio since I had nine 470 € in which Thotho déstockait last before replacing the catalog by his successor (autremement more expensive).
I would be very unhappy if he were to let go, knowing that to replace the budget would be radically the same.
10/10, not mégottons!

Amazing Mr Croche's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good and simple"

SPL GoldMike
- Class A tube preamp
- Inputs XLR, XLR or TS
- Dynamic range 111 dB
- 48 V phantom power
- Button phase inversion
- Attenuation 30db
- Filter treble
- Boost frequency of 1.5 kHz to 20 kHz

Very simple to use, the microphone gain setting and go.


I only used it recently, I did some acoustic guitars and I confess to being very satisfied.
Neutral amp. No staining, and just heat of the spectrum. this is his strong point and his weak point at a time.

Few recording solutions but how effective!


In short, simple, not too excessive, effective.
I did not intend to sell it (unless you give me one more!)

Everything is already said. It is true that there may be line inputs, instrument .... but I like the simple stuff that is exactly what he announced.


Very very simple.


Very good quality in its price range I do not think there is better. Manufacturing is neat and you can hear. Very straight, no excessive coloring, big headroom. I use it regularly with Oktava for overheads and it is cool, but I have included a piano, guitar, amp ....


This must be four years I have. I also use the tl audio (5050 track and fat), q Joemeek twin, and I find complements spl. Very good value for money and it was a very good result in the end.
