SSL announced at NAMM the release in March of the API 500 version of its VHD Pre solid-state mic preamp.

The VHD Pre Module is a versatile mic preamp based on the SSL Duality preamp section. You can use it for a SuperAnalogue-style clean sound, but its VHD (Variable Harmonic Drive) switch engages a fully analog signal path to generate distortion: by increasing the VHD input gain, the module add 2nd, 3rd or a blend of both harmonics to the input source. When the gain is decreased, this circuit adds tube-like warmth.

Specifications:

  • SuperAnalogue quality microphone preamp
  • VHD distortion circuit
  • Switchable low-pass filter (15 - 500 Hz)
  • Hi-Z switch
  • +48V phantom power switch
  • Pad for line level use
  • Phase reverse switch
  • Gain range: +20 / +75 dB
  • Drive control to select between 2nd, 3rd harmonics or a blend of both (continuously variable)
  • Output trim : -20 / +20 dB

The SSL VHD Pre Module will be available in March for $699 / 503,37 € + VAT. More info at www.solidstatelogic.com.
