EXCLUSIVE GEAR DEBUTING AT THE VINTAGE KING BOOTH #1111:

Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Class A VK Limited Edition
Outwardly distinguished by the red lights illuminating its surface and hand-signed & numbered plaque on the rear, and inwardly distinguished by its fully Class A compression cells. The sound of the Class A discrete cell is outstanding; adding even ordered harmonic warmth, headroom for days and a character that can only be described as finished.

BAE 500 Series 1073D Mic Pre/EQ
Faithfully recreated using the same Carnhill transformers and Elma switches that used in BAE's 10 series modules. The 'D' stands for "deluxe," including switchable high frequencies, direct instrument input and an output attenuator.

Wunder Audio Cobalt Pre and Allotrope EQ
Wunder Audio's answer to the 500 Series. The Cobalt Pre has the same circuit, input transformer, and output transformer as the Wunder PEQ2. The Allotrope EQ has the same vintage-style, inductor-based Baxandall EQ found in the PEQ2, as well. Both units are available exclusively at Vintage King Audio in the USA.

SSL 611DYN E-Series Dynamics 500 Module
Reproduces the legendary sonic signature of the early 80s classic SSL 4000E console channel strip. The SSL E-Series Dynamics Module features a compressor/limiter and an expander/gate, both of which return faithfully to the circuitry and key components which define the sound of the original SSL E-Series channel strip.

SSL 611EQ E-Series EQ 500 Module
Reproduces the legendary sonic signature of the early 80s classic SSL 4000E console channel strip, which has added its touch to countless classic recordings from the 1980s to the present. The SSL E-Series EQ Module features two different EQs found on editions of the console produced between 1981 and 1989, the 'Brown' and 'Black' EQ.

Helios F760 Compressor/Limiter
At long last, Helios has reissued their acclaimed compressor/limiter module, responsible for so many great drum tones over the years. Drawn from an original design created for Island Studios Basing St., the new F760 is faithful to the original and will provide an excellent compliment to the reissued Type 69 mic pre/EQ.

Barefoot MiniMain12
We're proud to announce the brand new bold offering from Barefoot Sound, the MiniMain12 four-way active monitor! More details are coming in shortly... but suffice it to say that these are extremely linear, revealing monitors -- the pinnacle of Barefoot's advanced technological development so far.
