The PRE-73 PREMIER is a preamp offered by the Golden Age brand.

The PRE-73 PREMIER is a vintage-style mono preamplifier designed for microphone, line, and instruments. Its signal path uses exclusively discrete components such as resistors, capacitors, and transistors. Inputs and outputs are transformer balanced, with two transformers optimized specifically for their respective roles. It's a faithful approach to audio component construction from before the era of integrated circuits.

The PRE-73 PREMIER's circuitry is closely derived from the 1073 module's iconic preamp section, delivering a warm, punchy, smooth and musical sound character. These classic qualities have been omnipresent in countless recordings over the decades, suitable for a wide variety of sound sources and musical genres. Now this iconic sound is available at an incredibly affordable cost, making this quality accessible to everyone.
