I'm selling some unused equipment from my home recording studio.
Both items are great preamps, for mic's or instruments.
Just don't need as my MOTU 896Mk3 Hybrid recording interface that has 8 mic/instrument preamps.
Add in the fact I'm selling off a lot of equipment as I'm 80 and don't need or use it any longer.
Both items are like new and being sold at fire sale prices. I can take paypal.
1. Presonus "Studio Channel" Tube Preamp.
This is a rack mount type.
Here is description from the Presonus site:
We named this channel strip the Studio Channel, and indeed its a wonderful studio tool. But its great for live performance, too. Featuring tube preamplification, a VCA-based compressor, and three-band EQ, it delivers a huge variety of timbres. Produce luscious, in-your-face vocals, dynamic acoustic piano, and fat, solid bass guitar, not to mention crystal-clear acoustic guitars and cracking snare. Yes, we got the name wrong; we should have called it the Anywhere Channel. But we got the design right.

Focusrite ISA One preamp.
Unit is sitting on a shelf in my studio and has never moved.
Only been used about a half dozen times. These are found in many high end studios.
This unit DOES NOT have the optional Digital Out. Your chance to pick up a very desired unit at below cost.
From the Focusrite site:
Featuring a rugged, portable all-metal enclosure, ISA One combines the classic Focusrite microphone preamp with a flexible, independent DI channel and optional 192kHz precision A-D conversion. At the heart of the ISA range is the microphone preamplifier with its Lundahl input transformer
essentially the same circuit, based on the original ISA 110, that has been used for 30 years in successive Focusrite designs. The input transformer imparts a special character to the sound that can't be truly emulated in any other way, while the modern twist of variable input impedance allows for a new degree of flexibility.
Whether you're an artist, engineer or producer, you'll appreciate the versatility of the ISA One, with its front-panel DI input. The DI includes low/high impedance switching and an amplifier output.
