Meris 500 Series 440 Mic Preamp
Terry Burton, founder of Meris wanted a way to interface pedals in the pro audio world. A 500 series unit was the highest quality way to do it. From the legendary Cinemag input and output transformers to the high performance hybrid-discrete opamps, the Meris engineers carefully made every design decision with the highest sonic performance in mind. The 440 features all analogue circuitry with Cinemag™ transformers and an ingenious effects loop which allows the use of guitar pedals to effect anything you put a mic in front of, be it vocals, acoustic instruments or guitar cabs. The 440 was simply designed as the ultimate mic preamp for recording guitar. Install a 440 mic pre into any 500 series lunchbox compatible chassis and connect your post effects pedals to the loop. Wield the legendary tone and integrate post effects pedals into your signal chain with ease. Your guitar & amp will love it.
