The BAE 1028 Preamp & EQ is a 19-inch rackmount unit that is completely hand-wired using Carnhill St. Ives transformers. The 1028 has the exact same mic/line preamp as the 1073, but with significantly more frequencies in the mid and hi sections.
Aside from simply offering more frequency settings to play with, these expanded EQ sections also allow you to play the mid bell curve directly against the high and low shelves where they overlap. This capability opens the tone shaping possibilities in very interesting and musical ways. The 1028 includes the same low pass filter as the 1084, giving it 28 frequencies.
This version does not include the 24V power supply or linking cable, which is sold separately. If you already have a power supply then this unit is ideal for adding a second 1028 to your recording setup but you will need to purchase an additional 5-Pin DC Linking Cable. if you don't have a power supply then you will want to look at the BAE 1028 Bundle.
