API 3124V Discrete 4-Channel Microphone/Line Preamp

The 3124V is a four channel mic/line preamplier the features the same discrete circuitry found on all API preamp designs, including custom transformers and API 2520 op amps for incredible fidelity and detail on each channel. The 3124V is popular with drummers, and it's easy to see why: four premium preamps, each with switchable pads, phantom power, phase invert and 3:1/1:3 transformer tap selection means the 3124V can handle pretty much anything you throw at it—snare, kick, overheads, you name it. Of course, the 3124V's inherent flexibility means it's not limited to tracking drums: by including per-channel high-Z controls and balanced/unbalanced "Mic" switches, the 3124V can skillfully handle vocals, synths, guitars, basses, and more with signature clarity and warmth.
