The Red Solo Pre is a perfect partner for solists who just need one excellent preamp to do it all.
Due to its compact size, high headroom and bandwidth, not to mention sleek look, it meets all of these needs handily at a price that is affordable and is built in the USA with the quality you expect from Vintage Audio Designs.
The design Features 60Db worth of gain, an ultra low noise floor, Excellent Bandwidth and headroom, Fet DI input and a transformer output switching option to sit any source perfectly in the mix.
The Red Solo is unlike any design you have heard and is a boutique preamp that is perfect for vocals and guitar recordings all with the ease of one dial.

The Red Solo Pre, like all Vintage Audio units, utilizes Mil Spec components and the finest parts throughout, for the utmost clarity and lowest possible noise.
We have taken all of our years of experience Modifying equipment and tailoring sound to squeeze excellence into a desktop box worthy of any application but with Solists specifically in mind.
Its ultralow noise floor and sonic character was designed to sit vocals perfectly into any mix. Put it on Guitar, drums and more and let the preamp do the work!
By switching between Transformer and Active output stages you can sonically shift the Harmonic content in a way that fits your needs and is one of our favorite features.
The DI on these is a no compromise J-fet design with loads of headroom and dynamic range that is one of the finest DI’s on the market.

My parents taught me to invest my money wisely and that I shouldn't simply be buying something, I should be investing in something.
As my dad was heard to say after a long debate over the new fridge " I only want to buy this fridge once!"
