Not your everyday preamp! When you're wanting to spice up your 500 Series rack, the Inward Connections Magnum VU does just the trick. This handmade preamp offers classic warmth with a certain airiness plus headroom for days and days. Lending a special flavor to vocals, the Magnum VU is not to be pigeonholed, earning street cred as a secret weapon on guitars, keyboards, and other low-level instruments thanks to its front-panel 1/4" jack. A phase switch anticipates you adding a second Magnum VU to your rig. You'll want to.
Don't let the Magnum VU's non-assuming look fool you, this 500 Series preamp stealthily injects a dose of huge tone into your Lunchbox. We find it has a warm, up-front low-end transitioning into a bombastically punchy midrange and a nicely wide-open top end. It's a different flavor altogether that manages to impart a tight sound without going over the top. Something different than the old standbys and definitely a dark horse to watch.
