  • Overview:

    SSL 500 Series Mic Pre with a Twist

    The Solid State Logic VHD Pre is an incredibly versatile 500 Series mic preamp that delivers ultra-clean SSL SuperAnalogue-grade sound - with a twist. It's outfitted with SSL's Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) system. As you increase VHD input gain, the VHD process introduces either 2nd or 3rd-order harmonic distortion (or a blend of the two). At lower gain settings it adds gentle valve-like warmth or a touch of edge. As you increase gain, the more extreme the distortion becomes, all the way to trashed-transistor grunge. At Sweetwater, Solid State Logic gear has holy-grail status. Audition the VHD Pre, and you'll agree.
