Manley Preamplifiers

Manley FORCE - Four Channel Mic Preamplifer

Oh no, don't even think it. This isn't "Manley Lite." This is "Manley Leaping-Light-Years-Ahead" with four channels of vacuum tube microphone preamplifiers extracted from the hugely popular Manley CORE®, housed in an exquisitely gorgeous chassis, meticulously hand-crafted, purposefully and efficiently California built for $2500 MSRP. That's right. FOUR channels of real High Voltage vacuum tube micpreamps for $2500 bucks. More...


Manley TNT - 2 Channel Mic Preamplifer

Here is a twist: two different and discrepant mic preamps in one box for two different colors. By popular demand, one channel is the exact same micpre as in our SLAM! with tubes and transformers. The second preamp is a fresh "No Tubes" design inspired by old British console preamps and transformers. More...


Manley All Tube Dual Mono Mic Preamp

The MANLEY all-tube microphone preamplifiers are available in 2-channel or single channel versions, primarily intended for use with modern capacitor (condenser) microphones. Now, 40 to 60 dBs of gain, enough for most ribbon mics, are selectable in precise 5dB steps by varying the amount of overall negative feedback on the GAIN switch. This is a very interesting feature indeed, allowing you to change the slew rate (speed), placement, and tonal balance of the sound from mellow and "tubey-er" through to faster, punchier and more aggressive.

Manley All Tube Mono Mic Preamp

Tube complements are common to both mono and dual mono models: 1 x 12AX7EH hand-selected for lowest noise, and 1 x 6414 for each high-current output stage. Each unit is painstakingly hand wired using silver solder and audiophile-grade componentry. Double shielded custom-built power transformers and custom-built high capacity reservoir capacitors demonstrate our modern power supply design approach. More...

At this price, there is no other channel-strip with higher headroom or more seductive sound than the CORE. Handcrafted in the USA, built like a tank, built to endure, the epicenter of your recorded art will be the Manley CORE. More...


Manley VOXBOX®

Primarily, it is a voice processor which in itself is not a novel idea, but the time had come to pull out all the stops and make a truly professional high-end statement. One that covered the needs of the project songwriters and big-time major studios alike. One whose all-tube signal path could bring every instrument and overdub to life. One that, plain and simple, sounded unquestionably better than the rest, provided flexibility, simplicity, and well thought-out ergonomics. Full of features, timeless style, robust build quality, and that world-famous "Manley Sound", we present to you the MANLEY VOXBOX®. More...


The Manley SLAM!®

SLAM!® stands for "Stereo Limiter And Micpre" and it pretty much describes what it will do to most VU meters. We had to put a switch on this limiter to drop its internal VU meters down 3 & 6dB to keep the poor little needles from bending it'll get LOUD fast (hence the exclamation mark). And on top of being an amazing pair of (actually four) Limiters, and Class A tube mic preamps, it also has masters degrees in DI, AtoD and DtoA, VU and PPM but that was too much for an acronym.
