Meris 440 Mic Preamp

The Meris 440 Mic Pre is a boutique 500-series microphone preamplifier with a difference – it has a built-in effects loop attenuated to guitar pedal level, meaning that whatever your mic is recording, you can now use your guitar pedals to add effects to it.

The all-analogue signal path benefits from a customised 4kHz or 7kHz high shelf switch, 20dB pad and full control over the 60dB of gain and output levels. The levels of creativity you can go to with the Meris 440 are only hindered by your imagination.

Where to buy

Product Description

The Meris 440 Mic Preamp is a unique 500 Series studio preamp with an integrated, pedal friendly effects loop designed and built in L.A., California. Designed to be the ultimate mic pre for guitar, the 440 is just as capable as a mic pre for vocals, percussion and other instruments as it is with handling acoustic and electric guitar transients.

The Meris 440 contains only the highest quality components available today, like legendary Cinemag input and output transformers and hybrid-discrete OpAmps that receive and drive each respective transformer section. These all unite to create highly sought after classic American tone reminiscent of famously popular mic preamps made in the 70’s.

Notable features of the 440 include:
– High Pass Filter that selects between 80Hz and 200Hz
– Custom 7kHz or 4kHz High Shelf Filter to achieve the optimum tone for your instrument recording
– 20dB Pad, Phase Reverse and Phantom Power switches

With immaculate attention to detail, the Meris 440 is solidly built and the front panel controls are clearly laid out and labelled, making it extremely easy to use. Plugging your guitar pedal into the effects loop means you can now add your favourite reverb or delay effects into the signal chain, distortion-free and without the need for any intermediary equipment. The effects loop input also doubles as a super-clean and smooth sounding D.I. for direct recording, adding to its versatility.
