format_quote The RA26 design is based on API 528/536 input channel with some modifications to make them usable as standalone preamps.
Velvety realism and musicality are keywords that come to mind as soon as you listen to the sound of the RA26. The RA26 makes even the cheapest microphone footprint an enjoyable experience. Harsh high frequencies will get polished and you'll forget yourself into the comfy audio dream.
The RA26 is equipped with custom input and output transformers, Grayhill gain switch and an adjustable phantom power led indicator to name just a few components. The RA26 has sound, quality, design and price equally in one single package - that’s why it has quickly become the favourite preamp of our customers.
The RA26 suits well for amplifying any type of audio sources starting from drums, bass, electric guitars and all types of acoustical instruments plus of course the vocals. It makes everything sound warm and musical.
