The VT-737SP Recording Channel, probably the most famous Avalon product, is a modern classic among recording aficionados. When it premiered in 1998, the VT-737 was pretty much unique with its feature set, quickly establishing a fan base among the US Hip Hop community as the go-to channel for first-rate vocal recording. The story goes that around the year 2000 audio hardware suppliers were constantly getting new orders from freshly signed artists for "an MPC and a 737, please!" The label advance was quickly reinvested where it mattered.

The 737 quickly established itself as a technical standard, as a must-have piece of hardware. Avalon Design’s classic offers a potent combination of valve preamp, opto compressor and 4-band EQ for vocal recordings. The SP version (short for Special Performance) offers a higher performance microphone input transformer than the original. To cut to the chase: the VT-737SP is cannot be recommended highly enough for everyone in need of a channel strip with supremely transparent yet finely balanced sonic characteristics while also offering flexible options for crafting the ideal sound when recording.

Looking for a mic pre? Look no further than the AD2022 and the M5. Both models feature Class A designs, with the first of these two very special units playing in the top league of reference-standard recording hardware. The AD2022 offers a range of special features including selectable microphone input impedance matching, wiring crafted from Teflon/silver and double-plated circuit boards for excellent performance at even the lowest signal levels. The M5 brings the trademark Avalon sound to project studios, offering ease-of-use and impressive sound quality while remaining affordable for medium-sized budgets thanks to its mono-channel configuration. Both of these astoundingly versatile mic pres are suited to a wide range of recording situations, including vocals and violins right through to guitars and percussion, including DI functionality.

At the end of the day, it’s what you hear that will make up your mind, which is why these and further Avalon products are available to test in-store at your leisure. If you want to get your order in right away, you’ll get our famed 3-year Thomann warranty and 30-day money back guarantee. As well as excellent pricing and availability.
