Designed in 1972 AMS Neve 1081 Stereo Module Dual Channel Preamp / EQ was originally conceived as a combined mic/line preamp and equaliser section for the Neve modular consoles. It quickly became one of the best-loved mic preamps of all time. In practice, over three decades of engineers have found the 1081 an indispensable tool for recording and mixing drums, bass and percussion.
In recognition of the 1081s popularity, AMS Neve has resumed production.
