DAV BG5 MKII – Mono Channel Strip



The DAV BG5 Mk II (Broadhurst Gardens No. 5 MK II) is a fully featured 1U channel strip featuring a mic pre/DI, 3-band EQ and an optical limiter/compressor. The three elements of the channel strip are taken from models in the DAV Broadhurst Garden range.

The mic pre/di is from the BG1u and features stepped gain in 4dB increments and switchable 48v phantom power, -26dB pad, phase reverse, high pass filter, mic/line selector.

The 3-band EQ section is taken from the BG503 with an HF and LF shelf and a mid range bell. Each band features six carefully selected frequencies, each with 12dB of cut or boost.

The Dynamics ae taken from the BG504 and has stepped pots for input gain, recovery, threshold, ratio and make-up gain.
