Paired to produce rich, warm vocal tone for singers, podcasters, and narrators, this bundle features the Black Lion Audio B173 MKII British 1073-style mic pre and DI and the Shure SM7B dynamic vocal microphone. The preamp's CineMag transformer, lush sound, and massive gain (up to 70 dB) make it a perfect partner for the SM7B. Through the use of the mic's onboard switches for bass roll-off and presence boost, you can effectively tailor the sonic impact to optimally suit your voice, whether you want it smooth, crisp, or flat.

Black Lion Audio B173 MKII Classic British 1073 Style Mic Pre and DI
Designed for recording engineers who want an updated take on the classic '73-style unit, the Black Lion Audio B173 mkII is a single-channel preamp with a warm, creamy, 1970s tone. It's suitable for recording vocals, keyboards, guitars, basses, and more.

This preamp gives you a half-rack package, with an XLR connection for microphones and a 1/4" jack for line-level or Hi-Z instruments. The output connection is handled by the 1/4" TRS output on the rear of the unit.

The unit offers a stepped input gain knob to ensure repeatability. It'll provide you with up to 70 dB of gain. You'll find controls for phantom power and polarity, while a Hi-Z switch will allow you to plug in your favorite guitar or bass for a DI recording.

The preamp utilizes a creamy CineMag transformer for that classic velvety '73-style sound. The output control is situated after the transformer. So, if you wished, you could drive the signal hard with the gain knob for a harmonically rich tone, then lower the output knob to avoid clipping your digital converter downstream.

Shure SM7B Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone
The Shure SM7B Vocal Microphone is a dynamic microphone with a smooth, flat, wide-range frequency response appropriate for music and speech in all professional audio applications.

It features a cardioid polar pattern, bass roll-off and midrange emphasis (presence boost) controls, and shielding against broadband interference. An internal air suspension shock isolation helps to eliminate mechanical noise transmission, and a yoke mount facilitates mounting and provides precise control of the mic position.

Flat, Wide-Range Frequency Response
The flat-frequency response enhances the midrange and high frequencies that are associated with the human voice.

Rejection of Electromagnetic Hum
Improved rejection of electromagnetic hum—optimized for shielding against broadband interference emitted by computer monitors.

Air Suspension Shock Isolation
Internal air suspension shock isolation virtually eliminates mechanical noise transmission.

Pop Filter
The detachable close-talk windscreen eliminates the need for any add-on protection against explosive breath sounds—even for close-up vocals or narration.

Cardioid Polar Pattern
Cardioid polar pattern effectively isolates signal source improving gain before feedback.
