That’s quite a rarity… I designed the VC7 to be the very best quality mic amp that it was possible to build. It’s very conventional, with a high quality transformer input, and with switching to match different microphones; it was well ahead of its time. I remember the design very well…. it was a problem to keep the mic transformer in channel 2 far enough away from the mains transformer; I did it by putting both mic transformers together at the left hand end.
I knew it would never be a big seller, but it was for my own benefit rather than purely commercial.
I don’t think we built more than 10 of those…. but it’s a brilliant mic amp.
