Yes, that’s right, the circuit of the earlier Mk1 needed a reverse log pot…. and I still have a few of these!

The Mk 2 uses a 22K lin pot…. the circuit is quite different. Both mixers sound very good, mainly because of the high overload margins and the delightfully simple Baxandall EQ, but I actually prefer the sound of the Mk 1 although technically it is inferior…. the mic amp distortion is on the high side…. but it is ‘class A’ so the distortion is pleasantly harmonic. :)

(Apologies for my error on an earlier post….. saying that the gain pot was the same on both models!)
