Hi and thanks for this very useful forum!
I have a Joemeek VC7 preamp in my studio and I think it sounds very nice and also look very cool with my SC2
Anyway I haven’t found too much information about this unit so I would be very pleased to hear anything about it… I suppose there wasn’t too many of these made or at least it was not really top seller. Anyway I feel it is quite unique and nice sounding preamp and I am happy to have it.
All the best!

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.November 2, 2009 at 7:00 pm #15587lakesidestudiosParticipant
I have a VC7. It’s my main pre amp, I love it. It’s my front end for pretty much everything I record. Works great with ribbons, If I could find another I’d snap it up. The ‘decoded’ MS outputs are great for monitoring MS recordings. Mine’s seen constant use since I bought it direct from the factory (complete with black JM 47 and JM 478). It now needs attention, channel 1 has become intermittently noisy. Fancy having a look at it Ted?November 3, 2009 at 9:25 pm #15588Ted FletcherKeymaster
Yes, I’m happy to have a look at that one!
Just send it to me at the Sound House and email me direct with the return address. As you have seen before on the forum, I charge £25 as a fixed charge to service/fix anything (except mixers!) plus the cost of returning the unit to you.
It will be a pleasure to fix a VC7.
