Got Red?
The Focusrite Red 1 500 Series mic preamp brings legendary Red Series mojo to the popular 500 series format. The Red 1 pre became an essential kit in the world's top studios, thanks to its unique signature sound and its ability to perform flawlessly with any microphone. With 66dB of gain, you can use the Red 1 500 Series pre with your condensers, dynamics, and ribbon mics, too. Like the original Red Range, this module is made in England with classic Red circuit topology and components. Put Red in your rack: the Focusrite Red 1 500 Series mic pre.

Original input and output transformersThe Focusrite Red 1 500 Series mic pre features the same Lundahl LL1538 input transformer and custom Carnhill output transformer as the original Focusrite Red 1 and Red 8 preamps. These ultra-high-quality transformers give the Red Series its unique and transparent character.
