Now in its second generation, the GoldMike Mk2 is a dual channel microphone and instrument preamplifier which combines tube and transistor technology to forge a wealth of different tone and character options.

The Best Of Both Worlds

GoldMike Mk2 brings the efficiency of low noise discrete transistor amplification to the musical coloration and warmth of a dedicated tube stage, conquering both sides of the tonal spectrum in a single preamp unit.

The GoldMike's unique transistor stage negates the use of integrated circuits as these cannot be optimised to SPL’s standards. Instead the stage's Class A design comprises a single transistor and fully discrete circuitry, offering unbelievable dynamic range and clarity for the preamp’s price point.

Meanwhile the tube stage offers a selection of three independent amplification levels: the standard +6 dB, +12 dB and finally +18 dB. This allows for a wide range of different saturation levels and limiting effects.

Feel The Flair

Another unique technology from SPL has been integrated into the GoldMike Mk2: Flair. Powered by harmonical behaviour from the preamp’s internal coils, the Flair control feature acts as a presence filter to make the recording element more or less prominent in any mix.

SPL have also included a pre-output stage Peak/FET limiter for extra compression. This can be utilised to add more punchiness to a source, or more functionally to avoid clipping before the signal reaches the AD conversion stage.
