    Great River MP-2 Mic pre

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Over on protegy pro there has been a parts kit for the Great River MP-2 mic pre. This is with the blessing of Dan Kennedy.

    Currently there is an effort to do a second run of these very clean mic pre's. I think that this is YOUR chance to get going on a top of the line pre for your studio.

    Go here: http://www.prodigy-pro.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29360

    There is lots of help for building the MP-2 (I've got 2 myself from the first run) and it couuld be fun.

    I plan on adding perhaps 6 more kits....

    This looks cool -- but if you don't have a prodigy pro account (like me -- mine was never confirmed, probably because I'm an idiot), how do you get in on it?

    I'm all for signing up -- in fact I did create an account ("antichef") on the forum on May 28 of this year, but it's still not activated. Any trick to getting some love from the admin?

    Perhaps when the orange smoke dissapates the magic will be done.

    I wonder too. In the past there was a cost for the PCB and parts plus you couuld buy the multiposition switch (recommended) and I think that set me back (don't quote me) less than $100 per channel. Then there is the transformer options. Look for a group buy for the transformers of your choice or just buy them.

    Less than $200 per channel for a $600 per channel pre....

    regards Ethan

    PS but don't take any price I quoted as reality. I'm waiting to see what Ptownkid can come up with. Bought many things from him - trustworthy.

    I've never done anything with a parts kit, how does it work? What would I all have to do to assemble it?

    Lots of help over at protege pro - And some here.

    In general you get the PCB and most parts. You put the parts in the PCB and solder them in. Then you wire up the Switch and transformers. Now you need a Power supply (something like the ones from JLM works great) and a box to put it all in.

    It is DIY for sure.

    I've been thinking of getting some of those cheap (as in low $) Beheringer 2 channel mic pres in 1U boxes. Gutting them and putting my existing MP-2 in.
