Big Bear Audio MP1 500

The MP1 500 series was created as an entry-level Big Bear Audio product, designed to be a quality studio reference mic pre at a great price by any industry standard. This world class discrete Class A recording amplifier gives producers and engineers the ability to add any Colour module they like to this high function unit.

The MP1 is not a replication of an existing design, or a clone of any kind. It was uniquely designed in-house at Big Bear Audio to provide engineers, producers and songwriters with an intuitive and creative microphone and instrument amplifier.

The MP1 combines a discrete electronically-balanced mic with the DIYRE Colour format. This means the MP1 can be used by itself as a studio reference amplifier, or in combination with any additional Colour module to transform the unit into a vast range of creative and useful tones.
