Overview

SOLO/610 Classic Tube Preamplifier & DI Box

The All-Tube 610 Console Mic Preamp Sound in a Rugged “Go Anywhere” Design

The SOLO/610 delivers the classic Putnam 610 tube console sound in a rugged, highly versatile mic preamp design. This unit provides the silky, vintage warmth of the original console’s mic amp design, and will flatter any microphone or instrument with its signature sound. Thanks to its convenient form factor, the SOLO/610 can be conveniently used in the control room or the recording room, on stage, or on a desktop. Functionally lean but sonically mean, the SOLO/610 maintains the character of the 610 console — at a price every serious project studio can afford.

  • Classic Putnam 610 console mic preamplifier and DI
  • Legendary all-tube sound, at a project studio price
  • Gain, Level, and Impedance selection for maximum tonal variety
  • Hand-built in USA; backed by 1-Year limited warranty
  • View All Features

The SOLO/610 offers Mic and DI inputs, and features Gain and Level control for a wide variety of clean to colored tones. Unlike its predecessors, the SOLO/610 has continuous Gain control with even greater range, allowing for more precise gain structuring — doubling as input signal padding. The SOLO/610 has all the essential features like 48v Phantom Power, Lo-Cut filtering, Phase Reverse and flexible dual impedance selection for both Mic and DI inputs. The SOLO/610 includes essential DI features like Thru use in conjunction with an amplifier, plus Ground Lift and a versatile Mic/Line level output switch.

    Classic piece of gear
    by J. Cheek (Thursday 27 November, 2014)

    This was the first preamp I ever bought when starting out and I've never looked back. Used it for everything over the years. In particular now I love just plugging a bass straight in and knowing that I'm going to get a great sound straight away! Thank you!! Read More

    Killer Preamp for any source!
    by D. Saltzman (Wednesday 7 August, 2013)

    I have had the pleasure of working extensively with the 2-610 units and I knew I had to pick this guy up. It is my go-to DI for bass/vocals and sounds incredible with almost any source.
