Product Description

The Manley CORE is an innovative channel strip that combines Manley’s Greatest Hits with fresh technology. Building upon its 25-year legacy producing revered recording studio equipment; Manley Labs has distilled its CORE technologies from this lineage. The remarkably intuitive front panel combines musical and forgiving circuitry that allows the musician to concentrate on his performance instead of being lost in a sea of knobs. Ease of use and intelligently chosen operating points make it virtually impossible to cut a bad sounding track!

Manley’s experience and insight working with the industry’s top recording engineers and musicians culminates in the CORE. At this price, there is no other channel-strip with higher headroom or more seductive sound than the CORE. Handcrafted in the USA, built like a tank, built to endure, the epicenter of your recorded art will be the Manley CORE.

The signal enters through our renowned hand-wound MANLEY IRON input transformer with nickel laminations in a mu-metal can. The tube amplifying stage is the latest implementation of our famous Class A circuit topology found in the VOXBOX and Manley Dual Mono & Mono Microphone Preamplifiers. This all-triode vacuum tube circuit runs on a regulated 300 Volt B+ supply yielding huge headroom and relentless output drive capability.

THE BEST CHANNEL STRIP EVER
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the BEST channel strip ever. After going through several mic pre's and channel strips, I've finally found the one for me. The tone, the warmth, and not to mention the clarity. This thing is worth EVERY cent and dollar it cost. Manley has great with this piece as all of their equipment.

The "Must Have" mic pre!!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
This mic pre is one of the best I have ever used and I have used all of the "holy grail" mic pres and this one if not added to that list should be immediately. I have worked in the music industry for years with greats such as Michael Jackson, teddy reily, Brian Michael cox, usher and the list goes on and on. The compression,eq on this thing is absolutely killer it works amazing on everything!!! Got a bass? Plug it in and thump away, got a guitar? Plug it in and get some of the crispiest tone's that you can imagine, vocals? This thing can handle anything you throw at it get some of the smoothest vocals you've heard from a mic pre hear sounds you didn't even know you could. I will absolutely never part with this pre it has become the staple of my vocal chain!!! Trust me do yourself a favor and buy this thing if you gotta pick up extra shifts at work do it. Cut grass and trim trees? Do it. You will not be dissapointed!!!
