An homage to vintage channel strips

Black Lion Audio’s Eighteen starts with a vintage-inspired preamplifier — providing a creamy, yet punchy response. They topped that off with a passive induction-based program equalizer and output controls for pushing the analog stages to pure overdriven-bliss.

Eighteen’s preamplifier circuit is an homage built to pay proper tribute to some of the most classic designs ever made, creating great vintage tone, while still matching a noise floor that’s akin to modern equipment.

Featuring a custom-wound Cinemag transformer for the output, as well as output gain control for pushing the unit into pure overdriven-bliss. Black Lion Audio designed, engineered, assembles, and tests each unit by hand in the USA.


"The Eighteen boasts bags of character, clean gain with a solid punch, and colourful saturated tones. The powerful program equaliser in the classic EQP-1A mould creates satisfying EQ curves for individual sources and group busses alike.", 9/10 - MusicTech

"The Eighteen is a very nicely judged channel strip with a characterful, Melcor-inspired preamp and an excellent-sounding Pultec-style EQ. It won't spend much time sitting idle in your studio!", Sound On Sound
