Neve 31099, the lesser known brother of the 1073.

Neve 31099, the lesser known brother of the 1073.

The 31099 is the lesser known brother of the 1073. It has almost the exact same characteristics as a 1073 with 2 exceptions. 

  1. It only has a mic input rather than both a mic and a line input. This means you really need to attenuate any line level signal before sending it through a 31099. 
  2. The 31099 also has a different transformer to the 1073. When purchasing a 31099 it’s important to get the version with the desired transformer. The early models used a mariner or St. Ives 10467, later models used a Bellclere TF10014 which were excess telephone transformers which unfortunately can be a little microphonic. This means that if you tapped the module you can hear it in the audio. The way to tell the versions apart is the Bellclere is a silver stamped packet. The Marinair or St. Ives is green with a hammered finish or a white resin top.
