The 572 Red Stripe is a Tube Mic Pre, inspired by the 60s classics by Siemens.
The module is transformer balanced on input and output using Sowter and Edcor transformers. All regulators on the front panel are stepped switches.
50 Hz HPF switch.
Very much recommended in combination with sometimes (too) hard sounding FET mics such as U87, particularly when close miking.
Also highly recommended as DI for electric bass.
“Big and warm” written all over it.


dB says

Well, this is definitely the very unit we recommend to anybody looking for a 500s based tube mic pre.
Exzellent price / value ratio.
Pristine craftmanship inside and outside with a big sound for adults.
Like everything by IGS it does exactly what it says it does:
No more, no less, nothing sacred, nothing saint.
Highly recommended to anybody looking for a budget mic pre.
