  • Extended EQ settings in the mid and treble range
  • Hi- & Low-Cut, Hi-& Low-Shelf and Bell-EQ with wide frequency spectrum
  • Shelves and bell filters can be driven against each other and open up a wide range of sound shaping possibilities
  • Direct instrument input (Hi-Z DI) via jack plug
  • Phantom rotation and EQ bypass
  • Switchable input impedance of 1200 or 300Ohm for flexible microphone adjustments


  • High-Shelf: ±16dB shelving at 10kHz, 12kHz, 16kHz, 20kHz or 24kHz.
  • Low-Shelf: ±16dB shelving at 35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz & 220Hz
  • Center Bell EQ: ±12dB or ±18dB with peak frequency at selectable 160Hz, 270Hz, 360Hz, 510Hz, 700Hz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz, 7.2kHz, 8.2kHz or 10kHz

Hybrid of the giants

The BAE Audio 1028 is a high-quality preamp with EQ section, modeled after the legendary Neve 1084. Equipped with the same preamp circuitry as the Neve 1073 and the same high-cut filter as the 1084, the 1028 is the ultimate preamp replica for sound fetishists.

Like the original, but with little extras....

Each unit is hand-wired and uses the original Carnhill transformers, which are also responsible for the distinctive sound of the original. For even greater flexibility, the EQ section on the 1028 has also been expanded in the mid and treble bands. The shelf bands now overlap with the mid bark EQ, creating a wide variety of sound shaping possibilities and diverse filter curves.

Everything a preamp needs

To meet various studio requirements, phase rotation and 48V phantom power are also switchable. In addition, the front-panel jack line input can be switched to Hi-Z mode to record various instruments directly at the preamp. To accommodate different types of microphones, the input impedance can be switched from 1200 ohms to 300 ohms, which in most cases results in a center-heavy recording sound.
