The Behringer 1273 is a pair of iconic Neve 1073 mic preamps with the familiar 3-band EQ, ready to become the front end of your home studio.


They’re at it again, and because we’ve just seen the Behringer 369 released recently, we’re eager to see what’s next! It looks as if Behringer has expanded its focus into the realm of vintage analogue recording equipment.

The desert island preamp for many top studio engineers, the Neve 1073 has a rich heritage in recorded music since its introduction in the early 1970s. As one of the most cloned pieces of gear ever built, we’re itching to see how Behringer’s new dual-mono version shapes up.

More Information

It’s important to note that Behringer is not just a synth manufacturer. With Midas and Klark Teknik under the same Music Tribe umbrella, we can surely expect more studio classics reborn in the near future.

According to Behringer, the 1273 provides up to 80 dB of gain which is controlled with its stepped potentiometer. Meanwhile, the tone switch adjusts the impedance of the Midas transformer to optimize the gain for dynamic or ribbon mics.


In addition, the 3-band EQ has selectable low-shelf bands (35, 60, 110, and 220 Hz), midrange bands (360, 700, 1600, 3200, 4800, and 7200 Hz), and high-shelf bands (10, 12, and 16 kHz). Furthermore, there’s a high-pass filter with selectable frequency bands (50, 80, 160, and 300 Hz).

The 1273 is versatile, as the EQ section can be bypassed, and the insert path allows you to bring other EQs or compressors into your signal chain for tracking.

Pricing and availability:

The 1273 is currently available for pre-order from Thomann, shipping in the coming months.

    Any gear designed by Rupert Neve is incredible. I’m sure Behringer will create a faithful reproduction. I own a lot of Behringer synths and drum machines and I’m very happy with them.
