July 6 2020 Update: We are out of output transformers for this kit. We hope to have more in the next 2 weeks.
Everything you need to build the Lola Mic Pre by Hairball Audio.
Designed to fill the gap between HiFi and colored, the Lola is truly the best of both worlds. Clean and open while adding a thick richness, it’s unlike anything else in your rack.
You have a choice between two op-amp topologies, the Jensen 990 and the Eisen Audio BA512. Though not drastically different and typically only detectable on loud or driven source material, they each have their own strengths. Select the 990 for clear and fast high-end detail. Select the BA512 for a smoother top and better drive capability.
Our Jensen 990 is offered in DIY format or assembled. We also offer fully assembled John Hardy 990’s and Esien Audio BA512's.
We believe the Lola will become your go-to mic pre.
We got your back! We offer flat rate repair on all of our DIY builds if you get stuck.
