WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

USER REVIEWS

"I can't say enough good things about this preamp. It's become my favorite. @pauaudio you guys rule! Best pre for electric guitars and bass. Has the focus and forwardness of an API but with a nice smooth low end. Clean gain for days."

-Stu McKillop - Rain City Recorders, Vancouver

"Thank you again, the 805 sounds great, looks great, feels great - presently being used on Lauryn Hill recordings...Troy Germano."

-Troy Germano - Germano Studios, New York

"805 wins again. Better than the API's and BAE1272. Everyone in the band agreed hands down."

-Kris Crummett - Interlace Audio, Portland

"It works great everytime on bass. We like it, and we're going to keep it!"

-David Bendeth - House of Loud, New Jersey

    "I really enjoyed the PAU preamp. The transient detail was extremely fast and smooth. I used them on Drum Overheads and Lead Guitar. The end result was a nice pleasing clear tone that sat well yet poked out just enough in the dense mix without much treatment. The demo process was pain free and PAU was rad to work with."
