Who else is using ADM 780 preamps?

Who else is using ADM 780 preamps?

I currently have 4 channels of them (2 phantom powered), and I have to say, I am very happy with them. Basically, they are torn out of an old broadcasting board from the 70's. I'm told that the ADM used to make parts for API at one time (out of somewhere in Michigan).

I will have to get some pictures up here to show you mine soon, but I'm just curious: who else is using these guys?

I ran a p-bass into one the other night, and I was pretty shocked at the balance of the bass guitar. Another friend of mine tells me that they sound a lot like API 512's (which, I currently am waiting on a lunchbox for, so soon, I'll be comparing them).

So hit up, boys and girls. Who's got these? What do you use them on?

I now have a rack of two 780 pre's and two 1540 eq's. I didn't get a chance to use them yet but I will. Mine are old black face models from a 70's They are from a console from the local TV station. I did try them with and without the output tranny and the tranny didn't seem to ad anything in terms of transformer warmth or glue so I left them off.

I am about to sell a bunch more of the 780 mic pre's. I have at least a dozen left to sell and I have some output trannys to sell as well.

I have one eq left to sell .They have inductors in them,are 4 band and sound pretty nice.
