Bbc am7/11 am7/13

Hi, I'm a long time lurker - just registered - I was wondering if anyone else out there uses genuine am7/11 or 13 BBC line pre-amps?

We were lucky enough to get hold of 8 high gain and 12 low gain line pre-amps from the demolition of BBC Mancheater on Oxford road last year. We've been running the high gain pres mic pres through a focusrite and been getting great results.

I was interested if anyone else has any experience with them? The only ones I've seen advertised online dont look legit so I'm intrigued how rare there are and if anyone on here with more experience has used them?

I also have some BBC AM7/13 modules i want to get modded for mic pre use.

Does anyone have any info/circuits to add full control of the gain?

Used to have a pair of the pres racked up. They sounded very sweet indeed, but were also a bit noisy so I ended up selling them. Maybe I should have just overhauled them as it was likely only them being out of spec.

There would be a fair few of them around as they were almost 'obligatory' for many studio setups to provide a BUFFERED signal to feed other areas such that if the signal got shorted or corrupted elsewhere it would not mess up the studio signal.
They may not be the highest od quality as they were in the chain for FM radio broadcast (good enough for that) but not 'state of the art'.
