Rupert Neve Designs Shelford Channel

We do voiceovers. Built my first home studio in 1989. Since then I've been chasing tone. Been close to the goal on a few occasions and been through loads extremely high end mics and pre's, compressors and EQ's. Been close to my dream but never a cigar.

Enter Shelford.

From the very first moment I used the Shelford with a Klaus Heyne U87, then I knew it was time to call off the search.

Honestly, you'd struggle to make this thing sound bad. Tweak the EQ or compression and it's just different shades of wonderful.

The sound is deep, opulent, smooth and expensive. High end like honey, bass like thunder and crystal clear mids. It's almost insane how magical this box is. You feel it when you're tracking, you grin on playback and you beam on mix down.

Some pre-amps seem to fight you. A Neve Shelford channel does the opposite. You just know it when you hear it. Truly sublime tone.

Yes, it's that good. And worth every single penny. Desert island piece. Done, dusted. Move on.
