Avalon U5

Discussion in 'Live Sound [BG]' started by waylon79, Sep 5, 2008.

  1. I've been using the Avlaon U5 D.I. at my church for the past 5-6 months and I LOVE IT!!!! Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with one of these?:smug:
  2. I bought one recently. Can't wait to get into the studio with it. I'm really enjoying it. Definitely a very high quality piece of equipment.
  3. man...it's the main part of my rig. I go bass>avalon>crown macrotech>cab...
    it's the best sounding pre I've come across.

    curious what kinda basses you are running into the Avalon, espcially you guys using live....are you running an active bass w/ preamp?

    I've had 2 and want one again. Great piece of gear. Makes anything sound better.

    When I first got mine, I ran my bass through it straight to a Mackie SR 1530 PA cab, just for kicks. It sounded bitchen. Superb piece of kit.

    Wow, I just posted about the u5 in another thread. So far I love mine! I have my bass running into the u5 then to a distressor and out to house. I am now using my own cab just for support on stage. It has really cleaned up the bass sound I think. I'm new at the whole thing so I'm trying to get a great warm sound.

    Hey Guys & Gals,

    Does anyone have a copy of the U5 manual that they could email to me? I just bought one used without a manual and I can only find the spec sheet online.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    I used the U5 with an Urei La4 compressor

    My dream rig is Avalon u5 ---> Urei La4 ----> Acoustic image focus Sa ---> Accugroove El Whappo
