SAN CLEMENTE, CA - Welcome to the Avalon Times. This is Avalon’s
first newsletter bringing together local and world talent to share
information and technology on recording and music making. In talking
with Avalon customers every day, I thought it would be informative
to present how others are creatively using Avalon equipment and
to discuss frequently asked questions. I hope you find the Avalon
Times entertaining and educational. If you have any comments or
suggestions please send me an email or fax. In the meantime, enjoy
life and remember: “Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution!”

The new AD2022 Pure Class A Dual Mono Microphone Preamplifier
has now been reviewed by four industry magazines. Two reviewers
purchased the unit and said that it is the best mic pre that they
have ever heard and couldn’t live without it. Another reviewer
loaned it to a leading mix engineer for feedback who used it on
the entire project and begged to keep it... Check out the reviews
on our website: www.avalondesign.com.

“The AD2022 is the most powerful preamp I have ever used.
I use it on everything: Mics, keyboards, sound modules, synths,
guitars and bass. I have never heard a bass sound so controlled
and big... Amazing!”
“I'm rediscovering my mic collection with the AD2022! The
impedance selection is extremely effective!”

“I first listened to the F... and I didn’t like that
at all. I then listened to the Vt-737sp and it sounded much better.
Really a great sound. Then I listened to the AD2022 and it blew
me away. I had to buy it.” - Mark S., CA
the input impedance on the AD2022 for recording electric guitars
(SM57 mic) gave me a low mid-range presence that was unbelievable!

“For years I have been using an M5 exclusivly for vocals.
Half way through a session with Alanis we replaced the M5 with
an AD2022. Alanis immediately noticed a difference in her headphones.
The AD2022 sounded bigger and better (which I thought was not
possible). The AD2022 just replaced my M5 as the best mic pre
I have ever heard.” Rob J., CA
