Part of a colorful line
The A Designs "EM Series" is a twist on their popular Pacifica-based P-1 module. Each color (Silver, Blue, Red, and Gold) has its own sound, which is accomplished by using different custom wound output and input transformers. This gives you a large palette of preamp "coloration" to add to the sound of your favorite microphones or instruments.

Up-front tone
The EM-Red has a custom wound input and output transformers which will translate into a more "upfront" sound than the P-1, EM-Silver, and EM-Blue. The EM-Red is a great fit for drums, especially rack and floor toms.
