DIYRE CP5 Colour Mic Preamp Kit

The CP5 is the first microphone preamp to feature Colour. On its own, the CP5 is a reference-quality, 500-series mic preamp with copious amounts of clean gain. With Colour, the CP5 is the most tonally versatile preamp in the world.

World Class Preamp. The CP5 is a transparent, low-noise preamp based on the “clean wire with gain” school of design. The preamp’s signal path features only best-in-class components, including WIMA capacitors and THAT Corp. ICs. Preamp gain and Colour are adjustable via stepped controls for easy recall and stereo operation.

Add Some Colour. Plug any Colour module into the CP5 to add some character to your preamp. Dial in the exact amount of Colour you want with the stepped Colour control. Switch between tone and transparency with the Colour bypass switch. The CP5’s preamp works with or without a Colour installed.

Beginner Friendly. Like all our kits, the CP5 comes with every part required and step-by-step picture instructions.

DIYRE Colour 500-Series Palette mkII Kit

Add three stages of real analog color to your setup in a single 500-series slot.

Revamped Controls. Dial in exactly the signal path you want with individual drive/trim knobs and bypass switches for each Colour. 21-position stepped controls make stereo matching and recall easy.

Still Radically Affordable. Despite featuring new controls, an upgraded signal path, and aluminum knobs (formerly a premium upgrade), the Palette mkII still comes in at an unbelievable price point.

Even DIY Friendlier. The Palette mkII is our most carefully thought out and documented kit yet. Over the last few years, we’ve seen seen every possible snag a DIY project can hit, and built every way we can think of to prevent those snags into this kit.
