Bill Putnam Sr, founder of Universal Audio, first introduced the 610 Modular Amplifier preamp in 1958. The 610 is famous among record producers for its harmonic detail, clipping characteristics, and ability to overdrive in a warm, musical fashion.
You might not know the model number of the 610, but you would recognize its signature sound: from the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds to Johnny Cash’s landmark At Folsom Prison album. Its modern counterpart, the 610-B, has more recently helped create classics by Adele and Cold War Kids.
