First of all it’s my most favorite tube mic pre. And I own Vintage Neve 1073 and WSW 811403, V76 and many more of the top league. Check out various threads on gearslutz, web etc.
V72 module was developed between 1949 and 1952 as a microphone and main studio amplifier. It’s like the Mount Everest and pride of the highest level of German sound engineering. By 1955 it was the standard preamplifier in German radio stations.
When George Martin in 1967 started to use V72 and V76 for recording “Sgt. Pepper” (the Beatles) the world of sound industry could not ignore them anymore. After that, they became world standard mic preamps and main workhorses at Abbey Road, EMI and were heavily used by the Beatles, Pink Floyd and others.
Until now, V72 is considered the best tube mic preamps ever built.
Not a single modern company now is able to produce a tube mic preamp of the same high quality level and at such price.
V72 is a self contained amplifier with a fixed gain level of 34 dB. Nowadays the unit is used as a vintage tube mic preamp in recording studios all over the world.
There must be a reason why the V72 is one of the most sought after mic preamps today. The V72 sounds fat and colorful, but still very natural and "real". When compared with the V76 people often say the V72 sounds a little thicker and has more depth than the V76.
