Two different and discrepant mic preamps in one box for two different colours.
  • Description
  • Features

Two different and discrepant mic preamps in one box for two different colours. By popular demand, one channel is the exact same micpre as in our SLAM! with tubes and transformers. The second preamp is a fresh “No Tubes” design from Hutch and is inspired by old British console preamps with a tasty combination of “No Tubes” design with transformers. This one is not a clone of anything preexisting. It is a new flavor but reminiscent of that classic discrete sound. Both channels are designed around the basic goal of “just plug a mic in and it sounds great.” The tube channel excels on traditionally difficult sources like some bright guitars, reed and brass, cymbals and some vocals. The “No Tubes” channel might be more suited for smoother vocals, drums, bass and raunchy guitars, but you never really knows which preamp is best for the job at hand until you try them. You’ll have two qualified candidates in one handy 1U chassis.

Two different and discrepant mic preamps in one box for two different colours. By popular demand, one channel is the exact same micpre as in our SLAM! with tubes and transformers.

You’ll have two qualified candidates in one handy 1U chassis.

Of course, all the usual front panel features: phantom power, phase switch, HP filters, LED overload and level indicators, and instrument inputs are there. Phantom is soft-switched and shunt regulated for lowest noise. (There are 6 low noise shunt regulators, and 5 standard regulators in the solid-state side). The High Pass Filter is a new approach, but suffice it to say that with it bypassed, the preamp is designed to have almost DC response (.01Hz) at all gain settings. The LED meter is set up to indicate first and second stage clipping, even though the output is capable of greater than +30 dBu (70 volts peak to peak into 50 Ohms from the solid-state side actually!). While we are tossing out numbers, both the current mode and voltage mode preamps sport EIN numbers of 130dB, very close to the theoretical minimum noise possible.
