Super versatile

A Class A tube stage and another fet. With the optional digital converter is a very convenient.

UTILIZATION

The manual is very clear, it is best to consult because it has lots of little practical tips for connections. Otherwise, all is so easy to use.

SOUND QUALITY

Great sound for vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, and more with the ability to mix the two floors it is possible to have a huge variety of sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it regularly for 7 years, the value for money is ok

Hybrid transistor preamp / lamps. I have the version with Lundahl transformer.

Connectors XLR analog in and out, analog output jack 6.35, entree line / Hi-Z jack 6.35 6.35 Input jack Ad
A high pass filter available on the front, and a selector imdépendance (10k/200) and the limiter is very effective for its decision.

Small size which saves space,
Building very robust anyway.

UTILIZATION

Configuration generally quite simple, everything is understandable on the device so no problem.
Manual German and English, but it seems to be in French just go on the net it is present in PDF but not good there is not really need the manual

UTILIZATION

Manual German and English, but it seems to be in French just go on the net it is present in PDF but not good there is not really need the manual

For settings, it is quite easy to configure in the style qe registration is sought.

SOUND QUALITY

I only made vocal with GS1. The sound is reproduced very accurately, musically, and provides enough sweetness on the treble. I compared with my fireface preamps and UCX is largely above. The sound is more detailed, more linear, more especially full and becomes easier to mix. The sound is natural, clean the tube gain and gain the sound remains transparent transients.
I tried with a microphone input range MXL and I had very good results so imagine with Neumann U87 type / tlm 193 or a Rode Classic 2 ...

OVERALL OPINION

I have the GS1 since April 2012.
The only model I tried was a behringer MIC800 so well on the day and night.
What I like most:
- Sound quality
- Pass transistor has the lamp or mix 2
- Its small size (when you see it, you say how much quality can come out of this thing!)

For now no less ...

In sum, the high-end gear very good for its price, I even saw some studio (movies or music) was also used so it is a good index.

I would do this choice surely, after if I have a bigger budget surely I will fall on the Avalon (2 see also 3 times the price).

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 weeks. At the same time I chose a microphone, among a RODE NTK, a Studio Projects C1 and a RODE NT1000. Although the NTK c'tait I prfrais without prampli, with the proper rglage the SPL, the NT1000 who won it are a little dry in natural, GAINSTATION ncessaire gives corpulence.

Prampli lamps and solid states.
The object is classy and great finish.

UTILIZATION

Super simple. There's has to play with 3 buttons Clean, Tube and Output to really shape the sound as you want!
The rev limit is effective without being noticed.
The manual (in English) is fucked and gives tips for rglages for various instruments.

SOUND QUALITY

I did some tests on voice and acoustic guitar with a microphone Oktava MKL 2500 and it's really gnial.
Retailer prcis everything is clear and search. breathing, Arian is ample and clear.
The sound is smooth and powerful on both the voice, super prcis on acoustic guitar (I do not recognize her !!!!!).

In the manual, it says that in many cases, compression is unnecessary. Looks like it's true!

OVERALL OPINION

I lay for 1 week. So a review "hot" days that I will in a few months if necessary.
I also have a Blue Tube (which I also find trs well considering its price) and frankly, it's night and day.
But is it comparable?
Sr it is four times more expensive than Blue Tube but the sound is 100 times better I think! Then
I lit out a second time to make the decision stro!
