Preamp with two independent channels, each embeds a 12AX7.

Connector: 2 input jack per channel, per channel output jack and an output jack that mixes both channels.

Tonestack "basic" type fender: bass, mid, treble and a bright switch.

Simple and effective, DI output would be nice, however.

UTILIZATION

No need for manual, one branch with all knobs at noon and it sounds right now!

The original model can also send the output of a channel in the entrance of the second to have a big greasy distortion. Not try at home, I mounted a canal.

SOUNDS

The sound is very respectful of the low, round and warm, it gives a feeling of fluidity, the "liquid". The highs are particularly beautiful.

on the other hand do not look too modern or its type, does not carry preamp effect and does not sound triturated!
Small saturation can gain by pushing the bottom, with a beginning of compression and it's still very musical.

My model is homemade, constructed from the original scheme, which is a Fender ressuscée a scheme elsewhere. I just replaced by a model tonestack Baxandall, and turned the knob and switch mid bright. It works the thunder!

OVERALL OPINION

This is my favorite preamp, it is simple, reliable and musical and well worth a pre Ampeg for 10x cheaper.

In making his report I found DIY q / p unbeatable since the cost is minimal components for a great result.

I do not know the dimension of the model plant but it does not look far since this model is not well known. He thus escapes the fashion of the vintage and the prices that go with it.
