Traverse Analogue 652

Traverse Analogue 652 stereo vacuum tube preamplifier with mic/line-level inputs

Using the GAIN control, the engineer can achieve 5 - 60 dB of gain from the uniquely-biased tube input stage, followed by a MASTER attenuation control in the output buffer stage. Want a clean yet musical replication of the source? How about the creamy saturation of an esoteric vintage preamplifier?

The 652's gentle drive characteristics allows for a broad tonal palette depending on how hard you hit it with signal. It is designed to interface with all types of microphones (including ribbons), and the line-level input pad allows you to add analogue warmth to any track from a digital audio workstation; making it an indispensable tool for adding colouration and harmonic distortion!

Two flavours, one box, all discrete, and proudly hand-crafted in Canada.

Chandler Limited REDD 47 - Tube PreAmp
Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 microphone pre-amplifier is a recreation of the original valve line amplifiers used in Abbey Road Studios’ heralded and rare EMI REDD.51 recording consoles circa 1959-1968.

Designed as a central component to the EMI REDD.51 recording console, the original REDD.47 line amplifier was used to amplify virtually every stage of the audio path (mic inputs, line inputs, echo sends and monitors).
The REDD.47 lent its unmistakably punchy, aggressive character to music recorded at Abbey Road Studios between 1964 and 1968, including many tracks by The Beatles.

The Chandler Limited REDD.47 pre-amp offers many additional benefits to the original design including increased gain, allowing a range of tonal options from pristine clean sound to classic rich, saturated tone with up to 2% harmonic distortion before clipping. The Chandler Limited REDD.47 pre-amp easily reproduces the distortions heard on The Beatles’ ‘Revolution.’

Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 tube microphone pre-amplifier delivers the legendary sound of Abbey Road Studios’ ‘Holy Grail’ pre-amp, with extra features to meet today’s recording studio standards.

THE SOUND OF THE ORIGINAL V72 MODULES
Inspired by the V72 modules originally built for the German Radio Network, the WT-72 offers 56 dB of gain, which can be driven by a microphone or line level source. The vintage modules only offered 34 dB of gain, so an additional 22 dB of gain is made in the WT-72 with small adjustments to the circuit while maintaining the most sought after tone and character we have all come to love.

Custom input and output transformers, as well as output plate choke help provide the performance and character of its vintage inspiration!

Purple Audio PANTS is a four op-amp, differential mic preamp. Designed to work in standard “500″ racks.

The Pants uses a unique dual-bobbin input transformer from Cinemag unlike any other. The smooth Gain control helps you dial in the sound you want. If the output level is too high, you can ride the level down with the separate Level control. Pressing the “High” switch changes the feedback network to provide an insane 78dB of clean gain, a great match for very low output mics.

With different Gain, High mode switch, and Level settings the Pants can produce many different tones with the same amount of output level. The front panel DI goes through a FET buffer into the input transformer, adding an extra dimension to the sound of the preamp.

So, as a breath of fresh air, we present the Elixir preamp module that stands apart from that crowd. By using our own True Class A amplifiers and Swedish Lundahl output transformers, we've produced a warm sweet liquid sound quality that is unique and a useful compliment in your rack to other "harder" sounding 500 Series preamps.The Buzz Audio Elixir has a fast transient response so it is ideal for stringed instruments and percussion - a superb choice for snare drum and acoustic guitars. And as with all our preamps the noise level is as low as possible and there is plenty of gain for ribbon microphones. The instrument jack input has a very special "bootstrap" amplifier design and really does sound huge on bass guitar.

BUZZ AUDIO MA-2.2BTX - Full Class A Microphone pre-amplifier with Lundahl LL1517 output transformers
A truly magical sounding microphone preamplifier that proves "clean does not need to sound clinical", now revamped with an updated user interface.

Functions are now controlled with illuminated push button switches with "clickless" operation, no more thumps on the output.
The gain pot has been replaced with a calibrated 24 position Elma switch for accurate stereo matching between channels. Buzz Audio has added a useful 19 segment peak output level meter. But, the original audio and power supply design of the MA-2.2 has been retained.

The MA-2.2BTX is supplied with high spec Lundahl LL1517 output transformers. When the transformers are fitted, the direct unbalanced output is still available on the rear panel via a 1/4" jack socket. When fitted, the transformer add a bit more warmth to the sound. (We can also offer the Lundahl amorphous core LL1684 transformer to special order).

GC Audio – Gyraf Audio GY 4.5 Inherit Cartridge
GC Audio is proud to introduce a new preamp that extends the GC Audio cartridges family - based on a, now classic, design by Jakob Erland, founder of Gyraf Audio and designer of many high-end studio gears like the G9 preamplifier or the G22 compressor.

Jakob Erland is universally recognized as one of the leading experts in tube hardware design. He is also very popular in the DIY community where he provides free help. The GY 4.5 Inherit cartridge is, as its name implies, a single channel of the famous Gyraf Audio Gyratec 9 preamp. Faithful to the original in every detail.

GC Audio GY 4.5 is a genuine tube preamplifier: Coming with two ECC82 running on high voltage, no solidstate component in the signal path, input/output balanced by high-end Lundahl transformers. The goal with this design is to achieve everything from a completely clean to a possibly very colorful sound imprint. All under the total control of the user. The most important aspect of this circuit is its very slow transition to overload - it has a sweet spot that seems to last for ages.

We recommend it e.g. for vocals, where by raising gain and lowering output volume, you can get a nice dense analog saturation without overloading your converters. This cartridge is a real creative tool.

The proprietary Inherit format keeps the sensitive part of the electronic design in a one-piece machined cartridge that acts as a Faraday cage to offer optimal electromagnetic shielding performance.

Chandler Limited Little Devil Preamp
The Little Devil Pre Amp might be the best piece of Chandler gear yet! Several things make it so special.

The class A gain stage sounds like no other design we've done. It's big, yet open and full of life. Just about any parameter of the sound is changeable including the ability to change both the Feedback and Bias of the amplifier. The Feedback control increases harmonics thousands of times over the range of the control. The nature of clipping and distortion also changes and ranges from soft Class A clipping to super soft gushy tube type. The sounds range from a very colored and "overbiased" tone to a gently colored and "in your face" tone.

McAudiolab 8P -  Class-A solid-state 8 Channel Preamp and DI
The goal was to build a new mic preamplifier that exhibited the qualities of Class A range. Packing eight preamps into one chassis with one power supply. You won’t find any cut corners here, each channel uses Macaudiolab's super well-sounding 816 Class A discrete Op-Amp, as gain stage. The mic inputs benefits from the sound of the legendary Lundahl transformer which exhibits an incredible frequency response whilst adding a subtle amount of harmonic distortion. The excellent sound produced by this combination has been well proven in McAudiolab's 500 Series products. No matter what you feed it with. Another advantage of the transformer coupled input, is noise – or lack of it. Transients are preserved and the bottom-end sounds full, making the 8P the perfect choice for all music genres.
