Warm, Organic, and Chandler's Most Vintage Sounding Pre Amp Yet.


  • Gain/Germainium Drive: Standard input gain control, a 10-position Elma switch with 3dB step increments. The full range of the unit is -5dB, with the pad, to +65dB, without the pad and Germanium Drive and Feeback at full.
  • Feedback control: When feedback is at 0 the unit will produce more high frequency information, less THD, less gain, and generally a more pristine, clear tone. Pushing the feedback higher will add THD, gain, a small bass rise, and a small high-end roll-off
  • A 15dB Pad switch for when you are driving the Germanium very hard to keep the output levels in a usable range, or to drop the gain to a line level while sending tape/disk tracks or line sources into the transformer-balanced rear input
  • Thick switch: adds a gentle low end rise to the signal
  • An LED VU meter that functions in two ranges: from -12 to +3 and +5 to +20dB, selectable with the pushbutton to the left of the meter
  • DI/Unbalanced In: unbalanced input for guitar, bass, samples, etc
  • 48-volt switching phantom power
  • Phase: reverses the polarity of the pre-amp's output
  • Power Supply not included (sold separately)
