PRE-BX 500-Series Preamp
The Pre BX is an all analogue Class A/B microphone preamplifier with character and versatility at the forefront of its design ethos. It features transformer-balanced high-gain mic/instrument I/O, integrated BAX EQ for subtle sculpting of tones, and a clean, intuitive interface for ease of operation.
Sculpt Your Sound
Uniquely, The PRE-BX employs an integrated Baxandall EQ with both high-end and low-ends controls independently adjustable via the dual-concentric pot. Whether adding remarkably natural-sounding top-end sparkle to acoustic instruments or darkening harsher sounding program material it is perfect for honing the perfect tone at the source. A 1:1/3:1 output attenuator switch allows the Carnhill Transformer to be driven for added character and saturation on bass-heavy material, alongside controls for phase switching, Mic/Hi-Z front input selector and +48v Phantom power for condenser microphones.

"The Dirty C is arguably the best-sounding chorus that I’ve heard; the effect always becomes a part of the sound rather than seeming to have been ‘stuck on’ to the source"
