Step Back– Right here come the B1and B1D …Introducing the B1 and B1D Mic Pre Amps from Burl Audio. Based upon the API 500 collection type part, the B1 was produced to compliment the B2 Bomber ADC, and give you multi-channel pleasure. With the proprietary BX3 input transformer and BX2 output transformer, the B1 Mic Pre delivers warmth with depth and quality. The B1D is the same as the B1 other than that it has an all iron BX4 output transformer supplying it a more horrifying rock tone. An all discrete transistor, class-A, direct paired, capacitor cost-free circuit road, supplies the B1amazing punch on drums, lovely tonality on guitars, and warmth with presence on vocals.
The B1 and B1D come full with both Gain and Level controls. If you prefer that large, gainy tone, crank up the stepped gain control and offset that with the level control. If clean tone is your thing, turn the gain down and crank up the level. For ribbon mics and additional affordable impedance sources, the B1 has a transformer combined impedance pick. The B1 was carefully tested with the popular Royer R-121 in the lowered impedance setting, and we think it appears very f *** ing bitchin” on guitar amps. The B1 gets the very best from any sort of mic, whether it be lively, condenser or bow.
Usage the B1’s 1/4″ instrument/line input on the front panel, plug in, crank up the gain and go. The PAD switch allows hot signals and well balanced line inputs with the mic XLR on the back panel. Run your tracks or mixes with the B1 for warmth and glue. The B1 was created to rock. Run many B1 channels for your tempo tracks and you are there. Change EQ and compression with true analog PHAT. Run your primary tracks with the B1 mic pre, follow with a B2 Bomber ADC and that’s about all you will certainly need.
