Enter to Win a B1D Mic Preamp from BURL AUDIO!
Based on the API 500 series form factor, built with the proprietary BX3 input transformer, and designed to compliment the rich tone of the acclaimed Mothership and B2 Bomber ADCs, the B1 series of mic pres deliver warmth with depth and clarity.
An all discrete class-A, direct coupled, capacitor-free circuit path gives both versions of the B1 amazing punch on drums, beautiful tonality on guitars, and warmth with presence on vocals. The B1D is the same as the regular B1 except that it has an all iron BX4 output transformer giving it a more terrifying rock tone.
The B1D come complete with both Gain and Level controls. If you want that heavy, 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.
This is a pre that is built to get the best out of any microphone, whether it be dynamic, condenser or ribbon. For ribbon mics and other low impedance sources, the B1D has a transformer coupled impedance select, and it was rigorously tested with the popular Royer R-121 in the low impedance setting.
Use the B1D’s 1/4” instrument/line input on the front panel, plug in, crank up the gain and go. The PAD switch allows for hot signals and balanced line inputs through the mic XLR on the back panel. Run your tracks or mixes through the B1D for warmth and glue.
This is a preamp that was designed to rock. Run multiple channels for your rhythm tracks and you are there. Replace EQ and compression with true analog PHAT. Run your primary tracks through the B1D mic pre, follow it with a B2 Bomber ADC, and that’s about all you will need.
