Flickinger Twin Flicks Dual Channel, Dual Op-Ap 72 dB Preamp. FLICKINGER TwinFlicks Stereo Mic Preamp IN STOCK Dual OpAmp, 3-Transformer, 72 dB w/2-Gain Stages (+60 db on Gain, +12 dB on Fader) Based the 1972 Ray Stevens Nashville 36-Channel Console Up for consideration is a brand new Flickinger TwinFlicks -- a 72 dB dual-channel, dual-OpAmp mic preamp. Originally we racked up a bunch of vintage 56 dB Flickinger channels from the 1972 Ray Stevens' 32-Channel, Nashville Sound Lab console. So we have now reverse-engineered the 1972 console's 736-2 Flickinger channel cards, along with its prized 535-7 OpAmp, and added a few new features, the most notable is a fader knob -- powered by a second 535-7 opamp --which more closely resembles the signal path of the Flickinger console, now giving you a total of 72 dB of gain, while keeping the flexibility to drive the main gain stage harder by cutting back on the output fader.
We now have 2x 535-7 OpAmps per channel, along 3 transformers -- a custom-designed input transformer, an interstage transformer, and the output transformer. We have retained the +/- 24V power rails of the original design, and also the 150-Ohm input transformer impedance, and added a high/low impedance button allowing for a tonal change when switching to a higher impedance. Lastly, we added a 4-mode metering system to help you better control levels. Made in Austin, Texas, USA.
Flickingers's still have that great vintage American studio console character and tone that imparts a creaminess and heft to your tracks. The low end is full and bigly, and the +/-24V design gives you lots of headroom. Closely adhering to the 1972 vintage 736-2 Flickinger channel card and OpAmp design -- including using the identical NOS transistors -- these preamps still sound magnificent today -- and are one of few built to the vintage 150-Ohm / 24V spec, which is where a lot of the Flickinger magic comes from.
