New FLICKINGER TwinFlicks Dual-Opamp 72 dB Mic Preamp Cloned from 1972 Console
Flickinger Twin Flicks Dual Channel, Dual Op-Ap 72 dB Preamp. Originally we racked up a bunch of vintage 56 dB Flickinger channel cards from the 1972 Ray Stevens' 32-Channel, Nashville Sound Lab console. So we have now meticulously reproduced the 1972 console's original 52 dB Flickinger 736-2 channel cards, 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, giving 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 with 3 transformers per channel: a custom-designed input transformer, an interstage transformer, and the output transformer. We have retained the +/- 24V power rails of the original design for lots of headroom, and also the input transformer's 150-Ohm impedance, and added a high/low impedance button allowing for a tonal change when switching to the 600 Ohm setting. Lastly, we added a 4-mode metering system to help you better control levels. Flickingers TwinFlicks has that great vintage American studio console character and tone that imparts a creaminess and heft to your tracks.
The low end is full and powerful, and the +/-24V design gives you ample headroom. Closely adhering to the 1972 vintage 736-2 Flickinger channel card and 535-7 OpAmp design -- including using the identical NOS resistors -- these preamps still sound magnificent today -- and are one of very few built to the vintage 150-Ohm / 24V spec, which is where a lot of the Flickinger magic comes from.
