This is for the Creamer+, which also has high impedance instrument inputs, in addition to the Creamer's regular amazing features. How is Creamer different from the rest of the pack? Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it has a very pleasing pentode coloration while retaining transparency until now achieved only with meticulously designed solid state preamps.
The advanced hybrid design enables a switchable solid state or transformer output for two distinctively different characters. When you add a choice of pentode or triode tube mode, there are in fact 4 preamp sounds in it. Unlike some highly popular pro-audio gear manufacturers who use cheap Chinese transformers, we use only the highest quality Cinemag types on both input and output. The bottom line: Creamer will love everything you throw at it: vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, percussion, acoustic instruments, etc. Same as the Creamer but with an added line input with a separate 1:1 transformer on each input.Great for inserting into the mix buss or individual tracks for tonal coloration! The Line gain is the same as that of the instrument input, except that it is transformer balanced. A switchable two position high and low frequency boost can be handy when tracking to add air or fatness to the signal.
It utilizes the tube gain stage, without adding another one. The idea is to keep the circuit simple, to preserve detail and transients. The intensity of the boost can be adjusted with 2 trim-pots. The use of inductors yields a very musical sound. Design concept: (tube) pentode hybrid preamp, transformer input and output 2 tube modes: triode and pentode 2 channels Switchable input impedance (for mic input only): 900Ohm, 10kOhm, 2.4kOhm Instrument (DI) input impedance: 2.2MOhm Output mode: Transformer or solid state balanced driver Frequency response: 10Hz-50kHz +/- 3dB Maximum gain: 74dB Harmonic distortion: <2% before clipping level, quickly decreases if driven less.
