Preamplifier KARLIK model TP-1 pure tube. The KARLIK TP-1 is a high quality Class A two-channel tube preamplifier. The preamp is completely hand made with great care.
It is a 19 inch 2 unit rack mounted unit. The power supply is located externally from the TP-1. This design has proven to be the best solution to eliminate background noise. It blends two stages of vacuum tubes and input and output transformers.
The unit accepts microphone, line and hi-impedance input signals, such as electric guitars and basses. The only active components used in the signal path are tubes. It means no transistors, no integrated circuits.
The preamplifier provides warm vacuum tube sounds with an extremely large frequency response, great dynamics, very low noise level and fast transient attack response. TP-1 as being a tube preamp is harmonically rich.
That is why the TP-1 is suitable for working with the digital domain as well. In addition to all these technical qualities, the TP-1 has a robust consistent build quality and a user friendly interface.
Only vaccum tubes in signal path. + 4 dB balanced and unbalanced outputs. Continuously variable output level control.
Depending how "hot" you are going. This process is managed from crystal clean to harmonic warm. Separated power supply for absolutely no. Hand made with great care. You ll get phantom power +48 volts for condenser microphones when switched up.You ll get low frequency filter shelving type when switched up. Frequency 75 Hz attenuation -10 dB. You ll get 20 dB of input attenuation when switched up.
Switching between line input on front panel and XLR microphone input on rear panel. You ll get 180 degree phase shift of the audio signal when switched up. 1/4 jack on front panel. When the LINE/MIC switch is in LINE position this input accepts hi-impedance instruments such as electroacoustic guitar, basses keyboards etc.
This is a direct input into the preamp tube, bypassing the input transformer. When the LINE/MIC switch is in MIC position you are using rear XLR mic input. Variable resistor controls output volume for microphone input as well as for line input. +4 dBU corresponds to 0 VU. When a red color appears on your meter, your input tube is overloaded.
Female XLR for microphone signal in Male XLR for pro level +4 dB balanced signal out/pin 2 is hot 14 stereo jack for balanced/unbalanced output. + 4 dBU corresponds to 0 VU. The output is transformer balanced.The recommended output load is more than 600 Ohm min. Maximum output is +20 dB (8V). Unbalanced output is available too.
The mic input is transformer balanced. Input impedance is 2.5 kOhm. Sensitivity 1,5 mV for output 0 VU. Recommended source (mic) impedance is 200 ohm. The line input is unbalanced.Input impedance is 220 kOhm. Sensitivity is 30 mV for output 0 VU. Input 10 Hz 80 kHz, output loaded 10 kOhm.
Line input 10 Hz 90 kHz, output loaded 10 kOhm. Signal/noise ratio less than 85 dBu at unity gain from 10 Hz 80 kHz. THD less than0,05%at 0VUfrom16Hz80kHz.
PAD -20 dB attenuation over full bandwidth LF CUT -10 dB from 75Hz, shelve type filter, 12 dB/oct. PHANTOM +48 V on input XLR. PHASE switch when switched down the same phase from input to output when switched up the opposite phase from input to output.Power consumption 20 Watts, 230 V/50 60 Hz. The power supply is located in another box, separately from the preamp, to attain the best quality of noise ratio and lower distortion. Panel size standard 19 by 3,5 (two units of rack space). Weight 3,1 kg preamplifier Karlik TP-1 2,2 kg power supply.
