Ultra low noise Class A JFet amplifier
3 db amplification (@ 1000 ohm load)
single ended amplifier topology
24-48 v phantom power
BigAmp is a small sized, high quality jfet instrument preamp which performs equally well on stage as it does in a studio environment. It has a 1/4" female trs input which accepts signals ranging from the pickup of an electric bass or (acoustic) guitar to the line level output of a synthesizer. BigAmp's low noise class A amplifier provides high end amplification and converts the instrument output signal from unbalanced to balanced.
BigAmp is an ideal companion for DAW recording. By recording a clean signal directly to disk you have the advantage of being able to sculpt the sound of your recorded track with your favourite plugins.
How it works
Stick BigAmp on a microphone cable, plug in your electric Guitar, Bass(or any other instrument with a 1/4" TRS Jack output) and switch on Phantom Power.
To achieve the best sonic result it is advised to use a short TRS/Jack cable between BigAmp and your instrument. BigAmp goes directly into a balanced input of your mixing desk, it can also be used as a frontend for your microphone-pre or channel strip in a (home)studio setup. BigAmp matches the high impedance unbalanced output of your guitar with the balanced low impedance input of a mixing desk/microphone-pre.
