Description

TB12 – Tone and Gain for Days

Talk to most any top engineer, and they will tell you a preamp is one of the most important links in your signal chain. This explains why these same engineers have a huge range of vintage and modern preamps to choose from depending on what sound they’re looking for.

Clean, Dirty, Nickel or Steel

Assuming you don’t have a collection of vintage preamps, the TB12 offers a wide range of colors to make up to it. Use the flexible transformer section from CineMag, a discrete opamp, and a variable capacitor control to dial in the perfect tone for any source. Push the signal hard to hear the difference in tone between Steel and 50% Nickel transformers and more!

Any Source, Any Signal

Whether you’re looking for heaps of gain to amplify quiet ribbon mic, DI bass or guitars, or insert external effects, the TB12 has got you covered. Add on the -20dB pad, polarity switch, and a high-pass filter, and the TB12 proves to be a fully featured tone shaping monster!
