  • Product Description

    The Purple Audio Pants uses a unique dual-bobbin input transformer from Cinemag unlike any other. The smooth Gain control helps you dial in the sound you want. If the output level is too high, you can ride the level down with the separate Level control. Pressing the "High" switch changes the feedback network to provide an insane 78dB of clean gain, a great match for very low output mics.

    With different Gain, High mode switch, and Level settings the Pants can produce many different tones with the same amount of output level. The front panel DI goes through a FET buffer into the input transformer, adding an extra dimension to the sound of the preamp. The DI load switch gives you two options, making it even easier to get the best direct tone for your instrument. Two LEDs clearly indicate signal level for the gain and output stages at a glance, turning green to indicate signal present, yellow for 10dB below clipping, and red for clipping.

    For easy serviceability and tweaking, the Purple discrete op amps can be replaced with any standard discrete op amp or a DIP-8 IC. The Pants uses our custom output transformer which provides two isolated outputs (when supported by the chassis).
