David Peach started Peach Audio over 20 years ago and has been designing and hand-building audio gear from his home in Australia ever since. His dynamics, EQs, and tube mic pres, including the Savannah 196sx, have garnered an underground reputation for their incredible sounds and now we've brought Peach Audio on as an exclusive brand to Vintage King.
The Peach Audio Savannah 196sx is the third generation of David's tube mic pre and combines lighting-fast transient response with an ultra-wide dynamic range for class-leading detail and precision. Engineers will be able to take advantage of versatile controls for impedance, multiple transformer options, and mid/side processing capabilities, to craft their source's sound.
As we alluded to earlier, the Savannah 196sx offers two different output options that will give you completely different results. The XFMR transformer balanced output features all of the color and character of classic analog audio. Savannah's OTL transformerless unbalanced output provides a more neutral, clean tone.
Watch our video below to hear the Peach Audio Savannah 196sx Stereo Tube Preamp used during a session. This demo features George Montrelle (Vocals), Bryan Reilly (Drums, Bass, and Acoustic Guitar), and Dustin McLaughlin (Electric Guitar).
