Gyraf Audio Gyratec IX Dual Tube Microphone Preamp

Dual tube microphone preamplifier
MFR# G9

Product Description

The Gyraf Audio Gyratec IX is a dual true tube microphone preamp - made like our mother did it.  It’s a simple, yet powerful unit, based on a variable-gain input tube stage driving a tube SRPP output stage. No silicon or other crap in signal path.

The controls on the G9 are as follows:

The input level switch - in eleven steps - sets the raw gain of the first stage, thus allowing you to control the input level, the “drive” for the preamp.

The output level pot attenuates signal to the output stage, allowing you to fine-trim the output level going to the next stage in your signal chain

The input switch is used to select either Line, Mic, or Mic-with-P48 as input for the unit.  If you insert a jack at the front panel socket marked “Inst.”, this will break the signal selected on the input switch, and in stead have a very-high impedance instrument input - perfect for DI of e.g. bass guitar.

A gentle highpass filter of either 80 or 160Hz is activated by the “Low-cut” switch, and the unit’s absolute phase can be reversed using the “Phase” switch.

The G9 is floating, transformer balanced at line and mic inputs, as well as on output.  Input impedance for the mic input is some 1KOhm, line is some 10KOhm, Inst. >2MOhm, and output impedance is <1K Ohm.

Although semiconductors are used in this unit, they’re confined to power supply functions.  At no time will your audio pass through anything but transformers, tubes and passives.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
