Pendulum MDP-1A – No Longer Available
A key component of the sound of a tube mic preamp is the input transformer. It's here that we let your select how you would like the preamp to sound. The MDP-1 can be ordered with your choice of two low turns-ratio transformers depending on your requirements: a Jensen 13K7A for a full, open sound with plenty of sparkle in the high end and a deep low end - perfect for recording all sources, especially instrumental music; or a custom-wound transformer for a more 'focused' sound, with extra presence and clarity in the midrange - ideal for a vocal sound that easily distinguishes itself in a mix.
The MDP-1 also has all the things you'd expect in a full-featured mic preamp; phantom power, phase reverse, -20dB input pad, a lo cut filter with 10 frequencies and large, illuminated VU meters.
The DI signal path is completely transformerless, with a selection of three input load impedances: 10M for piezoelectric acoustic instrument pickups, 1M for magnetic pickups, and 100k with a 20dB pad for line level sources such as keyboards or other -10dBV equipment.
