Tierra Audio Flavours Complete Set

Full set of Tierra's Flavour in-line microphone preamps including Truffle, Cocoa, Mint, Chilli, Vanilla, Pepper and Salt preamps

MFR# TA-FLV-008-001

Product Description

Tierra Audio Flavours Preamps are a collection of studio-quality microphone inline analog preamplifiers that will bring an extra dose of gain, texture and color to your vocals and instrument recordings, and live performances.

Thanks to the wide range of Flavours offered, you can enjoy different gain levels, from an enhanced and crystalline sound to different types and intensities of "sonic flavours" specially designed to bring a unique character, always without losing a drop of musicality. You will get warmer nuances and sounds, others sharper or hotter, others denser, others more saturated, others with more definition, more grain, or even more crunchy.

Simply plug in your favorite microphone and start singing or playing your instrument: You’ll be amazed at your "new sound!"

Like all Tierra products, the Flavours Preamps are handmade with tons of love in Madrid (Spain), with circuits and electronic components of the highest quality. They result from the joint effort of engineers, musicians, designers, and producers to provide a full range of "portable flavours" that will enrich and nuance the sound of your microphones.

They are ultra-compact and don’t need batteries or additional power cables, so you can use them comfortably not only at home or in the recording studio but also in the rehearsal room, in your live concerts, in your streaming and videoconference sessions, or working on your productions all over the city, or while traveling or on vacation.


Truffle features the most daring and exclusive sound in the Flavours Inline Mic Preamp series. It brings an abundant amount of saturation to the sound. From the beginning, you will hear a very evident but contained and musical distortion. Many of you will enjoy this new alternative for your voices, but also for your drums and percussions.

It’s not a flavour for everyone or with which to dress up all your recordings, but a pinch on the right voice or instrument will delight your audience.

  • Intense sound, hard saturation, daring and exclusive
  • Boosted gain: +32 dB
  • Frequency filter: less treble
  • Harmonic distortion: heavy musical distortion provided by its exclusive germanium diodes
  • Input transformer: Lundahl


Cocoa brings a thick, dense character to your sound, with less treble and with an interesting “de-esser” effect. It’s perfect for microphones used for podcasting, streaming and locutions. But, if you want to add a lot of colour in your music to your vocals, guitars, strings, drums… Cocoa will not leave you disappointed!

  • Dense sound, slow transients, warmth and colour
  • Boosted gain: +45 dB
  • Frequency filter: more middle, less treble
  • Harmonic distortion: odd harmonics, slow response to transients
  • Input transformer: exclusive Carnhill (as used in Tierra's Lava Preamp)


Mint offers a very fresh sound, rich in treble and with a slightly bright amplification. Perfect for enhancing your darker voices, instruments or microphones, such as the Shure SM7B and most ribbon microphones.

  • Fresh sound, slightly bright, delicate and musical
  • Boosted gain: +33 dB
  • Frequency filter: less bass, more treble
  • Harmonic distortion: soft even harmonics, fast response to transients
  • Input transformer: Lundahl


Chilli is Tierra's most wild flavour and, without a doubt, the crispy and sharpest. It's very suitable for vocals, because can bring an amazing energy and a lot of presence. Also, many acoustic guitarists, drummers and percussionists will want to carry one under their arm at all times.

  • Aggressive "In-Your-Face" sound, very fast transients, even harmonics
  • Boosted gain: +51 dB
  • Frequency filter: none
  • Harmonic distortion: even harmonics, crispy sound with hard compression of peaks
  • Input transformer: Lundahl


Vanilla brings a more creamy and controlled sound that will delight all lovers of warm vocals. Also its very suitable for full-bodied choirs, and the recording of string instruments with a moderately thick sound, from guitars to violins, cellos, basses, and even ukuleles.

  • Creamy sound, slow transients, odd harmonics
  • Boosted gain: +28 dB
  • Frequency filter: more middle
  • Harmonic distortion: odd harmonics, slow response to transients
  • Input transformer: Lundahl


Pepper brings a very defined sound, with a pinch of compression, slightly spicy but without getting hard distortion at the highest levels of signal, as is the case with Chili, its big brother.

Its fast response to transients and its excellent level of gain will help you get a better sound in voices of many different pitches and achieve recordings of guitars and percussion instruments with a definition that will not leave you indifferent.

The compression effect it provides is perfect for live vocals in musical styles such as rock, and heavy, and its infinite variations.

  • Defined sound, compression, fast transients, even harmonics
  • Boosted gain: +33 dB
  • Frequency filter: moderate compression, perfect for live performances
  • Harmonic distortion: very soft, only on very signal peaks
  • Input transformer: none


When the flavour you already have in a dish is 100% what you are looking for, but you would like to enhance it, what do you use? A pinch of salt, exactly! Salt is Tierra's most neutral and transparent flavour, that is, without adding a speck of flavour, color, or distortion to your sound.

This preamp is perfect for use with your Shure SM7B microphone without adding color, or your favorite passive ribbon microphones, protecting them from the possible adverse effects of phantom power and preserving all the original nuances while amplifying the weak signal usually generated by this type of mics so that you have no noise at the input of your audio interface when trying to compensate for that low signal.

  • Boosted sound, ultra transparent, precision and realism
  • Boosted gain: +39 dB
  • Frequency filter: none, transparent
  • Harmonic distortion: none, transparent
  • Input transformer: none

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!

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.
Phil T.
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.

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.
