Description

Ask any Sales Engineer here at Sound Town Electronics  and you’ll here the same thing: there simply is no single “best” microphone preamp out there, because it all depends on what kind of coloration you’re going for. That’s why were’s so jazzed about the Warm Audio TB12 Microphone Preamp, which sticks the equivalent of 24 amazing preamps all in the space of two 500 Series rack modules. And we’re not talking about any fancy modeling here, the TB12 500 gives you two input impedance settings, two op amps, two capacitor sets, and three output transformer options – all built with discrete circuitry that you can mix and match as you please. The result is a single preamp that can offer up anything from the most pristine modern transparency to the most colorful vintage console sound you can imagine

Impressively flexible op amp options let you select your sonic coloration

The most coveted analog consoles and outboard gear are’t transparent, and the Warm Audio TB12 Microphone Preamp was designed to deliver that same beautifully flawed and richly vitalizing sound. In fact, Warm Audio loaded this Tone Beast preamp with two discrete op amps in separate switchable signal paths. The classic Melcor-style 1731 op amp (x731 setting) offers a more vintage sound, whereas the Dean-Jensen-type 918 op amp (x18 setting) gives you a cleaner, more modern sound. And if you’re a real tone freak, then you’ll be delighted to know that these op amps are both mounted to the TB12 via standard 6-pin sockets, so you can swap them out with any 2520-class op amps you like.

Swapping out CineMag transformers offers even more character control

What’s better than a high-end CineMag transformer? Two of them, of course! That’s why Warm Audio loaded their TB12 500 Tone Beast with both a 100% steel CineMag transformer and another one that’s 50% nickel, and you can swap them out with the flip of a switch. When you push the gain – something that’s easy to do, thanks to the independent gain and output volume controls – the Warm Audio TB12 Microphone Preamp steel transformer distorts (colors) significantly more than the 50% nickel option, which generally offers a wider frequency spread. But even the nickel option is delightfully warm, so if you’re going for totally clean, then you may want to bypass the Tone Beast’s transformers altogether, which is also an option.

Impedance and capacitor switching give you extra tonal versatility

Warm Audio equipped the TB12 with a secret weapon: a Tone button that switches the input impedance from 600 to 150 ohms. Pushing this button changes the tone of both the mic and hi-Z inputs, letting you individually optimize for each of your microphones and giving you a measure of sonic versatility without your having to resort to EQ. Another way you can significantly alter the Tone Beast’s character is with the Clean/Vintage switch, which lets you flip back and forth between tantalum and electrolytic capacitors. Between the op amps, transformers, impedance settings, and switchable capacitors, owning a single TB12 500 Tone Beast preamp is like owning a series of 24 pres, ranging from ultra-clean to intensely colored.
