The Burl Audio B1 Microphone Pre-Amp is based on the API 500 series form factor, the B1 is meant to compliment the B2 BOMBER ADC and the B80 MOTHERSHIP with multi-channel versatility. The B1 contains the Burl BX3 input transformer, BX2 nickel output transformer and an all discrete transistor, class-A, direct coupled, capacitor free circuit path and give your sound warmth with depth and clarity. For comparison, the B1D contains an all iron BX4 output transformer providing a straight ahead rock tone.
Both the B1 and B1D include Gain and Level controls to let you swing from a heavy gain rock tone to something more smooth and clean, even when coupled with a low impedance ribbon microphone.
The 1/4” instrument/line input on the front panel, mic XLR on the back panel, and PAD switch allow for hot signals and balanced line inputs. Run your tracks or mixes through the B1 to glue your sound together.
