Title
Mount Cyanide (818) Preamp
Content
<p class="p1">Made for the Jensen 918 Op Amp (gar918, BLU-18), the Mount Cyanide 818 Mic and Instrument Preamp caters to the low impedance input and feedback network that Deane Jensen spec'd for his original 918 op amp. Jensen, Cinemag and Lundahl Transformers footprints in all positions - with an option for Pikatron in the instrument direct input. Microphone input features the relay-controlled PHD circuit of phantom, pad and polarity. The unbalanced input automatically switches to a D.I. circuit and runs the signal through a third transformer allowing direct recordings for guitar, bass, synth or drum machine. A total of 3 transformers in the signal path makes the 818 an excellent preamp for instrument tracking. An output fader allows you to drive the transistors and transformers harder for saturated tone while maintaining optimal recording level.</p> *Please note that the instrument input will only work with unbalanced connections. For balanced, use the mic input and engage the pad.
