Manufacturer's Description from Tube-Tech


The TUBE-TECH MP 1A is a combined dual Microphone Preamplifier and Direct Instrument amplifier for microphones or instruments. The microphone inputs and outputs are balanced as well as fully floating. The inputs provide a switchable +48 V phantom power as well as a switchable -20 dB pad. Gain is adjustable in 5 dB increments from +20 dB to +70 dB.

The Direct Instrument Inputs are unbalanced with a gain ranging from + 10 dB to + 60 dB. The amplifiers are all tube based and the heaters are on a strict diet of DC-voltage only to avoid hum. All transformers, with the exception of the mains transformer, are enclosed in MU-metal cans. Input and output transformers come with a static screen between the primary and secondary wirings.

About Manufacturer

STATEMENT It is our mission to ensure the engineer has confidence in his working tools and feels comfortable working with them. To achieve this, it is our job to bring out the very best in the tubes, as well as continuously strive to offer the professional audio engineer outboard equipment of sublime quality ? both in terms of sound and reliability. Lydkraft ApS was founded in 1977 by partners John G. Petersen, Niels Wors?e and Karsten Bruun. Originally the core business of the company was PA, which was a successful venture until 1980, when the partnership was cancelled ? and Mr. Petersen decided to take Lydkraft on his own shoulders. The company was relocated to the interimistic surroundings of Mr. Petersens garage.... Mr. Petersen now redefined the business focus of Lydkraft: He terminated the PA business entirely and focused his efforts towards design, development and manufacturing. During this period small production runs of direct boxes, mixing desks and speaker systems were manufactured as well. In the early 80?s, the demand for vintage tube gear was increasing at a rapid pace. But at the same time tube equipment became more and more scarce by the day. The idea of taking on development & manufacturing of recording equipment with tubes came about in 1984. The first tube-based unit bearing the name TUBE-TECH was developed as an almost direct copy of the Pultec EQP 1A. The tubes of TUBE-TECH Program Equalizer PE 1A glowed for the first time in 1985 and the very first shipment containing 30 units stood ready in June 1985. Next in line was the TUBE-TECH PE 1B and TUBE-TECH Midrange Equalizer ME 1A, soon followed by the TUBE-TECH Compressor Limiter CL 1A and the TUBE-TECH Microphone Preamp MP 1A in 1987.
