Humboldt Electronics Simplifier on RigShare
The Simplifier features a 100% true analog preamp that recreates with obsessive detail the most useful and popular clean channel preamps in the market. The genuine passive preamp tone stack is a key part of a tube amp sound and response is the tone stack behavior. The tone stack on the Simplifier is a genuine configurable three band classic amplifier topology, keeping the same feel, response and interaction of the original amp. The Power Amp Sim is an accurate approximation of the interaction between the power tubes, output transformer and global feedback, which produces a particular frequency response for different tubes and speakers. The Tweakable Cabinet simulator takes the heritage and experience of DSM Noisemaker developing the most useful and innovative cabsims of the market.You can easily dial two independent cabinet simulators panned Left - Right with Mic Position controls that responds as a real center/off axis microphone position adjusting the precise amount of high-end roll off you look for. A three way toggle switch allows you to choose independent cabinet style for each side. Pick from a 1x12 Combo,2x12 or 4x12 cabinet simulations that you can combine with any of the 3 preamps, adding an extra dimension to your sound development. The Spread Control feature allows you to create a pseudo stereo imaging, by shifting the phase of one channel on selected key frequencies. It will make your sound bigger and 3 dimensional, even if you are using a mono configuration. This spread is useful to get that "dual Cab" sound with realistic physical separation, very useful for recording on a stereo track, or playing with headphones.

Atomic Brain™ Preamp

The Nocturne ATOMIC BRAIN™ PREAMP in Cold Beer Candy (candy gold sparkle over raw aluminum box) All the great sound of the DYNOBRAIN w/ an ABBY* mode that opens up the preamp for solo'ing or adding more punch/crunch to power chord. For your Electric Guitar, I've replicated a much improved Vintage Japanese 70's preamp from the RE-301 Tape Delay machine known as the Space Echo. A Full sonic spectrum, preamplifier that is hand wired & loaded with hi-fidelity audio components; 22 gauge bonded copper strand wiring,, vishay metal film resistors in the audio path, socketed Opamp, Metal Film cap, Quality Sprague, Panasonic Electrolytics, etc w/ all flying leads to Alpha pots and switchcraft jacks w/ hardwire true bypass. We've Improved the input impedence, extended the gain range & added a Bass cut that the original RE-301 didnt have, this aids in use with cranked small amp to keep the speaker from farting out AND when the Bass Cut is dialed back to 7 oclock, the tone sweep will give you a leaner, tighter modern flavor. Dial it back to 4-5 o'clock for the vintage full low mids of the original character and color. a "vintage-modern" contour if you will. My pedals are Loaded with the best Hi Fidelity audio components; silver mica and metal film caps, vishay & xicon metal film resistors in the audio path, Nos sprague electrolytics,socketed Opamp, Alpha pots and Switchcraft jacks plus HD stomp switch hardwired, true bypass. These components are upgraded from the original generic parts you will find in the vintage RE-301 space echo, that were very noisy. The original RE-301 was actually much quieter, w greater headroom than its predecessor the RE-201 that used random non spec carbon film resistors and transistors. So w our replication of the RE-301 space echo preamp, you are getting an even more quiet version. All our preamps operate at 9v and 12v. I prefer to run mine at 9v for more texture and saturation at max gain. note: Average turn 2 weeks at this time. it will be delivered via USPS.com Priority insured (international is Fed-X insured )when the build is finished. I make each one to order and the day I receive your order you are put on the build list. When the build is finished we send you a ship/track number via an email. (*tech notes: ABBY MODE... this boost mode isnt acting like other drive boxes that employ cascading gain or double up on diode clipping . Its a bit of a unique approach to solve the request for a solo mode. The "ABBY" is opening wide the preamp gain range. Guitar solo's will stand above the band digging in at chorus intensity or even if at a turn around you want a cool melodic travis pickin pass. The ABBY switch is taking your guitar from whatever level you have the NORMAL mode at (this normal mode is the Dyno Brain with a hair more open highs) and suddenly making everything like 35% more dynamic than it was (i hate using "touch sensitive") so as you dig in for the solo the guitar is pushin into the amp or whatever is after it that much more. The more the normal channel gain is turned up, the more boost you will get from the "ABBY" mode. A neat by-product is that if you just keep both stompers on, the input impedance is now so responsive there is plenty of "rawk" avail for master volume amp guys. Worth a mention: The original Toshiba linear Op Amp was not magic, only special feature at that time was that is was low noise for 70's standards, but moving to a more modern version of this single opamp in the 8dip format, you will get less noise, and wider bandwidth and less distortion at higher saturation points. The option for a NOS metal can chip is available, but the right way to go to my experienced ear and thousands who use the Brain Preamp in pedalboards around the globe, is the modern chip I use in this preamp. Sounds kind of haughty, but thats not why I'm pointing it out. I simply want to make sure you realize you are getting the best version of this vintage Japanese preamp found in an RE-301 space echo. I can offer you this NOS chip as an upgrade btw. btw..I do build the Billy Brain version for better operation w those who play a master volume amp and ride their gain control, basically those that dont play clean. click the Billy Brain option, click it. (yes you can use this w non MV amps too, its much brighter w more gain on tap than the standard model)
