BURL B1 Mic Pre

Brace yourself! Here comes the B1 and B1D! BURL Audio is very proud to introduce the B1 and B1D MICROPHONE PRE AMPS. Its form is based off of the API 500 series, while its purpose is to compliment the B2 BOMBER ADC, while providing you with multi channel pleasure. With the proprietary BX3 input transformer and BX2 output transformer, the B1 MIC PRE produces a beautiful warmth with depth and clarity. The B1D is almost exactly the same as the B1 aside from the fact that it has an all iron BX4 output transformer, which gives it a more savage rock tone. An all discrete transistor, class-A, direct coupled, capacitor free circuit path gives the B1 a powerful punch on drums, beautiful tonality on guitars, and warmth with presence when it comes to vocals. The B1 and B1D feature both Gain and Level controls. If you want that heavy, gainy tone, crank up the stepped gain control and offset that with the level control. If clean tone is your thing, turn down the gain and crank up the level. For ribbon mics and other low impedance sources, the B1 has a transformer coupled impedance select. The B1 was thoroughly tested with the popular Royer R-121 in the low impedance setting, and in our opinion, it sounds absolutely unreal on guitar amps.

The B1 gets the best out of any microphone, whether it be dynamic, condenser or ribbon. Use the B1’s 1/4” instrument/line input on the front panel, plug in, crank up the gain and go. The PAD switch allows for hot signals and balanced line inputs through the mic XLR on the back panel. Run your tracks or mixes through the B1 for warmth and glue. The B1 was designed to rock. Run multiple B1 channels for your rhythm tracks and you are there. Replace EQ and compression with true analog PHAT. Run your primary tracks through the B1 mic pre, follow with a B2 Bomber ADC and that’s about all you will need.
