Hardware AAE Preamp and Reverb: tube and spring

Word up. Theo at AAE has just perfected his latest brainchild:

AAE Preamp & Reverb - YouTube

Take a look/listen. Pricing is from £2k, depending on custom options, which is a steal for a handmade, point-point wired product of this quality.



AAE Preamp and Reverb

This unit accepts various input sources and amplifies them for recording purposes. An extra facility is the spring reverb section and the amplified reverb drive signal. Both of these signals can be mixed with the original signal. It is a purely analogue design using valves and transistors working on relatively high voltages (up to 320Vdc) producing high level signals, a lot of headroom.

It can be adjusted to produce clean, mildly or even heavily distorted sound. The type of harmonics generated can be even and low in order (musical) but sometimes if so desired, odd too, for harsher sound (for instance bass, drums etc.) Harmonic distortion can be combined with frequency adjustment through careful use of the gain switches/controls and the inbuilt EQ. Overdrive distortion combined with the reverb sections can also produce a variety of different sounds.

This one is 100% Theo's gig (I only suggested the EQ points!), so I'll pass on your positive words.

Cool - any chance you could ask him to post video/sound samples of something mic'd like a guitar amp, vocals, etc.? The synths sound great but I'm more of a mic man in my world.

You're right, we should add a guitar demo. Theo also makes guitar amps and there's a singing teacher in his workshop's building, so consider me on the case!
