INTRODUCING: THE ARKHAM ABYSS!
-- a versatile, mid-priced addition to the Arkham lineup. Use either standalone, or mounted as a 1/2 rack 2U!
- 12AX7 preamp tube* selected for good tone and low microphonics, and run at correct voltages (not a starved plate design)
- Mosfet buffered Lo-Z output, drives modern solid state power amps or recording interfaces with ease.
- Balanced DI output, featuring a hefty Edcor transformer for full frequency response. Ground lift switch for good measure.
- Gain, Treble, Bass controls - uses a James Tonestack to provide a wide adjustment range with minimal interaction.
- Range control – sweeps the tonestack "midpoint" anywhere between 150Hz and 1KHz
- Hi switch – adds a "bright cap" to the circuit to open up the high frequencies a bit.
- Mid switch – provides a healthy bump around 250Hz
- Lo switch – another healthy bump, this time at 80Hz (without any mud!).
- HPF switch - a gentle roll off beginning around 100Hz
- DC referenced heaters, for ultra quiet operation.
- Turret board construction, Mil-spec Teflon wire, etc.
