OVERVIEW

Single-channel microphone preamp.

The Artistic Pre features top-of-the-line performance at a very affordable price. The key component in achieving this performance level is the new OPA2 discrete audio operational amplifier. It is not a copy of an older design, but a completely new Fredenstein circuitry manufactured in SMT technology. Matched and integrated dual input transistors guarantee vastly improved specifications compared to older designs. The OPA2, following the tradition of well known manufacturers, is socketed and easily exchanged, and uses industry-standard pin-outs.

Another very important sound-shaping component is the American-made steel-core output transformer, with a smooth vintage sound without being dark or just “mid-rangy.” A 100 KOhm direct input is on the front panel. It accepts balanced and unbalanced signals, and the rear mic input automatically disconnects when a plug is inserted into the DI. Features include a max gain of 65 dB, a -20 dB Pad, switchable polarity, selectable input impedance and Phantom-Power support. Eight LED Peak-Meter with a 50 dB range for precise reading.

As all Fredenstein products, the Artistic Pre is designed by a German-American team and manufactured in Taiwan.
