Fifty years in the making.
The Shelford Channel is channel strip of the first order. It begins with Rupert Neve’s first new transformer-gain, class-A microphone preamplifier in over 40 years and continues with the “best-of-the-classics” inductor EQ section from the Shelford 5052. It features a tone-packed Diode bridge compressor, the analog power of variable Silk saturation and a new dual-tap transformer output stage for either maintaining headroom or allowing the full driving of the Channel without clipping standard converters.
- Directly-coupled transformer input with gain provided by the custom transformer itself – a first in over 40 years for Rupert Neve
- Dual Tap Transformer Output with Variable Silk
- Direct Input on front panel uses the same discrete class-A FET with transformer topology as the RNDI
- Best Of The Classics 3-Band EQ section
- Diode Bridge Compressor is based on the same topologies found in Rupert’s vintage designs
- Double voltage power via +/- 24V rails versus vintage designs
