From America’s premier high-end studio gear manufacturer, the Manley FORCE bursts into 2015 with four channels of vacuum tube microphone preamplifiers extracted from the hugely popular and award winning Manley CORE®, housed in an exquisitely gorgeous chassis, meticulously hand-crafted.
Your microphone signals enter through gold-plated XLR connectors straight into MANLEY IRON® Mic input transformer. Your line level or instrument level guitars and keyboards come in via the front panel 1/4″ Hi-Z 10 megOhm jacks before hitting the input level control which also acts as a Variable Input Pad. Phase Reverse and 120Hz High Pass filters can be invoked here in the circuit and then they’re into the 12AX7 dual triode amplifying stage operating in pure Class A, of course. The amount of GAIN for each channel can be selected as 40dB or 50dB via the front panel switches. An additional 10dB of gain is available via internal jumpers. The output stage “can drive a truck” as they like to brag.
