BigAmp is a small sized high quality jfet instrument preamp which performs equally well on stage as it does in a studio environment. It has a 1/4″ female jack input which accepts signals ranging from the piezo pickup of a double bass, cello or acoustic guitar to the line level output of a synthesizer. BigAmp’s low noise class A amplifier provides high end amplification and converts the instrument output signal from unbalanced to balanced. An extra benefit might be BigAmps small size, making it ultra portable.
BigAmp is an ideal companion for DAW recording. By recording a clean signal directly to disk you get the advantage of being able to sculpt the sound of your recorded track with your favourite plugin’s during mixdown.
How it works
Stick BigAmp on a microphone cable, plug in your electric guitar, Bass(or any other instrument with a jack output) and switch on phantom power. BigAmp goes directly into a balanced input of your mixing desk,
it can also be used as a frontend for your microphone-pre or channel strip in a (home)studio setup.
BigAmp matches the high impedance unbalanced output of your guitar with the balanced low impedance input of a mixing desk/microphone-pre.
