Our most aggressive analog preamplifier.
Calima Preamp has been designed to provide you with a quick and defined response, successfully unraveling the recording needs of drum sets and percussive rhythms for the most avant-garde productions.
The source of its full-bodied and steady sound lies in the excitation of the even harmonics of the frequency spectrum. That, together with a linear phase distortion, grants a sense of a more homogenic mix in the resulting sound.
Furthermore, this equipment counts on a quick transient response resulting in an enhanced sound presence sensation.
Bring out the rhythm of your life!
Connect your favorite microphone to the Calima Preamp and check the improvement out! The sound you will obtain will reach you with an incredible punch and definition. It will make your sound deeper, defined, and enhance its presence.
If you want to make the most of those rhythms plug your microphone in the Calima Preamp, and you will see how the sound reaches the next level. Thanks to the even harmonics’ excitation your sounds will gain the presence and might to make your percussions something beyond this world.
