Top-shelf Preamp for Any Instrument

Most musicians and engineers never realize the full potential of the instruments they work with because they never get their hands on a top-of-the-line instrument preamplifier like the A Designs KGB-Itf. While at first glance, it's easy to mistake the KGB-Itf for a direct box, this powerful preamp packs so much gain that it's ready to feed straight into your digital converter, power amp, or recording system. We could go on about this single-ended, high-impedance preamp's bipolar electrolytic capacitors and Cinemag output transformer, but what's truly astonishing about it is the tone of the KGB-Itf itself, which is virtually nonexistent. In fact, unless you're using the three +/-12dB tone controls to shape your sound, the only thing the KGB-Itf will do to your signal is make it louder, and that's exactly what you want out of an instrument preamp like this.

A Designs KGB-Itf Instrument Preamplifier Features:
  • An astonishingly transparent single-channel instrument preamplifier for studio or live use
  • Pristine signal path includes bipolar electrolytic capacitors and a Cinemag output transformer
  • Gain-select switch lets you set the appropriate range for your instrument's output level
  • Provides up to 90dB of gain (2kHz source @ .775V) with a better than 90dB signal to noise ratio
  • 3-band tone control provides +/-12dB across each each fixed-frequency band
  • Thru output lets you split the input off to another amplifier or destination
  • All-metal vented chassis and milled aluminum knobs designed for a lifetime of operation
Get the best possible sound from your instrument with an A Designs KGB-Itf preamplifier!
