Two Channels of Killer Instrument Preamplification

The KGB-II 2-channel instrument preamplifier brings A Designs' keen attention to detail and top-quality engineering to your favorite high-impedance instrument rigs. Whether you're tracking guitar and bass direct or simply want to get the best sound out of your stereo keyboard, the KGB-II is the way to go. With vastly more gain on tap than any DI box, this powerful preamp is ready to feed straight into your digital converter, power amp, or recording system. But while many high-end DIs - including A Designs' own REDDI - deliberately color your sound, the KGB-II employs bipolar electrolytic capacitors, Cinemag output transformers, and other top-shelf circuitry to keep your tone absolutely pristine. And to top it off, you get switchable input gain stages for both channels and instrument-level Thru jacks for daisy chaining.

A Designs KGB-II Instrument Preamplifier Features:
  • An astonishingly transparent 2-channel instrument preamplifier for studio or live use
  • Pristine signal paths includes bipolar electrolytic capacitors and Cinemag output transformers
  • Gain-select switch lets you set the appropriate range for your instruments' output levels
  • Provides up to 90dB of gain (2kHz source @ .775V) with a better than 90dB signal to noise ratio
  • Thru outputs lets you split the inputs off to other amplifiers 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-II preamplifier!
