To achieve a rich and thick sounding tone, the output stage of the preamplifier utilizes a 600 Ω M-6 silicon-steel output transformer. The unit features, a 1/4" TRS instrument input on the front, a gain control knob, a phase switch, +48 VDC of phantom power, a Hi-z switch, and a 10 dB output signal pad.
