Creamer Pentode Preamp CAD $2450.00
How is Creamer different from the rest of “the pack”? Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it has a very pleasing pentode coloration while retaining transparency until now achieved only with meticulously designed solid state preamps. The advanced hybrid design enables a switchable solid state or transformer output for two distinctively different characters. When you add a choice of pentode or triode tube mode, there are in fact 4 preamp sounds in it.
Unlike some highly popular pro-audio gear manufacturers who use cheap Chinese transformers, we use only the highest quality Cinemag types on both input and output. The bottom line: Creamer will love everything you throw at it: vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, percussion, acoustic instruments, etc.
But don’t take our word for it. Hear what the pros are saying:

Creamer Special Edition
The Creamer Special Edition has a few improvements over the C Plus:
– Thanks to the new bias circuit, gain can be adjusted in 4 steps, a 3-way
toggle switch plus the G/MAX button. This also eliminates the need for pad.
– All discrete signal path now also in Solid State mode.
– Reduced current draw means less heat dissipation and even more stability.
– Even more headroom
– Soft clipping when overdriven
And all this with the same lush and sparkly tone that the Creamers are known for!
