Creamer Dual Pentode Preamplifier


The word of mouth is faster that the speed of sound! The Creamer is becoming the “go to” preamp for more and more discriminating engineers and producers!

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.
