Product Description

From beautiful glowing vocals, natural acoustics and punchy drums to overdriven and saturated classic tube warmth.

Locomotive Audio's dual channel 286A offers a huge sonic palette for engineers and producers to explore. Its single-ended Class A tube signal path is what makes this preamplifier so special. Inspired by the great vintage Ampex 601 vacuum tube tape recorder, the 286A features two tubes per channel, one EF806 and one 12AY7. The 286A can play nice by acting clean and natural with gentle even-order harmonics for a smooth, sweet touch. Get more aggressive with the "Gain" knob and drive the first 12AY7 stage for a warm and coloured thickening effect. Go all-out and slam the final 12AY7 stage and output transformer through the "Level" knob for a fully-driven, saturated tube amp sound! Clean and natural to overdriven and fuzzy warm; your choice! Along with its classic tube gain stages, the 286A has been given the modern front panel features that allow for flexible interfacing with today's studio equipment.
