The Black Lion Audio B12A uses the very special circuitry of American preamps to provide extremely fast and clean transient response. The Cinemag input and output transformers deliver up to 70dB of rich gain, while the front panel D.I. conjures up fat sound for guitars, keyboards and synthesizers. At the same time, the gridded input gain allows for easy recall.

Mic Preamp

The sound of classical consoles was largely characterized by their special transformers, which offer an exceptionally musical reproduction. Nevertheless, many modern circuit designs dispense with these complex components for cost reasons. Black Lion Audio is aware of the importance of transformers in the signal path and therefore builds with a clear focus on an uncompromising musical sound only high-quality components in this preamplifier.

The B12A has an XLR input on the back and a TS jack with Hi-Z switch for passive guitars and basses on the front. The output on the rear panel is TRS. For high-level signal sources, the preamp has a pad switch with -18dB. In addition, thanks to the high-quality external power supply, interference from the mains is eliminated.
