Full, Fat, Beautiful and Delicious!

RFT valve mic preamps

Circa 1938. Beautifully open and rich. We have 2 pairs, each set with different valves for tonal variation. Lovely with ribbon, dynamic or condenser mics.

Behemoth

Spec built circa 1950 for a radio station - we have the only two ever built. Both have been modded for individual outs as have the valve equalisers. Fantastically rich for tracking - the transformers compress beautifully - and also superb for mixing through - if you want that original all tube colour flavouring your mix.

Glensound

Outside broadcast mixer built for Welsh BBC and modified to have 4 individual outputs. Extremely high grade microphone preamplifiers - crystal clear but with rich, sweet colouration from the transformers. Magnificent on vocals and acoustic instruments.

Alice Mixers

We have 4 - and they are all incredible at what they do. The 3 smaller units are used mainly for recording - 2 have Belclere transformers at their inputs (like Neve preamps) and one has a set of Sowters - this one also has limiters on every channel so is angelic on acoustic instruments. The larger unit is mainly for mixing - we like punishing the limiters at the output for the pixie dust and energy they imbue.

Mixing

We have a whole gamut of interesting professional outboard from top digital reverbs to valve spring reverbs to tape echos to analogue delays - to modulatory devices - valve and solid state compressors and equalisers - plus a bunch of very fine plugins if you`re in a hurry. We also like very much the wild creative element so have lapsteels, octave guitars, analogue synths, wind organs and all manner of squeaking honking paraphernalia to scratch that itch!
