Preamp / DI that outputs warm and fat sound unique to vacuum tubes. Equipped with a loading control that allows you to adjust the input impedance, allowing you to perfectly match your instrument. Indulge in the glossy and deep tone that can only be obtained with this TD100. Also famous for being used by Seiji Kameda, a former bassist from Tokyo Incidents.
■ Tube preamplifier / direct box
■ Input: Phone
Output: TRS phone, XLR balance (2nd HOT), headphone
■ Vacuum tube: 12AX7A / ECC83 used
■ Circuit form: High voltage class A
■ GAIN: 6dB step with switch, MAX GAIN + 24dB
The gain that boosts low-powered instruments corresponds to various levels of equipment, and produces a variety of tones. In addition, it uses a click-type pot, so it is easy to remember the settings.
■ Input resistance: Variable 10kΩ-2MΩ
■ Maximum input level: Unbalanced + 23dBu
■ Maximum output level: TRS: + 21dBu, XLR: + 2dBu
■ Frequency characteristics: 20Hz-100kHz -1dB
Power supply: Internal AC supply
■ Dimensions and weight: 215.9W × 44.4H × 215.9Dmm, 2.27kg
[Front Direct Out]
Outputs the signal input to INPUT as it is.
Noise from ground loops can sometimes be reduced.
This is used to adjust the impedance of the signal input to INPUT between 10kΩ and 2MΩ to match the impedance of the instrument to the TD100. Use it as a kind of tone control and set it to the sound you want.
The volume is controlled by the output gain and the volume of the instrument.
[TRS phone line level OUTPUT]
Used when connecting to recording equipment without using a preamplifier
[XLR / MIC level / OUTPUT]
Used when connecting to equipment equipped with a preamp such as a mixer
~ Quick Start ~
① Connect instrument to INPUT
② Connect TRS phone or XLR output on rear panel to recording equipment
③ Adjust OUTPUT gain to optimal level
④ Adjust to the best sound with LOADING on the front panel
⑤ After that, just play!!
