Introducing the B1 Microphone Pre Amps from Burl Audio. Based on the API 500 series form factor, the B1 was designed to compliment the B2 Bomber ADC, and give you multi-channel pleasure. With the proprietary BX3 input transformer and BX2 output transformer, the B1 Mic Pre delivers warmth with depth and clarity. The B1D is the same as the B1 except that it has an all iron BX4 output transformer giving it a more terrifying rock tone. An all discrete transistor, class-A, direct coupled, capacitor free circuit path, gives the B1amazing punch on drums, beautiful tonality on guitars, and warmth with presence on vocals. The B1 come complete with both Gain and Level controls. If you want that heavy, gainy tone, crank up the stepped gain control and offset that with the level control. If clean tone is your thing, turn the gain down and crank up the level. For ribbon mics and other low impedance sources, the B1 has a transformer coupled impedance select. The B1 was rigorously tested with the popular Royer R-121 in the low impedance setting. The B1 gets the best out of any microphone, whether it be dynamic, condenser or ribbon. Use the B1's 1/4” instrument/line input on the front panel, plug in, crank up the gain and go. The PAD switch allows for hot signals and balanced line inputs through the mic XLR on the back panel. Run your tracks or mixes through the B1 for warmth and glue. The B1 was designed to rock. Run multiple B1 channels for your rhythm tracks and you are there. Replace EQ and compression with true analog PHAT. Run your primary tracks through the B1 mic pre, follow with a B2 Bomber ADC and that's about all you will need.

The Burl B1 Mic Pre is an all-discrete, 500-series, VPR-alliance compliant preamp that features Burl Audio's custom BX2 output transformer and capacitor-free circuit path.

If you own or have experienced the incredible sound of the Burl B2 ADC analog-to-digital converter, you know that any high-quality preamp will make a good front end - but why not have one designed with the same custom transformer-based, all-discrete design that put Burl at the top of the converter food chain? That preamp is the Burl B1, built for API's 500 series lunchbox power racks. Featuring the proprietary Burl BX3 input transformer and BX2 output transformer, which offers the clean punch associated with the custom API/DiMedio console of the '70s,  the B1 Mic Pre delivers the famed Burl analog warmth with depth and clarity for days. An all discrete transistor, class-A, direct coupled, capacitor free circuit path, gives the B1 amazing punch on drums, beautiful tonality on guitars, and warmth with presence on vocals.

Burl B1 Mic Pre - Under the Hood

The B1 Mic Pre has both gain and level controls, so you can hit the input harder for more saturation and back off on the output to protect your converters from clipping. If you want that heavy saturated tone, crank up the stepped gain control and offset it with the level control. If clean tone is your thing, turn the gain down and crank up the level. For ribbon mics and other low impedance sources, the B1 has a transformer-coupled impedance select. The B1 has been rigorously tested with the popular Royer R-121 in the low impedance setting, so you know that optimal results are in the offing. Of course, the B1 will coax the best performance from any microphone, whether it's dynamic, condenser, or ribbon.

To use the B1's front-panel 1/4" instrument/line input, simply plug in your weapon of choice, crank up the gain, and you're good to go. The PAD switch allows for hot signals and balanced line inputs through the mic XLR on the back panel. Run your tracks or mixes through the B1 for warmth and glue. The B1 was designed to rock. Run multiple B1 channels for your rhythm tracks and you are there! Replace EQ and compression with true analog PHAT. Run your primary tracks through the B1 mic pre, follow with a B2 Bomber ADC and prepare to unleash sonic dominance on an unsuspecting populace.
