UA 100D – Four Channel Tube Preamp

 

We have built two of these 4-channel units, one with eqs on each channel and one without. The actual amplifier channels are original parts from a United Audio console. Designed by Bill Putnam both the preamps and eqs were built by United Audio in the late 1950's.

We were fortunate to acquire eight of the original 100D preamps and four of the 508 eqs and have mounted four of the preamps and the eqs into a chassis with VU meters, phantom power, polarity reverse, mic and DI inputs and balanced outs. Layout and construction was done in-house.

Bill Putnam was one of the greats in the audio industry. Apart from building some of the finest studios in Chicago and then doing it again in Los Angeles, beside the fact that he engineered recordings for the greats in Chicago and then in LA his real legacy is in the gear that he designed and built, much of which we still use today. Pieces like the 1176 and the LA- series of compressors are also still highly prized and even modern consoles still follow the designs he pioneered.

UA 100D – Four Channel Tube Preamp

nsts-gear-04.jpg

Title

 

Created primarily for tube amps, the PCVC will vary the voltage available to the gear plugged into it. This will change the tone in ways that are not available through the tone controls. It also provides total isolation and conditioning from any power source for the gear that is plugged into it.

Title

 

This adapter set was created to allow the signal and the power to pass safely from the Hammond to the Leslie through an XLR patch bay with no degradation, allowing for isolation while tracking with other players.

Title

 

The IsoShed is a large isolation cabinet designed to enable tracking with amplifiers and reduce bleed to a manageable level.

The construction of the cabinet makes the amplifier sound very present while maintaining the full richness afforded in a much larger room. The unit is in a basement, has a quiet fan and extensive ducting to accommodate tube amps and is large enough for two guitar cabinets side-by-side with a divider/baffle and mic stands.
