I designed a new PSU for people who'd like to rack those Yamaha PM1000 channel strips.
The Yamaha PM1000 are usually called Japanese "Neves" because
of a similar approach in design. Just like the Neves, this is all
discrete transistor and uses an input transformer and output transformer.
The EQ section is especially sweet because there is not a single
IC on this preamp. The EQ section uses inductors and capacitors...
totally analog manipulation and shaping of your frequency. (circa
I've tested them on drums and vocals and they really make the sound
FAT. The EQ section shapes your sound anywhere from slight barely
noticeable to extreme gain/reduction. Bass frequencies are solid.
Of course, being an analog EQ, it is not as precise in shaping the
sound as IC chip Equalizers. But the curve is smoother I would think.
So if you're racking a PM1000 strip you bought from eBay, this PSU will be perfect for you. Output is +44VDC and +48VDC for the Phantom Power.
I'm having prototypes built. If you're interested, email me. Screenshot:
The new PCB designs will be smaller and double-sided measuring 2.25" x 2.25"
I don't have this mass-manufactured, so I'm selling it at a low price just to recover some of my costs. $20 each. Email me first before ordering. Thanks.
