FEATURES:

Customer led expanded features, now dual instrument/ player friendly, blended 2 stage Valve “Rich Harmonics” and analogue “High Harmonics”,  

Now allows blending across two channels from Stereo Jack In combined with Phantom Powering option.  Also 3 Phantom voltages, extra D.I Outputs and Pre/Post EQ

EDB-2 VAP expands the appeal of the line from purely acoustic strings applications into the worlds of archtop guitars, jazz, blues, electric guitar and broad orchestral & folk instrument applications

H.E.A.T. ~ Harmonic Enhanced Analogue Technology with tuneable added “Rich & High Harmonics”

Improved Class “A” Inputs & lower noise Pro Audio Circuits voiced for clarity and warmth, producing a huge 32dB of Gain

Twin Channels with 2 sets of 5 Band Interactive EQ & 2 quiet Mute switches 

Phantom Power to jack & XLRs: 48v, 11v & 5v

Mono, Stereo and Balanced Inputs, with two XLR INs, enabling Stereo true Condenser Microphones to be powered via 2 Channels

3 way input impedance switches on each channel

Send / Return and Insert Point provide FX Loops for optimal connection of effects or tuner, separately via both channels

“Range” rotary controls on each Channel provide a variable High Pass Filter,  rolling off low frequencies to optimise low end response

Tuneable Notch Filter on either channel to defeat feedback and resonances on either channel

Phase Reverse and Earth Lift switches to correct phase imbalance, feedback and ground hum

Highly versatile mono, stereo or blended outputs via Line Out jack and two Balanced D.I. XLR’s

USB Charger Socket for digital devices

EDB-2 VAP Aims: To achieve an optimum standard of effective, pleasing and trouble free acoustic amplification 

EDB-2 VAP  PRINCIPLES

EDB-2 VAP is a Valve Pre-amplifier or Analogue Audio Signal Processor with multiple features, offering huge reserves of gain and headroom to interface with a wide range of other devices, while offering problem solving and sound quality enhancement, at low noise

EDB -2 VAP shapes and equalises uneven tones, warms up sound, beats piezo “quack” & feedback, offers audible string separation, enables two sound sources to sit together and sound better, setting input impedances, applying Phase Reverse, or cancelling hum loops

Devices to interface with include mixers, effects pedals and rack units, powered monitor speakers, headphone amps, combo amplifiers and power amplifiers

EDB-2 VAP  offers two uniquely developed analogue H.E.A.T  “Harmonic Enhancer” features

High Harmonics are perceived as an “audio sparkle”, which add “Even Harmonics” 1-1.5 octaves above 1 kHz.  This may replace the frequencies not fully amplified by your pickup or microphone, or where strings are corroded and sounding dull

“Rich Harmonics” adds “Even Harmonics” from the Blend control with 2 stage Valve perceived as warmth, mainly to mid and low frequencies, with some additional high harmonics. The Valve provides a slower electrical response which smooths off transient peaks taking off the Piezo “quack” for a pleasant and natural sound

Re-start instantly and quietly using Standby and the Mute

EDB-2 VAP is small enough for convenient transportation and is supplied as standard with Headway leather (PU) chest bag

Available from Mid July 2023
