Warm Audio's TB12/500 customizable mic preamp is designed for those who want to remove stock opamps and replace them with their own, while capturing an array of sources well. The ToneBeast includes 2 opamps – one vintage 1731, one cleaner 918 style – and these are socketed and swappable with a choice of 2,520 6-pin footprint opamps. The unit also has 2 Cinemag transformers with multiple discrete signal paths for a bold sound, and the character of these appears when one drives the pre into harmonic distortion. The output control allows users to limit the signal exiting the preamp even when pushing the gain to high levels.
