Like having your own little piece of music recording history. The JHS Colour Box is based on the circuitry of a vintage Neve 1073 preamp to bring the color and character of a real vintage console to your feet or desktop.
JHS started with two gain stages in series that produce beautiful clean tones but that can also destroy any signal into a beautiful fuzzy mess, full of rich harmonics and body with over 39db of gain on tap. The local feedback of each gain stage makes for a very unique type of distortion. They used the same topology and discrete gain stage found in the Neve* 1073, but we have two gain stages in series instead of one. They use a high quality Lundahl transformer that adds weight, heft, and a 3D quality just like preamps that you will find costing much more. The transformer fattens the lows, adds harmonic complexity and richness to the midrange as well as smoothing and rounding of the high frequencies. It also blocks all DC voltages, adds electrical isolation, and blocks RF frequencies ensuring super quiet operation and noise floor.
