Tonebone AC-Driver™ Acoustic Instrument Preamp
I like everything about this. I can't find the info on their site, but do you know if it has the "standard" 12dB/octave HPF slope?
Look at the grafic in the Ushers manual
Pity it doesn't run on either batteries or phantom.
Just foud this, looking for something like it for guitar but the power supply is a deal breaker. There is absolutely no excuse for anything XLR out not to run on phantom power unless its a tube amp or something.
at least it looks like you could use a standard boss power supply with this one. On their other stuff you have to have their proprietary adapter
has anybody tried this yet?
On paper it looks to be exactly what I'm after. I currently find my fDeck doesn't always give me quite enough control but my Headway EDB2 is more complex than I need.
The fact it can't run off a battery or 48v is kind of annoying but not a deal breaker for me.
It's great. It has all the features which I am missing on my EBS preamp...
Any real world experience with this unit?
Has anybody used this item with either DB or EUB?
As far as battery or phantom power, this thing draws a fair amount of current @ 40mA. Phantom only supplies about 14mA, so that's out. A 9 volt alkaline has about 500mAH, so it would last about 12-1/2 hours. You could connect a 9 volt battery to it with a battery snap, a plug and some wire, but the life would still be short.
these days it's not hard to get 9V dc out of a mobile phone power bank, given the right USB to DC adaptor cable. I think someone posted an example of using this setup to power a tonedexter. I am lucky to have obtained a used Zoom A3, which can run straight off USB 5 V. It's seems a pity that the Zoom is now discontinued. I have used my power bank on 3 gigs, and the display on it says it still has 90% charge.
I emailed LR Baggs to get a couple knobs for my venue DI and asked about something like this. I prefer Baggs because they have a 9v battery inside. Much more convenient
The slope is 6dB/octave...
It seems to be designed with acoustic guitar in mind...
