The fusion of technology and tone
Generation 7 continues our long tradition of building preamps and processors that are transparent and revealing enough to be used specifically with acoustic instruments. It is not enough to faithfully capture the string separation and complex harmonic structure of the instrument, but to also eliminate the hiss that is present in most every other design on the market.
Archangel Preamps deliver uncolored natural tone from a varity of sensor types. They are compatible with magnetic, piezo, and mic systems and include dual and single channel input designs for ultimate connectivity. An interesting aspect of our unique core circuit design is the ability to produce the natural tone of a large condenser mic, using conventional soundboard transducer pickups. Say goodbye to quack and hiss forever!
The Generation 7 models all feature near noiseless circuitry. The ultra-high headroom power supply means super low distortion. Every model is made by hand from premium full size components, because technology should never get in the way of your tone.
We have implemented many improvements like effects loops, DC jacks on every model, high contrast black knobs with translucent lenses for backlighting, much brighter illumination, and more. You will see and hear the difference from across the room.
You asked and we not only listened, we delivered. The features below represent changes our customers have asked for in the way we approach the human interface of our designs. We also made a few upgrades of our own.
