Grace Design ALiX Acoustic Instrument Preamp

The Grace Design ALiX is a studio quality single channel acoustic instrument preamp, EQ, DI, and boost.

Like its big sibling the FELiX, ALiX is built into the same ultra-roadworthy floor unit chassis, portable enough to throw in your bag or strap to your pedal-board, but still deliver studio quality sound to the stage. With the same stunning audio performance and legendary reliability as Grace Design's pro audio range, ALiX brings open, musical and nuanced sonic character to any performance situation.

The same powerful eq section as the FELiX allows simple and intuitive tone shaping. The high pass filter cuts 12dB per octave from 20Hz to 1kHz, and can also be set as a notch filter for chasing down problem feedback or rumble areas. Parametric mid-range covers from 70Hz all the way to 8KHz, and fixed low and high controls are carefully voiced for musical shading of bass and treble.

Controls are dead simple and clearly marked on the panel, making them easy to read and tweak on a dark stage. Footswitches include a mute / tune switch for muting all outputs except the dedicated tuner out, and a boost switch which activates the 10dB variable boost circuit.

The instrument input has a 3 position impedance switch to ensure your pickup system sounds its very best. The isolated DI output with our custom wound transformer delivers stunning clarity and bass response with incredibly low noise. A dedicated, level controlled amplifier output can be used to drive a stage amp or personal monitor, and a dedicated tuner output stays active when all the other outputs are muted.

Power is supplied by a universal 100-240VAC input module. 12V phantom is available in the line input for electret/lavalier mics, and we’ve even included a 9VDC 500mA BOSS™ style pedal power output jack, so you can power your tuner and eff ects right from your ALiX. A TRS insert is included for adding effects.

Regardless of what you play - ALiX is designed to help you sound better, play better and deepen the bond between you and your instrument.

The Grace Design ALiX December 4, 2017
Reviewer: Daniel Weldon from Ogden, UT United States  
I have never heard a preamp in pedal form that sounds this good, and besides that, it is loaded with great features like, highly configurable EQ (switchable center point in LF,  notch control to HP filter, a fully parametric mid control with 2 ranges), 9V 500 ma DC convenience outlet, switchable tip/ring phantom on 1/4" input, and so much more. GREAT PRODUCT!!! And I saved quite a bit with the Front End Audio Black Friday sale price on this item which rarely goes on sale anywhere else!
