Chandler Limited Little Devil 500-Series Preamp
The Chandler Limited Little Devil 500-Series Preamp is a fantastic choice when you need total tonal flexibility all in one fantastic sounding preamplifier! Perfect to match with the Little Devil Compressor and Little Devil Equalizer.
What makes the Little Devil Pre so special? Well, several things. The Class A gain stage sounds like no other design we've done. It's big, yet open and full of life. Just about any parameter of the sound is changeable including the ability to change both the Feedback and Bias of the amplifier. The Feedback control increases harmonics thousands of times over the range of the control. The nature of clipping and distortion also changes and ranges from soft Class A clipping to super soft gushy tube type. The sounds range from a very colored and "overbiased" tone to a gently colored and "in your face" tone.
Other features of the Little Devil Pre include High and Low input impedance; transformer balanced line in for using the Devil as a color box on mixes or tracks; low cut; bright switch and more! This unit has no power-up issues with lunchboxes and rack systems.

I really enjoy the functionality of this product. A ton of options stacked in a tiny well constructed box from a name synonymous with quality and integrity. Works extremely well with coloring line level audio and packs a wide variety of tonal variations within the feedback and bias. Thanks Chandler!!!
I've tried several sources using this pre. You have plenty of color as well as input options. I could see how this thing would be GREAT for re-amping digital synth signal or bass. As I record mostly acoustic instruments, it wasn't a good match for me. Too my ears, the "color" was pretty harsh with a small sweet spot.
