Fredenstein F609 500-Series Tube Preamp

The Fredenstein F609 500-Series Tube Preamp is a professional tube microphone preamplifier featuring two double-triodes in a single 500-Series rack module. The sound is very smooth with a big, well defined low-end. This module can rock with the best of them!

The Fredenstein F609 500-Series Tube Preamp uses high quality American made input and output transformers. The main feature of the Fredenstein F609 is the combination of the Input Gain knob (0 to +70 dB) plus Output Gain Knob, plus all-tube signal path. The output level control allows to change the characteristic of the amp and to run the first stages all the way up to distortion and it is genuine old-school tube distortion.

The Fredenstein F609 is particulary interesting paired with the F602 tube compressor, if you happen to like high end vintage flavors and genuine tube character. It also pairs nicely with the Artistic Compressor and Artistic Leveller for traditional 70's style tube mic-pre into solid state FET or Opto compressor chains. Some engineers chain all three. Additional features are: 20db Pad, polarity control, phantom power, a two stage low-cut filter, and a standby mode to preserve the tubes if not in use. The traditional VU meter is standard. Not all racks can supply the 250 mA that the Fredenstein F609 requires, but any of the Bento series are well suited to provide that.

    Love'n the tubes

    Goes quite well with the Fredenstein F602 Tube Compressor. The two of these in a Fredenstein 2 Bento makes for a really smart package.
