Sonic Farm MAS Tantra 1200 Watt Amp/Studio Pre/DI

SKU/ID: 1000Tantra

Price: $2,300.00


The new Sonic Farm bass preamp, designed in collaboration with Michael Arnopol Soundworks, will be available September 2016 both as a preamp and as an integrated amp, containing a 1000W ICE power module. Topology in the Tantra is hybrid, like many Sonic Farm products. Two pentodes at the front end take care of the clean gain and overdrive. After that, the signal undergoes a variety of solid-state based processing, such as a high pass filter, 5-band EQ, compressor, and a 2-part harmonic generator section. Final Output is handled by a high power ICE module. The Tantra is suitable for the studio musician who does not want to leave their high quality preamp and processing behind when on a gig or the gigging musician who wants studio quality processing and features. The Tantra even has a separate power control to defeat the power amp while in use for DI only applications such as studio recording.
