Soundsystem Pre-Amps

These types of pre-amps are only known within the world of reggae soundsystems. Technically they are what differentiate the ‘soundsystem’ to a conventional PA. Often custom built, they are not available for off the shelf purchase - making them a rare and unique piece of equipment.

The general purpose of the pre-amp is to enable the operator to control and customise the shape of the sound by use of extended EQ, frequency band cut / boost and FX channels. They are a hands-on tool which can be used to fine tune the system to each piece of music selected and some types can be used to manipulate a track into a remix or dub version by the skilled operator, thereby transforming the soundsystem into a live musical instrument.

These pre-amps don’t come with a user manual and often the controls are unmarked. It is down to each individual operator to find their own technique, giving their sound a unique identity. Some credited builders of pre-amps include Barracuda, Jah Tubbys, Mostec, Lincolns, Links Audio and JoRed…

Large up MB massive. Don't forget about this coming up soon.

Essential to those interested in soundsystem / bass culture.

Heartical HiFi has been much talked about for long time when it comes to heavy bass and now the its all gone up a notch or two.

Those with a ear for this kind of thing and have reached the last two Wobbles may have notice the improved quality of our sound. Well you aint heard nothing yet as we will be giving it a thorough work out as we launch our newly built pre-amp. Hold tight.
