About This Listing

BROADCAST

Transformer coupled Class A Pre-amplifier

The Broadcast is a transformer coupled, discrete Class-A germanium pre-amplifier based on the classic broadcast consoles of the 1960’s. In the low-gain setting, the Broadcast can cover everything from sparkling clean boost through to transparent overdrive, all with a healthy dose of volume available to push your amp. 

The Broadcast features a specially selected Triad steel-core transformer and a Germanium transistor. Advancing the gain on the Broadcast starts to saturate the transformer and the pedal’s discrete circuitry, giving rise to a gentle and dynamic compression coupled with subtle thickening of the mid-range. With the gain switch in the high setting and the trim control wound up, the Broadcast starts to deliver heavier distorted sounds with a warm and fuzzy edge to them. The Broadcast covers a wide range of driven and distorted tones whilst remaining dynamic, responding well to pick attack and the subtle nuances of every player. 

Features:

  • Selected Germanium and Silicon transistors
  • TRIAD Magnetics steel-core transformer
  • BI Technologies potentiometers
  • Lumberg jack sockets (rated for >5000 cycles)
  • Heavy duty Alpha foot switches (wired for true bypass and rated for >30,000 cycles)
  • Each and every Hudson Electronics pedal is built by hand onto a high-end PCB.
  • Assembly, hand-wiring, testing and packaging is all done by Michael Hudson

Controls:

  • Low Cut - Attenuates the low-end of the Broadcast. Since this control lies at the front end of the
  • Broadcast’s circuitry, it is interactive with the gain controls.
  • Gain Switch - Selects low or high gain mode.
  • Gain Trim - Controls the gain level of the Broadcast. At higher settings the high-end of the signal is gently rolled off.
  • Level - Controls the overall volume of the pedal.
Power: The Broadcast requires a DC power supply unit (PSU) and can run at voltages between 9v and 24v; running the Broadcast at voltages higher than 9v gives it more headroom, output level and clarity. This is great for use with bass or when using the Broadcast as a clean pre-amp boost. Please ensure your PSU can supply between 9v and 24, a minimum current of 20mA and has a 2.1mm negative centre barrel plug. Any other type may damage your pedal. If you plan on sharing the same PSU with other pedals, we recommend using a PSU with isolated outputs, e.g. Voodoo Lab PP2.

Current Draw: Typically less than 20mA 

Dimensions: 105 x 120 x 60 mm
