Retro Instruments Powerstrip

Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $2,020$2,355

The Retro Instruments Powerstrip is an all-tube channel strip with line, mic, and instrument inputs. The mic preamp features a pull-switch gain knob which changes the tonal character of the preamp. A single channel Pultec-style equalizer, exactly one half of the Retro Instruments 2A3, features its own bypass and subsonic filter. The compressor is a variable-mu design based on the EMI-modified Altec 436, and takes input directly from the mic preamp's gain control rather than having its own threshold or input. The DI section as instrument input, output, and a Hi-Z through.

As with all Retro Instruments gear, tube changes require no special alignment procedures.
