The PA-1 is an ideal entry-level linestage (or exit-level for that matter!) for a truly minimalist approach. Designed & built by Dusty Vawter, this “preamp” functions as a volume control (it’s fully passive) until the volume control hits the 1/2-way mark. At that point the dual-mono HC-1b power supply kicks in and provides the necessary gain as a true preamp.
