Regent 150 Preamp

The Fredric Effects Regent 150 Preamp is an accurate recreation of an obscure East German preamp, using a charge pump to match the original voltage and real new old stock transistors.

The Regent 150 Preamp uses the preamplifier and EQ circuit from the Vermona* Regent 150K amplifier of the 1970s, a staple of Eastern block rehearsal studios, stages and bedrooms. When first prototyping this circuit I'd expected an interesting lo-fi curio, something punky, scrappy or perhaps thin sounding, however the result has far surpassed expectations. The treble control adds a clean sound which is glassy and precise, and the boosted bass is warm without being flubby. Overall the effect also adds a little welcome compression. Use it as an EQ, boost, or just leave it on all the time because it sounds so good.
