7. Koch Amps LB120-II/4

Koch Amps LB120-II/4

Load Box II

4 Ohm Version

Old tube amps without a master are known to be loud when cranked up to the “sweet spot”, but also amps with a master volume sound their best when the power amp has been put a little bit through its paces. The result in both cases however can be a sore set of ears.

Here a power attenuator can remedy that. An attenuator overcooks just a section of the power so that the power amp still works according to the sound you’re going for, but the speaker takes only some of the impact. There’s no compromise to the sound, but your ears, bandmates, the audience and maybe even the guy operating the mixing desk will be thankful.

The LB120-II has 6 outputs via which you can control the volume and still achieve a hearty sound in smaller rooms without getting a headache. Adding to that, a frequency-corrected output and fan cooling aid straightforward use live and in the studio

DI Box

  • With speaker simulation, reactive load, attenuator (power reducer) and headphone output
  • 16 MESA’s own cabinet impulse responses in two banks with 8 presets are preinstalled
  • There is enough space in the processor memory of the CabClone IR to download and store a huge library of IRs from other manufacturers
  • The internal reactive load offers a safe option for an amplifier with up to 150 watts of power to dispense with loudspeaker boxes or the internal loudspeaker and to send a DI signal silently to the audio interface or mixer for recording and live
  • The built-in attenuator (power reducer) enables the volume of a connected box to be adjusted to suit the situation and the selected speaker simulation
  • The 16 cabinet simulations / IRs can be accessed directly via MIDI program change commands
  • Controls: Input Level, Presence, Output Level, Attenuation -Inf to -16dB, Attenuator -16dB / -12dB / -8dB / -4dB / -0dB
  • Switches: Cab Select, Bank Select, Ground / Lift, Phase
  • Load impedance: 16 ohms
  • Power supply via an 18 VDC power supply unit (included)
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 191 x 114 x 168 mm
  • Weight: 1.8 kg
  • Made in USA

Connections:

  • Line / Inst: 6.3 mm jack
  • From Amp SPKR Out: 6.3 mm jack
  • TO SPKR: 6.3 mm jack
  • Midi in / out
  • DI output: XLR
  • Line Out: 6.3 mm jack
  • Headphones: 6.3 mm jack

Note: Please make sure that the impedance at your loudspeaker output matches the impedance of the CabClone (16 Ohm)


33. Fryette Power Load IR

Fryette Power Load IR

Load Box

  • Variable reactive load box connected to an analog Zero Latency Cab and microphone simulation and a digital IR loader
  • Allows silent recording of a tube amplifier
  • Analog emulation and IR loader can be used individually or simultaneously
  • Cab simulation can be deactivated to use an external impulse response (IR)
  • 16 Pre-installed Cab-Sims, which can be modified via the supplied GUI
  • Additional Cab-Sims can be installed via the USB port on the front
  • Placed between amp (max. 200W) and box, the signal can be sent directly to the mixer with one or both Cab simulations
  • High quality headphone amplifier
  • Amp In with selectable input impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms)
  • AUX input with -20dB pad: 6.3 mm jack
  • Transformer-isolated direct output: XLR and 6.3 mm jack
  • Output with cab and microphone simulation: XLR and 6.3 mm jack
  • Headphone connection: 6.3 mm jack
  • Dimensions: (W x D x H): 222 x 156 x 70 mm
  • Weight: 3.6 kg
