Peterson Preamp - Power Supply / Output Box

135.00

Here it is, the Peterson version of our power supply / distribution box. Enough people had been asking us about this one that we finally made some. Most of the features are the same as our Janus box but there are some notable differences. Most importantly we use a quality third party power supply and moved the switching and fuse to the box. So while it's a little busier on our pretty blue casing you can also switch the preamp on and off while sitting at your Rhodes. Another nice benefit is that we can sell it for a bit less than its 5-pin cousin. So here are the features.

Features:

  • Isolated & Overbuilt AC power supply for Ultra-quiet operation
  • High Grade / German Made 4-PIN plug
  • High Quality USA Switchcraft 1/4" outputs
  • Stable power supply with multiple safeties
  • Hand-riveted mounting clip for ease of use and no scratches
  • Over 8' of cord length from outlet to Rhodes
  • High grade Japanese-made fully shielded and braided copper signal cable (grey)
  • 1 year warranty on the power supply
  • Handmade and fully tested by Avion Studios in the U.S.A.

Power supply: We use a high quality power supply, fully tested and burned in.  Most importantly it is housed in an independent enclosure. The biggest benefit of our design over other models is a very old concept in audio engineering - keep the AC away from the audio signal. And that's what we did. We put 3 feet of shielded cable between them.

The power supply has a number of built-in protection circuits and we go one step further by adding a fast-blow fuse as a fail-safe. The power switch is mounted on the distribution box for ease of use and limiting the wear on lamps and the circuit in general. 

Distribution box: We wanted to make something attractive but also unobtrusive. It clips neatly and securely to the side of your Rhodes. The clip is heavy duty nylon/plastic so you don't scratch your tolex! We used a right angle gx16 threaded port to introduce the DC power supply. To ensure a perfect connection we sourced the best 4-Pin plug in production today. The right-angled plug and the short distance around the corner to the box keeps your keyboard unobstructed.

The outputs are dual-mono unless engaged with the vibrato in which case they will correctly produce the stereo pulse of that effect. Both outputs are American Switchcraft 1/4" jacks.

Testing: We compared our Peterson Power Supply to both original power/distribution and aftermarket supplies and it was by far the quietest.

All the connections are hand soldered with high-quality solder on professional equipment using the best parts available. Even something as simple as the clips are carefully affixed and then aligned before riveting to account for any variation from the manufacturer. We're proud to offer the RPPS as a better choice for studio, stage and budget.
