|The EM-Blue is equipped with a Nickel custom wound output transformer. This translates into Highs which will produce a much more airy top-end-ish tone.
Used with a dark sounding microphone or a alto vocalist it can produce a heavenly sound. You will also find this pre useful for recording a snare drum for a crisp crack sound. And if you use the DI Feature you just might want to hear what an electric guitar sounds like going thru the nickel transformers.
As with all the 500 Series Pres A Designs Audio produces, there is a -20dB PAD Switch. So, to get down and dirty with an electric guitar you will want to pad your input and crank the gain for a slight growl.
