Get Modern Innovations On Classic Sound - The Shelford Channel
Over fifty years in the making, the Shelford Channel is the definitive evolution of the original technologies in Rupertâ€™s classic console modules like the 1073, 1064, 1081 & 2254, thoughtfully advanced and refined for the 21st century studio. The Shelford Channel is built around Rupert Neveâ€™s first new transformer-gain, class-A microphone preamplifier in over 40 years, the â€œbest-of-the-classicsâ€ inductor EQ section from the Shelford 5052, a tone-packed Diode bridge compressor, the analog power of variable Silk saturation, a new dual-tap transformer output stage for maintaining headroom or allowing the full driving of the Channel without clipping standard converters, and twice the operating voltage of vintage designs.
With richly-colored tonal options for making bold statements with your music, and precisely-engineered detented controls for recall, the vintage-inspired Shelford Channel maintains the soul of Rupertâ€™s classic designs with new levels of versatility, delivering what can only be described as the combined essence of fifty years of Rupert Neveâ€™s designs.
Like Rupertâ€™s designs from his time in Little Shelford , the Shelford Channelâ€™s preamplifier uses a directly-coupled transformer input with gain provided by the custom transformer itself â€“ a first in over 40 years for Rupert Neve. This new custom-designed input transformer, along with its careful integration with the surrounding circuitry, is critical to the Channelâ€™s bold and instantly recognizable character.
