Caveman Audio AP1 Compact Acoustic Guitar Preamp


A world-class studio-quality preamp for your acoustic guitar, in a pedal format!

As with all Caveman products, the AP1 Compact Preamp's mission is as simple as it is complex: to create a preamp for acoustic guitarists that sounds great and takes away all the hassle. Think of issues that arise especially on stage, such as interference, noise, impedance problems and humming power supplies. To achieve this, only the highest quality and indestructible components are used in the design, from the transformers to the connections to the housing.

With the AP1 Compact Preamp, not only these obstacles are a thing of the past; at the heart of the unit is an ultra-high-end studio-quality preamp that brings out the very best in your acoustic guitar. Whether you're using a piezo element, a built-in microphone or a combination, the AP1 converts its output into a crisp, detailed balanced signal that won't compromise on expressiveness even in the largest venues.

The connections on the AP1 are simple, but effective. At the back you will find a Hi-Z input for your guitar, a Gold-Plated Neutrik XLR DI output, a tuner output and a DC power input that can handle voltages from 9 to 18 Volts. The footswitch activates the tuner output and mutes your signal, so you can tune your guitar in complete silence. And not unimportant: Like all Caveman products, you have a 10-year warranty on the AP1 Compact.
