BHP MORN Preamp Profile Pack is based on the the Morin guitar preamp.

THE very rare Mike Morin handwired, point-to-point preamp from the late 80s/early 90s. About 18 were made and they never come up for sale since most reside in the collections of professional artists and studios. Mike's work is impeccable and his amps have been used on many pro recordings (XYZ, Velvet Revolver, Linkin Park, Strapping Young Lad, Staind, Chris Poland, George Lynch ,to name a few). Marc Diglio of XYZ played a Morin preamp on the album "HUNGRY". Thankfully, I have one, and my buddy Mike Toren has one as well. Both of these are profiled in this pack.

This preamp has a highly modded Marshall-inspired circuit with tons of available gain and EQ options. Mike himself will tell you his Marshall mods always sound like a modded Marshall, while his original designs have their own awesome thing going on. It rules for crunchy modded Marshall and saturated high gain Soldano/Friedman tones.

Features a high-voltage, all-tube design (four 12AX7s) with quality parts that deliver the most head-like tone and feel you can get from a preamp. Anodized aluminum chassis, and chassis mounted pots, jacks and tube sockets round out the build quality of this preamp. Also features four push-pull pots (gain, pre-amp, bass, treble) for tone tweaking, a three-way bright switch (up bright, down more bright), and a six position grind knob for fine tuning the mid content.

The gain and pre-amp knobs function as interactive gain stages that allow you to dial in the exact gain and feel you need. When pulled, the pre-amp knob tightens the low-end and drops the distortion level. The gain knob increases clarity and lowers distortion when pulled. The treble and bass pots both shift their respective frequencies higher when pulled.
