About the JHS Colour Box

In 1961 a British engineer would start a company from a spare room in his England home that would permanently change the history of the Pro Audio industry. This company set a trajectory for musical tones that spanned across genres and impacted every generation that followed. We are talking about the famous piece of gear known as the Neve* recording console.

From "Love Me Do" by The Beatles to the famous sounds of Led Zeppelin, U2, Spoon, Pink Floyd, Motown, Quincy Jones, Nirvana, Steely Dan, Neil Young, Tears For Fears, and Tom Petty (the list is endless), The Colour Box is our tribute to the legend and application of how a piece of gear can change music.



JHS Colour Box Features:

  • The Colour Box is completely free from any digital modeling.
  • Aside from creating these "direct in" tones, the Colour Box covers all the ground that you would expect a high quality studio preamp to cover.
  • Two gain stages in series that produce beautiful clean tones but that can also destroy any signal into a beautiful fuzzy mess, full of rich harmonics and body with over 39db of gain on tap.
  • Same topology and discrete gain stage found in the Neve* 1073, but have two gain stages in series instead of one.
  • High quality Lundahl transformer that adds weight, heft, and a 3D quality just like preamps that you will find costing much more.
  • Also blocking all DC voltages, adds electrical isolation, and blocks RF frequencies ensuring super quiet operation and noise floor.
