Today we bring you an in-depth look at the Humboldt Preamp SE Parallel Compressor and Transformer Boost from Niche Devices!!
Humboldt offers optical compression coupled with a high headroom preamplifier and features the unique usage of a vintage audio transformer. Humboldt’s circuitry is very low noise and has ultra-transparent gain staging with practically no risk of op-amp clipping due to the power provided by the built-in charge pump circuit.
The compressor side is a classic two knob style that is forgiving, natural and warm. The preamp section has a tasteful shelving equalizer to cut or boost high frequencies subtly without affecting tone in any other stage.
Fully blend-able signal from 100% compression (wet) to 100% preamp (amplified dry) and everywhere in between; providing unrivaled parallel compression. Humboldt brings the studio to your stage rig in an intuitive and user-friendly package.
The transformer featured in Humboldt was carefully reclaimed from a vintage mixing console. This high quality unit has a 1:4 step up ratio with mu-metal core. Engaging the transformer adds boost and color to the final sound, breathing life into your tone.
Humboldt Preamp is a capable tone shaper that can subtly and transparently sweeten tone in an “always on” configuration. It can also be pushed to extremes and used more as an effect. The headroom and volume capabilities of Humboldt can be utilized as a clean booster or even overdrive a low wattage tube amp.

Thanks for your continued support, and remember, these videos are intended to show off the PEDALS and what they can do, not what a brilliant guitar player I am - there are plenty of shredder videos out there, and besides, I'm really a drummer :)
