$440 is your total cost here, and includes the power supply.

The Shift Line Olympic MkIIIS is the latest version of Shift Line’s bass preamp, that combines the classic tube sound with modern audio processing technologies, resulting in a true “Swiss Army knife” for bass players. Sculpting your signature sound and taking it anywhere you go has never been easier.

The Shift Line Olympic is a compact, full-featured bass tube preamp with a warm, deep, and characteristically compressed sound. Olympic’s universal connectivity allows you to use it in even the most complex setups, and it has an analog bypass circuit for the digital IR cab sim, and can be 100% analog when the cab sim is not engaged.

The IR based cab simulator is based on the Impulse Response (IR)  convolution technology, which provides a realistic and detailed sound, while preserving the character of the power amp, cabinet and microphone used to record the impulse.

Shift Line Olympic comes with 2 built-in cabinet impulses: SUNN 200s 2х15 and AMPEG SVT-810E 8х10. The microSD card slot allows users to upload your own cabinet impulses.

CONNECTIONS:

Shift Line Twin Connections

    • IN is the signal source input.
    • THRU is a buffered output for the unprocessed signal split from the IN jack.
    • SEND/RETURN is a series effects loop for external processing. The SEND out can also be used as an additional output.
    • OUT is the main output designed to connect the preamplifier to a power amplifier (RETURN or POWER AMP IN on combo amplifiers, INPUT on power amplifiers).
    • AUX IN is an external audio input (the signal from the AUX IN is only heard through the PHONES output).
    • PHONES is a headphones output.
    • BALANCED OUT is a balanced output.
    • POWER IN is a power supply input. Shift Line's U.S. compatible power supply is included. The power requirements are 12V DC 650mA.
    • MICRO SD is a microSD card slot. 

     

    CONTROLS:

    Shift Line Olympic MkIIIS Controls

      • GAIN controls input signal amplification. It can go from a crystal-clear sound all the way to a classic California-style overdrive.
      • BASS, MIDDLE, & TREBLE KNOBS constitute a classic 3-band passive EQ with a mild frequency correction effect, and a characteristic mid scoop at 400Hz.
      • MASTER controls the volume of the signal coming from the OUT jack.
      • VOLUME controls the volume of the signal coming from the PHONES and BALANCED OUT jacks. The MASTER and VOLUME knobs work independently.
      • TOP SWITCH controls the signal’s high frequency harmonic content. The “+” position accentuates the highs and the attack. The ”-” position provides a milder sound by cutting the high frequencies. The neutral position does not affect the signal in any way.
      • GND SWITCH allows to override “ground loops” that can negatively affect the signal when using XLR connections. In the lower position of the switch, the preamp’s “ground” is connected to the signal receiver’s “ground”. In the middle position, the “grounds” are disconnected. In the upper position, the “grounds” are connected and an additional filter is used to remove interference. The optimal setting of the GND switch is selected by ear: there should be a minimum amount of 50Hz hum and interference.
      • CAB SWITCH selects one of the two built-in cabinet impulses:

        • “A” position selects the impulse recorded from a SUNN 200s (2х15) cabinet.
        • Middle Position, cabinet simulation is disengaged.
        • “B” Position selects the impulse recorded from an AMPEG SVT-810E (8х10) cabinet.

        When using a microSD card, impulses are loaded from the corresponding folder on the card. The CAB switch affects the signal from the BALANCED OUT and the PHONES OUT but does not affect the signal from the main OUT..

      LOADING IMPULSES: Using a microSD card

      • Before using a microSD card, make sure it is formatted to the FAT32 filesystem.

      • When the memory card is used for the first time, a “Shift_IR” folder is automatically created on it. The folder contains two more folders (“A” and “B”, corresponding to the CAB switch positions) in which the default impulses are stored. To use external impulses, replace the default ones with your own files. The supported impulse format is 24bit 48kHZ WAVE PCM1, uncompressed.

      • To restore the default impulse files, insert a blank microSD card into the device. This will create a “Shift_IR” folder containing the default files. If no card is inserted, the built-in impulses are used.
