The Schatten Mini-Pre 2 is a compact, lightweight, two channel belt-clip preamp with dual volume controls. The Mini-Pre 2 is only 1 inch thick, 2 inches wide, and just over 3 inches in length (25mm x 50mm x 80mm) and weighs just 4.5 ounces (125 grams) with a battery.
Schatten has kept things simple with the Mini-Pre 2. When you're on stage there's a limit to the amount of stuff that you really want to have to deal with. So they gave the Mini Pre 2 a volume control for each channel, and that's it. This preamp features clean, crisp sound amplification and an even, flat response. Runs from a standard 9 volt battery (not included).
The Schatten Mini-Pre 2 is tough enough to take years of stage abuse. The Mini-Pre 2 is built into a rugged ABS box that is more than tough enough to stand on. The Mini-Pre 2 comes complete with a sturdy belt clip that installs on the preamp in a minute, so you may use to clip the preamp to your belt or strap, or hang it from your mic stand or music stand.
The Mini-Pre 2 has a stereo 1/4" TRS input jack, and a standard 1/4" mono output jack. If a 1/4" mono cord is plugged into the input, then only Channel One will operate. Channel One will preamp a pickup, and Channel Two will preamp and supply power to a condenser mic. Channel 2 can also be configured for a second pickup instead of a mic, by simply repositioning a jumper on the circuit board. Trim pots on the circuit board allow setting preamp input gains from 0 dB to 20 dB for each channel independently.
