Manley Voxbox  ...Manley – Manley Voxbox Combo
When Manley created the VOXBOX Combo voice processor they decided to pull out all the stops and make a truly professional high-end statement. One that covered the needs of the project songwriters and big-time major studios alike. One whose all-tube signal path could bring every instrument and overdub to life. One that, plain and simple, sounded unquestionably better than the rest, provided flexibility, simplicity, and thought-out ergonomics Microphone preamplifier section: The mic preamp is a clone of a highly regarded and popular mic pre: the Manley Mono Microphone Preamplifier! The mic input transformer is Manley’s own design wound in-house at the Manley Labs factory. High current 48V Phantom power is switchable from the front panel. A simple and effective passive BASS CUT switch kills rumble and reduces popping. The VOXBOX’s INPUT ATTENUATOR is a variable pad control situated before the first tube stage allowing the preamplifier to accommodate +4 line level signals via the balanced LINE INPUT and instruments via the front panel 1/4″ DIRECT INPUT. These inputs are selected in the middle position of the dual-function phase invert switch. Manley provided both transformer balanced XLR output as well as a transformerless “audiophile” 1/4″ phone jack output. The Gain switch is actually a clever variable feedback control that changes not only the gain but the slew rate and flavor of the circuit. With it you can choose how laid back and mellow or how up-front and aggressive you want it to get. See “Notes on Variable Feedback” for more info. Headroom is a strong point in this circuit, +31dBu capable. This is 5 to 10 dB better than almost all other pro gear. The music passes through only super-clean pure Class A vacuum tube circuitry. There are obvious advantages to Manley’s purist approach and foremost is the non-electronic final sound that carries emotion into the digital realm.
