A high-quality 2-channel preamp mixer suitable for both live and studio use.

The D-TAR Solstice is a high quality 2-channel preamp mixer that blends virtually any type of sound source. The low-noise hybrid circuitry and internally adjustable gain from 0 to 24db make the Solstice blender preamp suitable for both live and studio use. Solstice is a perfect preamp for musicians looking to live-mix up to 4 sources such as piezo pickups, magnetic pickups, standard mics, and high output condenser mics.

D-TAR - Duncan/Turner Acoustic Research
Seymour Duncan and Rick Turner are two legends who spent years working with musicians, perfecting their tone. Seymour founded his self-named company in 1978 which has become well-known for its wide variety of guitar and bass pickups used by just about every name player from Billie Joe Armstrong to Angus Young. Rick co-founded Alembic, was president of Gibson Labs West Coast R&D Division, co-founded Highlander Musical Audio making piezo acoustic guitar pickups for Lindsay Buckingham, Ry Cooder, David Lindley, and Andy Summers, and runs his own Renaissance Guitars. Now Seymour and Rick are working together to create innovative products for acoustic musicians. Their D-TAR motto: "With respect to acoustic tone."

    As reviewed by Mike on 11/24/2010

    I have used many preamps and blenders and this ranks near the top. The price is right and the sound is clean. I suggest this for anyone in a live set up.
