Studio Electronics Amp is a two-stage Class A discrete design using three pairs of hand-matched transistors. Envelope is usually applied to ST 1/1. ST 1/2 goes through an attenuverter and can be used for envelope or modulation. ST 2/1 goes to the second stage and is typically used for volume control. ST 2/2 goes through an attenuverter and is typically used for modulation.
Amp is a Class A circuit and draws more current from the +12 rail than from the -12 volt rail. If the system power supply is undersized, hum or buzz may be heard. In that case, larger filter capacitors and/or a larger power transformer will be needed.
Four attenuation pots control the INPUT, STAGE 1/2, STAGE 2/2 and OUTPUT, delivering smooth, detailed and complex expression.
Switch it up

Patch it up
Six patch points — INPUT, ST 1/1, ST 1/2, ST 2/1, ST 2/2 and OUTPUT — direct the deepest manipulation.
