Made in the USA, this Electro-Voice EV Tapco 6000R mixer is in superb cosmetic condition and perfect working order. Rack-mountable, this 6-channel mixer with reverb features AutoPad, the patented input circuitry that delivers high performance under the most demanding conditions. In fact, when properly used, you do not have to worry about preamp distortion at all.
It just doesn't happen. The reverb tank drive system utilizes a Constant Current Bridging amplifier for the best reverb sound available. The high level line driver amplifier built into the 6000R will provide more than five times the necessary voltage to drive any power amp to its full rated output.
In a way, this is extreme headroom, but it just about guarantees clean performance, and it gives you the capability to easily drive any amplifier. CHANNEL VOLUME: Each of the controls marked VOLUME varies the actual gain of the channel's input preamp. All TAPCO input preamps incorporate AutoPad, which means they are self padding. BASS: This control provides individual low-end equalization to each input channel.The bass boost point has been carefully selected for use in sound-reinforcement systems. TREBLE: The high-end response of each channel is tailored by this control. Proper high-end equalization puts that clean, definite edge in your sound. EFFECTS: The effects output is taken from each preamp ahead of the bass and treble controls.
This provides an entirely separate, unaltered send buss from each input. The built-in reverb system receives its signal from this buss. This control also determines how much of the signal from the channel will appear at the EFFECTS SEND and MONITOR outputs on the rear panel. CHANNEL IN/OUT SWITCH: This Switch must be "in" to connect the channel to the rest of the system. This allows instant connect/disconnect capability for each channel.
MASTER VOLUME: This control governs the overall output level of the mixer. The MASTER VOLUME has no control over the EFFECTS and MONITOR outputs on the rear panel.
However, it does govern all front panel outputs, and the level at the stacking connector. MASTER EFFECTS: All functions of the reverb and effects buds that appear in the front panel, as well as the monitor output on the rear panel, are governed by this knob.REVERB CONTOUR: This function allows tailoring of the tonal qualities of the reverb signal. MICROPHONE EQUALIZATION: Most microphones and speakers used for P.
Systems are designed more for ruggedness than superior sound quality. Switch will overcome these deficiencies by providing 9dB more output level in the extreme high end of the audio spectrum, 20k Hz. This EQ helps you get that rich, crisp high frequency response.EFFECTS/REVERB MIX: This quiet, unassuming little knob on the rear panel greatly expands the capabilities of the effects buss. It lets you use any signal processing system phase shifters, echo, etc. Along with the internal reverb system. INPUTS: Connectors are located on both the front and rear panels. Any impedance microphone may be plugged into the mixer.
HI OUT: The signal that appears at this connector will drive any power amplifier to its full rated output. LO OUT: This output is a mic level duplicate of the Hi Out. It's especially useful if you are feeding a guitar amplifier or the mic input of another mixer.
Output impedance is approximately 5k Ohms. LEVEL OUTPUT: The signal level at this output is continously adjustable from zero to full output. EFFECTS SEND: These outputs, both hi and low level, are derived from the effects buss mixing amplifier. They are designed to drive signal processors, external monitoring systems, or any other system requiring a separately mixed signal.This buss can also be used to derive a separate mix. EFFECTS RETURN: This connector provides a return signal path for the effects device outputs. EFFECTS FOOT SWITCH: Connect any standard, i. Non-powered on/off foot switch to this connector for remote control of the effects buss. This will enable you to turn the reverb and/or effects on or off while performing. The signal from the effects buss is then fed only to the monitor send connector, and is not connected to the main mix buss. The level of the signal appearing at this connector is determined by the MASTER EFFECTS control. STACKING OUTPUT: The phono jack on the rear panel provides for interconnection between two or more TAPCO mixers. Combining two mixers with this connector provides twelve inputs with absolutely no loss of quality. The master volume control for each mixer remains the master control for that mixer only. This is an important advantage when you are submixing, like using one mixer for instruments and the other for vocals.
