  • Canada Music Week Visitor: GGGarth Richardson

    Garth Richardson at Ward-Beck Systems

    During Canada Music Week, producer / engineer and Ward-Beck Systems console enthusiast Garth Richardson came to us with an upgrade request. His Ward-Beck Systems L3204 console, formerly owned by the renown Kill Bennedy,  needed more gain on the direct outs.
    Bill Kennedy - Ward-Beck Systems L3204 Mixing console
    Garth's attention to gain structure lead him to need 4dB more from the WBS-L_M470A direct line output, factory set to 0dB relative to -15dB in hand position.  After a visit at the factory we came up with a solution tailored to fit the M470A module.

    Introducing the WBS-L-GGGain add on for the
    WBS-L-M470 microphone pre-amp modules. 
    Ward-Beck Systems - GGGain designed for Garth Richardson

    The WBS-L-GGGain adds 4dB of gain to only the direct out.  It was important not to throw the busses out of alignment.  By replacing the R104 and R105, the use of a WBS Legacy inspired Booster amplifier design, the task is accomplished preserving the character of the channel strip Garth enjoys.  The design is very similar to that used within the M470 Mic pre-amp fader receiver.

    In order to be customer installed, a hole must be drilled into the PCB; luckily a spot without traces was nearby.  The WBS-L-GGGain has (7) leads that easily connect to the PCB for line in/out and power.  Ward-Beck Systems - GGGain designed for Garth Richardson overlaid on an M470 microphone pre-ampThe first production run will be this month.  Once they are test department approved, they will be install ready.  Several extra GGGain modules will be produced and made available in our new online marketplace.  We look forward to working on projects like this one for Garth and welcome others like it.   Ward-Beck Systems - First By Design.
