STICK PREAMPLIFIER
General Description
Dedicated to the needs of the Stick® musician, the SP 13
Stick Preamplifier is a full-featured package specifically
suited for instruments with two pickups. The SP 13 provides
two signal processing paths: both optimized for passive Stick
pickups. These paths feature very high input impedance for
extended low bass response. Additionally, either channel
accepts dynamic pickups or line-level outputs from outboard
preamps. A convenient front panel slide switch allows choice
of which pickup is wired to the tip or the ring of the stereo ¼"
input jack. Handy pickup Gain trim controls feature large
openings for quick changes using guitar picks, fingernails or
coins. And separate pickup Overload indicators make gain
set-up easy.
Each pickup signal path contains an Invert switch, an
adjustable Low Cut filter, a 7-band graphic equalizer, a Pan
control and a separate Level amplifier, all logically arranged
along the front panel using smooth-acting oil-damped sliders
for the ultimate in convenience and graphical feedback. The
Invert switch allows the user to invert the phase of each
pickup relative to the other. The sliding Low Cut filter helps
eliminate troublesome thumping, rumbling, rubbing and other
unwanted infrasonic frequencies. The graphic equalizers give
you separate timbre control over each individual pickup. The
Pan and Level controls mix both pickups into one smooth
stereo signal ready to drive the Send/Return effects loop, or
the in-line Inserts. Two pair of high-current cross-coupled
balanced stereo line drivers, with Mono switch on the rear
panel, complete the processing chain. Choose between the
stereo ¼" line-level outs for amplifier feed or the stereo XLR
mic-level outs for direct console patching, or use them both.
A powerful Headphone amplifier and Master Mute switch
allow private auditioning and practice. The separate Tuner
Output routes both Inputs to a mono output for easy tuning of
both pickups with a single tuning device. When an auxiliary
output is necessary, the separate unbalanced Aux Output with
Level control perfectly satisfies the need. An additional
Expander Input allows a second stereo processed signal to be
returned to the Main Outputs. This means that each pickup
can be processed independently and mixed together for stereo
applications.
The SP 13 Acoustic Preamplifer is all you ever dreamed
of for perfect control and integration of your Chapman Stick
(years of practice not included).

Application Information
Several interesting things distinguish the SP 13 from other
instrument preamplifiers.
STEREO ¼" INPUT
Referring to the block diagram above, first note the
convenience of having an input switch that automatically
reverses the role of tip and ring on the ¼" Input jack. This
saves you the trouble of having to rewire your plug just
because it follows one tradition or another. The Input accommodates standard electric guitar type pickups (magnetic coil
designs – humbucking or otherwise). In fact either Input
handles this type of pickup directly, or accepts the line-level
outputs of outboard preamps (belt or instrument mounted).
TUNING
The fixed Tuner Output connects to the A and B Pickups
Input. This Output is not affected by the graphic EQ. The
Aux Output is similar except located post-EQ and has it’s
own ‘A’ Output Level control. Neither of these outputs are
affected by the Pickup Level controls.
RETURN B
EFFECTS LOOPS
Each input channel as a hard-wired Send used to process
the preamplified and equalized signal. Signal can be sent
completely through the effects unit with the dry/effect
balance being programmed into the processor, then returned
through either the Effects Return or the Expand Input. The
dry signal can also be passed through the channels individual
Output Level control and panned in the stereo field.
EXPANDING & OTHER INPUTS
The Expand In jacks provide a means for returning a
second processed signal or other stereo audio source. There is
no level control for the Expand Input, so use of a device with
adjustable output is recommended.
MAIN OUTPUTS
The SP 13 uses high-current cross-coupled differential
line drivers for each of its balanced outputs. Normal balanced
line-level applications use the ¼" output jacks with 2-wire
cable terminated with ¼" TRS connectors. Unbalanced linelevel interconnection uses standard mono ¼" jacks without
gain change or signal loss. For direct console connection the
XLR outputs provide a low-noise mic-level balanced signal.

Architectural Specifications
Effects Applications
The Inputs shall contain two channels accommodating
instrument pickups terminated in a single ¼" TRS (tip-ringsleeve) connector. Each input shall have an overload LED,
input trim control, phase invert switch, low cut filter, sevenband graphic equalizer, pan and level controls. The main
outputs shall implement a stereo level control and mute
switch, terminated in balanced 3-pin and ¼" TRS connectors.
An output mono switch shall be provided.
¼" TS stereo send and return connectors with level
controls shall be provided. A ¼" TS tuner output, ¼" aux
output, ¼" TRS insert connectors and ¼" TS expand input
connectors shall also be provided. A headphone amplifier
shall be built-in with it's own level control.
The unit shall be a Rane SP 13 Stick Preamplifier.
Application 1 - Standard configuration. Use separate effect units for
the Melody and Bass by wiring as shown above. Use the desinated
'mono input' on the effects unit. Turn the Pickup Level off to play
through only the effect processors and have them program the wet/
dry signal.
Application 2 - Bi-Monaural. In this configuration there are two
separate mono signal paths, allowing connection to two separate
ampifiers, one for each side. Pan the Melody to the Left and the
Bass to the Right.
