Oxidizing of aluminium is a natural proces. During the proces of industrialized anodizing this natural oxidation proces is accelerated, and the outside of the aluminium is transformed into aluminium oxide. Anodized products have a smooth, mat-finished appearance, which offers long-lasting protection against corrosion. And they are harder and more wear-resistent than  non-anodized products.

Some double bass players like to use a condensor microphone to aplify their instrument.

A condensor mic needs an extern power supply of 48V though, called phantom power supply. And the Hevos 400C amp lacks a phantom power supply. From an electronic point of view designing a phantom power supply is a piece of cake. Continue reading

The amp is as small as its predecessor, the 400T, but so much lighter. That is the result of using a switched power supply in stead of a heavy transformer. And that makes a diference: the 400C only weights 1.8 kgs. Continue reading
