The Soviet Pentode is a true Class A tube saturation Colour Module. The Soviet Pentode is built with sub-miniature, military grade, USSR made, NOS thermionic valve.
The Soviet Pentode can operate in Triode or the Pentode Mode. Each mode offers different Saturation characteristic which results in different tonal results.
The Triode Mode has lower gain, produces mainly second harmonics and the sound is warmer, more mellow.
The Pentode Mode delivers 3dB higher gain, overdrives much quicker, produces more of 3rd and 5th harmonics and the sound is more bright and crisp.
Both Operation Modes add natively accuring tube type compression.
The Module does not use any DC/DC converter and does not contain dangerous high voltage.
Input Impedance: 10k
Gain: up to 4dB – Pentode Mode
Phase Reverse: Yes
Power Consumption: 30mA

I took a moment to try them on stems. The Soviet Pentode is amazing!
Perfect to add that tube amp like breakup on a clean guitar track for example.
The Line Driver seemed to be the cleanest of all three.
I definitively need to try the different jumper configurations. Would be interested to have your opinion on this one !
