Many folks have been asking for a preamp that can push their music production “over the edge”. Well, here it is!
This dual pentode preamp has 2 tubes per channel, one for clean gain and the other for overdrive. You can go from pristine clean to even harmonic drenched sound thanks to the dual stage overdrive. A special combination of a JFET transistor and a pentode makes the breakup even smoother than the tube by itself. And a 3-position pre-overdrive filter helps clean up the muddiness that often results when too much bass hits an overdrive circuit. First, drive the second tube to your liking, then blend it in with the clean signal, and, voila!
