The notice of Negens PREV summarizes the object.
It is therefore a distortion overdrive pedal / preamp based on the home Sunn Concert Lead. Oleg home Correct sound has made a specialty of recreating the legendary circuits of the brand. Stephen O'Malley SunnO commissioned models, you see the level ...
The pedal is very well made, solid, top components, to be open, the interior is super clean.
It's custom shop, when ordering you can choose your knobs, color box, the led, personal graphics ... you can do a light version without decals without painting, Oleg adjusts prices drop!
The black dot is that it runs in 18V AC. This requires you to have a special transformer (sold included) to power it. Exit the possibility of power via the power supply of your usual pedalboard. In any case I know of no power supply which can emerge from 18V AC in addition to standard 9VDC, 18VDC or 12VAC ...

Your fingers, ears.
Very versatile, it goes the more muscular soft overdrive until the distortion / fuzz massive.
While still very defined, especially in the lower frequency spectrum.
The contruction 18V allows for a lot of "headroom" dynamic. And a very high output level. Absolutely no sense of compression, often the default overdrive / distos for bass.
It sounds like Sunn, even grain, there's no picture. All this in a small box.
I use it mainly with the bass, but the guitar is still insane.
So versatile it would be two, or dual channel ...
I will not drop anytime soon, really the best distortion pedal I've tried for bass ...
No more than a bunch of other more known, and so much more versatile. It is handmade and made to order, counting the two months between ordering and receiving. Yeah Russia is far. But super monitoring, tracking number of the shipment, Oleg made it great. Sending is neat, packing top, a picture of your model on the boiboite numbered ... this is super exclusive.
The black dot (and only) what is the power supply.

Negens's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" THE KILLER!"
This is a preamp simulating a head Sunn Concert Lead circuit in pedal format.
This is analog and is manufactured in Russia.
No editing or MIDI or whatever. It works with old, turning buttons, to tweak with his fingers.
For the connection:
1 Input Jack
1 Output Jack
1 power PSU
And it is built like a tank!
Iwould have like a DI OUT, but whatever.<span class="skimwords-unlinked">.Maybe i'll </span>be in the future. (I submitted the idea to the designer, and is almost favorable to this idea).
There is no easier to understand than that.
For connection, it's simple.
Bass Return of an amp or console or interface.
A 3-band EQ, Bass, Mid, Treble.
1 knob for gain
1 knob for the rate of Distortion
1 knob for volume output.
Attention, this is a 18v supply to 24v AC.
Ordered on the site or Correct Sound or to design yourself (for those who can). Because it is quite hard to find elsewhere.
The activation LED is blinding. Take your sunglasses and self-tanner. I'm serious!
The SOUND. Folks!
I use it with my basses.

I did not know how Oleg did, but he managed to capture the essence of the Sunn Concert Lead into a pedal. This is more than realism there, that is witchcraft!
Already, the noise is very low for a gain that can go very far.
The frequency range is not limited. It can go very low in the bass.
The grain of the bass is very respected.
The dynamic is great. We did not feel the compression we have with the Tech21 VT Bass.
It's a Sunn sound, so it is very rich. Perfectly suited for Rock and derivatives.
I play in a metal band, and it fits perfectly.
The distortion does not cut the lows. This is what I find crap with the Tech21 VT Bass.
I tested it the Stoner/Doom manner , and that give you a great big mammoth sound from beyond the grave. Awesome!
If you like these styles, this is the pedal for you!
Used during a studio session with a sound engineer. He validated that the pedal had to stay in the recording chain!
Icing on the cake, as it is based on the Sunn Lead Concert, it works excellently with a guitar too! Well the old school! Always in style rock / stoner / doom. grimey stuff remaining the ambience of a damp cellar in which we can smell cold tobacco odors.
This is one month that I use.
I also have a Tech21 VT Bass Deluxe that I use now for the very few passages slap.
I also tried other preamps that I no longer have. None comes close to the eclipse.
What I like the most:
- The Sound
- The easy adjustments
- The strength
- And the sound too! (Ever said? I know!)
What I like least:
- Uncommon PSU
- The blinding activation LED.
The quality/price ratio is excellent!
The choice, I would do it again!
