“Bolt Bender” is the ultimate in transparent equalization for electric instruments.  It features a passive Baxandall EQ circuit with bass and treble controls.  The 4 paper in oil capacitors include a Lightning Boy Audio signature handmade “Thunder Cap”, and are driven by a NOS 12AU7 tube for the most organic sounding equalization ever offered in an instrument FX pedal. 

For those looking for even more EQ options, “Bolt Bender” is expandable with the addition of a LBA “Sidecar Controller”. By connecting an optional controller, a variety of different EQ circuits can be accessed, turning “Bolt Bender” into a complete powerhouse of tonal manipulation. (Optional Sidecar is not necessary for normal operation)

The first LBA “Sidecar Controller” to be released at the same time as “Bolt Bender” is the “MikeyQ”. This three band inductor based passive EQ controller is very unique in that it is subtractive only; quite a different approach to equalization than what is currently available in other EQs.  The controls include; volume, high, low, and mid cut, mid Q (bandwidth) and a two-way mid frequency selector. Through the use of inductors and paper in oil capacitors, “MikeyQ” delivers ultra-transparent mastering-grade equalization with very low signal loss. Each Sidecar module ships with a connector cable built with Mogami microphone cable and Neutrick 1/4" TRS connectors.

Pricing and availability

“Bolt Bender” is available for $249.00 (US) and “MickeyQ” for $89.00 (US) exclusively through the Lightning Boy Audio online store ( Demo videos are available at

Lightning Boy Audio, long recognized for its outstanding recording studio equipment and equipment modifications, released the popular “Soul Drive” tube drive pedal earlier this year. Every LBA pedal is hand wired point to point and features hand- made paper in oil capacitors, NOS capacitors, and NOS tubes to provide exceptional audio quality for the most discerning musicians and audio professionals.
