It is a small red pedals used for consistency to boost the sound of the amp on which we play, and also used to prampli. In addition, she serves as a direct recording PDAL online (DI). The connectors are simple, namely between an output and an XLR output for direct recording of mixer.
Feeding sefait either by a 9V battery (about 150 hours of autonomy) or an AC adapter (not supplied) type IBNA DC109 (shared).


The configuration is very simple, there are four knobs in faade "lo tune", "L Bend", "hi tune", "hi bend" and a switch on / off enables or disables the p dale. The edition of the sounds is easy and instinctive, but it takes a little time to find the right rglage This n'tant a lesser evil, it is necessary that man by himself RULES even a minimum! the manual is short trs, while English, but relatively straightforward.


Precision: this is not an effect pedals propore said, because in essence it does not change the nature of the signal, the Relva frquences Aiges or severe according to the SETTING THE user. Clearly, he adds a big EHJV amplification.

The ism is striking. In the first test of a marshall 30 watt, one felt the diffrence in the clear, but saturated c'tait less obvious. However, once plugged into my stack (or half-stack for the purists veterans) line6, we take a pie in the middle of truffles! take more serious dimension, The definition is better and the couple prsence / dynamic speaks last. Absolutely stunning! The gap with the Previous is huge, and just dye the pedals to realize the cot fade of the original sound.

My current config is a guitar Ibanez rgt42 (Di Marzio PAF Pro / tonezone), a multi-effects and a Korg AX1500G two bodies Line6 spider II. The branch is Xciter APRS multi-purpose, and directly in between the amp ... sidra is to your exact "all transistor" (with the modlisation pdalier), I have a power and a inspre DEFINITIONS clearly improved. Addicted to calm the lamps that do not believe in anything else, we must put things in place Whereas the budget, and in this case here, the sound is clean, not upscale, but really int Ress.

I am tempted to put 10, but it should leave a margin of hope for perfection.


C'tait purchase instinctive minded opinions and recommendations (especially amricaines). The commercial price gnral varied from 199 to 230 euros, but I got it for 150 with a new bass player not having had the utility. The price itself, as the whole guitar hardware today is plutt lev or even abusive, but from the quality of the product, the purchase will be quickly profitability .

However, I have not had the opportunity to test other pedals of the same ilk, but believe me it worth the dtour. To say that I do it again the same choice, it would prfrable to test other models, but it's even an excellent product that gives life to amp means.

Try to adopt it.
