Lightning Boy Audio unveils new plans
Lightning Boy Audio announces that he no longer produces effect pedal so that he can dedicate his activities to new projects.
As of March, Lightning Boy Audio effect pedals are (momentarily?) no longer manufactured. LBA is currently working on larger projects, such as his plate reverb (see this news) and a stereo passive EQ. A guitar amp project is also on the way.
The stereo passive EQ prototype is now finished, after 4 years of development. LBA says that the final product will be slightly different from this prototype (the power supply for example will be external), but the first details give you a good idea of what to expect:
- Carnhill transformers on both input and output
- Jensen transformer on the signal path
- Edcor power transformer
- Filter section based (and modified) on the Pultec EQP1-A with boost and cut controls for the highs and lows, Q for the high boost, on each channel
- Valve amp section with one 12AT7 per channel and zero-negative feedback push/pull control
As for the guitar amp, Lightning Boy Audio says that is will be limited to 5 to 10 units only. The prototype is a 30W Class A valve amp with a valve spring reverb.
