[NAMM] Orange Amplification Unveil Pedal Duo
After the Bax Bangeetar released last year, Orange introduce two new pedals: the Amp Detonator Buffered AB-Y and the Two Stroke Boost EQ.
Described as "probably the smallest active and fully functional buffered AB-Y pedal on the market", the Amp Detonator aims at solving the problem of running two amps. It features two low-noise linear buffered outputs, including one with a custom-designed isolating transformer meticulously engineered for transparency. This compact switcher also features phase correction, independent switches for A/B or both and a tri-colour LED.
The Two Stroke is Orange’s take on the essential ‘clean boost’, with the added benefit of a responsive EQ section. With 12dB of clean boost plus dual active parametric bands with 18dB of cut or boost, the Two Stroke can help fine tuning a lead sounds with a high level of control. The Two Stroke has been engineered for superior low-noise performance against any EQ-related 'hiss' problem, whilst its parametric nature provides a much smoother and more musical response when compared to a graphic equaliser. Originally aimed at electric guitars, it is also said to works great for electro-acoustic and bass guitars, making it a great addition to any musician’s setup.
Both the Two Stroke and the Amp Detonator can be powered by 9 or 12V and feature an internal charge pump, which doubles the operating voltage, drastically increasing the headroom (and meaning they will behave impeccably with other pedals in your chain).
