    Single Channel. Adjustable gain. Number of filters. Speed control. Harmonic control. This is an analog sounding preamp with modern appointments. There's really two schools of preamps, which are the vintage flavored ones and the modern ones. Th…

    Wampler Pedals SuperPlex Distortion - "Very cool pedal - from Plexi to Modded 800"

    07/21/11

    This is a great pedal that can take you from Plexi tones, 800 tones to modded 800 tones. This pedal has those "Marshall" type tones in a little stomp box. It produces a very nice and extremely usable distortion sound into a clean amp. The pedal h…

    Langevin AM-16 - moosers's review

    02/01/11

    The Langevin AM-16 is a stereo set of microphone preamplifiers. I don’t know the origins of these, but they seem mostly to be found in custom forms and clones rather than the real thing. That’s what we’ve got at the studio where I work – an AM-16 t…
