    Format preamp pedal
    1 lamp
    1 clean channel with the volume and EQ
    1 channel Crunch / Lead with EQ and volume common

    UTILIZATION

    easy after trimming and balancing of the 3 channels but little changed

    SOUNDS

    with good trimming is just get the sound to suit everyone on one of the 3 Channel but if you want to use all three on the same piece there is not much margin

    OVERALL OPINION

    good value for money if you want to be better cough up more and still not say

    3-channel guitar preamp (light crunch and lead), tube (Sovtek 12AX7 WA on mine). Equalisation standard (bass, middle, trebble) separate clean and crunch / lead. A small switch to select three types of gain curves for the crunch (in the ear is not super obvious ...); each channel has its own gain control.
    The connector has an input, an effects loop (send / return), an output amplifier and a simulation output with HP to directly attack a strip (of a quality to die for, I never heard a something like that out of my monitor speakers !!!). In fact we are left with the equivalent of an amp head without power section to plug directly into the console! Except that it weighs about 200g and is......

In fact we are left with the equivalent of an amp head without power section to plug directly into the console! Except that it weighs about 200g and is the size of a wallet! (Compared to 23kg rectify my head!)
    Power is separated and supplied (12V, 1.25 A) (for the curious), no battery compartment.
    Fun for a little sticker "made in west siberia" stuck on the back! It's not every day!

    UTILIZATION

    No on / off: one branch and it turns; settings ultra simple, you turn, you play, you play, you play ... it's a treat just how this little box makes you want to never stop . It rings with almost all settings, connected to an amp or console (still staying smart: gain in depth and all zero except acute screaming ... it's weird right?).
    The manual does not much ...

    SOUNDS

    Well here is the huge slap in enormous Bought without trying it (trusting extracts found on the web) I was nervous ... That said it was the last of the stores with the seller told me she was going like hot cakes ... so no worries resale to predict.
    The guitar is a PRS Dave Navarro with two doubles splittable.
    The sound clear enough right, precise but very warm, very reactive, we feel the lamp every time the pick. Good compression natural treble equalization sensitive enough but does wonders (see below). Overall it is ideal for heavy funk, jazz, country, type crystalline arpeggios. At the very end of the race of the gain (between 8 and 10) are emerging a little crunch that is super friendly module in the attack and brings a nice warmth to the sound.
    the crunch: the 3 modes of gain curve are still rather obscure to me but who cares, we get a super smooth and silky crunch at will, it drools, it screams, it drips and yet all your notes and all your intentions are quite distinct: a treat!
    lead sound: there I no words to describe this thing is sheer madness! A gain incredible, big compression, bass most accurate from beyond the grave, and carved a sharp edge and a medium that You balladent a chainsaw as well Pantera (in much warmer) to the impact his mortal seriously it takes the guts! Harmonics fly from everywhere, just waiting Feedback from ... (you got a bit of slime there, oh yes thank you!)
    equalization: it is super accurate and efficient frequency bands affected are special: the work of hyper acute and severe acute hyper-serious, the medium work the whole body of your sound: it is hyper efficient and it allows sounds to be very roots is ultra modern broadband
    edit: actually I just realize that the equation works like a filter: you got to 0 is not at all! I had never seen before is super powerful!
    PS: the best is that all the configuration silence is royal, not a pet of breath even lead to gain ground (include owners of 5150)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 4 days but I feel that I will not part with it anytime soon (for I began to look against my head Dual Rectifier funny !!!).
    Likes:
    Format-foot (fits in a pocket)
    The 3-channel, none of which has been neglected (they have not staked everything on the saturation, the light is of equal quality)
    -Equalization of madness
    Output-offset that ensures (I never heard anything like it): the coup in concert can not repeat or spell the pedal board (exit head and cabinet backs and MIDI which is plenty of room) .. .
    -Build quality
    Effect-loop quality

    I like least: ok let's go for nit-picking
    - The buttons are super close together (given the normal format) and turn very easily hit with my big sausage fingers I change often another knob as described ... and I discovered his other great ... not so serious fact
    - They should have it out before
    - If they let me go (hard to imagine given the construction type panzer Siberian) I make up a severe depression that I found another! (I will take a second backup)

    The price ... € 240 for sure that in times of crisis it's a little evil, but because it is so unbelievable that it will sell € 700 anyway! So it's cheap for the sound it makes and the service it provides.
    Of course I would do this choice with his eyes closed.
    If you find a solution anywhere portable preamp do the impasse on the SS20! I have not compared with the Blackstar HT Dual (one EQ and 2 channels for € 180) or T Rex Spin Doctor (740 € and poorly adapted to the metal) ... but I am filled with filled.

    It can indiffremment or out at the same time on a console / computer sound card or a real amp. Jury Mention for the simulation of HP to go out on console, it is most excellent.

    The three channels are all quality scabies:
    - Clear the trs is really clean and harmonic crunch lgrement the end of the gain knob, but good.
    - The crunch begins beyond the clean background and frankly the best overdrive sound that I know (and yet I have over a dozen jou OD pedals at least: TS, OD Boss DS SD DN FDR , Vox, Marshall Jackhammer Guvnor BB). It is smooth and warm as it is not allowed. Gnial. Rock and Blues background or Hard vintage.
    - The lead is stiff and compress it right, its modern plutt and a foot switch to switch quickly from trs crunch to lead to a solo. But for the lead, I prfre an SD-1 or BB-2 mode boost the crunch channel, a matter of taste. For cons, the punk or grunge, it is at the top.

    The legalization is great and it is not his job very easy in a few seconds / minutes to find his sound.

    I branch on all types of amps: the Danelectro Honeytone 1W lamp at Peavey Classic 50 through a Vox AC4TV and a Fender Champion 600 All Tube, a micro cube or a Vox DA5. And it sounds to ALL! ring ring i i i sounds, including a PC or Mac.
    So, we can play the same very heavy on a small Fender Champ 600 or a Vox AC4TV in the apartment with the volume, while having the sound, without sticking to the ceiling for the neighbors to saturate. And with the effects loop and its legalization, it fills the lack of functionality of these great little amps lamps without dnaturer of all their original sound, even in the rhaussant.

    I jou top with a Squier Deluxe Stratocaster, an Epiphone Sheraton II Fully rquipe in Gibson, a Squier Tele Custom II with P90, a Danelectro Dano 63 and lipsticks, a US Start RI57, a Start 80ies Jap ... Ben and i ring i ring i ring, and it complies with the particularity of each shovel I think.

    Ct default:
    - It is not battery powered (280V lamp over, but would be difficult to connect 100 times its weight in batteries)
    - The knobs move very easy and changing a rglage a hurry, it is likely that you move as those of ct. on the other hand, they are good even in low trs of lights.

    Dernires comments:
    LEDs are powerful and well-trs shows which channel you are.
    I have not used the switch that changes the gain curve, I have not found the usefulness or flagrant Difference ear.
    There is an effects loop!
    There is almost no wind except bottom lead, and again, adpend your guitar and pedals in the effects loop. Used only as a great (with reverb it would almost itself), not a fart noise.
    In short, as the name SS-20 makes clear, this is a small pramp nuclear missiles.

    It is apparently difficult to find trs, but if you get your hands on one, charged ahead.

    See other review for the technical details. A preamp pedal comprehensive format.

    Only regret: the non-switchable effects loop.

    3. HP emulation output sound card and headphones

    In all cases it is very easy to get a more accurate sound in moments. No need to book. The difference between the knobs is sufficient.

    No worries blast, including a lamp with more gain (JJ / Tesla ECC83). Cons by replacing the lamp, but not that difficult, impractical, it's really a millimeter, large fingers go rowing.

    The effects are in the loop series, silent too.

    Rating: 9 - RAS.

    SOUNDS

    It has 3 channels:

    Clean: I like very much, very much alive, not cold, fits perfectly with my EMG 60. Maybe a little cruncher, or to become nastier with good overdrive. In any case, do not hesitate to push the gain.

    Crunch: here it goes under. Perhaps because of my change of lamp ... It definitely lacks something in the midrange. I prefer the clean with the crunch OD. on the other hand to latch the crunch with OD gives a very nice result on rhythmic metal.

    Lead: very very nice. Primarily used on metal rhythm is a bit more compressed than OD + crunch but the result is nicer I think (and prevents tap ^ ^) goes over it. To lead it goes perfect. Big headroom. Please note that from 2am on knob gain, the distortion from the lamp is supported by the clipping diode. The lead channel with my guitar volume down also replaces the crunch channel.

    The simulation of HP is not bad, much better than many simus like this, but not worth an IR convolution. In this configuration, it is perfect for recording.

    Rating: 8 - Damage to the crunch. Not bad but not great.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Finally, excellent pedal, metal-oriented (that's good!), Which completely caught me after my post crisis downsizing Axe FX.

    Final score: 9 - The average score above.

    What type of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?
    Lamp: 12AX7. Originally fitted with a Sovtek I replaced by a TungSol ECC83, a change that has greatly improved the sound of the pedal. For 30 €, is a modification that I highly recommend.

    What is the power delivered?
    No idea, it is not stated in the manual.

    What connection?
    An instrument input.
    A speaker output
    An output amplifier
    FX Loop (thank you TN)
    Switch 2: 1 to switch from channel to channel light crunch / lead and to select the crunch or lead channel.

    1 channel Crunch / Lead with 3-band EQ, Gain, Volume 3 positions and a button to control the frequency curve of the crunch.
    An effects loop

    The pedal is powered by 12V and 1500 mA. It takes the place of 2 packs of cigarettes. Solid construction. The lamp is well protected but changes quite easily.
    Apart from these positive points, a volume control Lead / Crunch separate was a good thing.

    9 / 10


    UTILIZATION

    The setup is simple?
    Yes. Simple as a pre-amp. The settings are effective.

    Do you get a good sound easy?
    2 uses:
    - In distortion pedal (using the amplifier output): no. And we can not get a good sound to me. I come back later.
    - In Preamp: yes but you have to spend some time on the equalizer that reacts to the Micro-quarter turn.

    The manual is clear and sufficient?
    Yes, in English, but it&#39;s OK. This is a pamphlet (a more practical book in my opinion). There are patterns of connections, the circuit diagram, advice on use. On this point, AMT is very professional approach and a "boutique" interesting.

    10/10



    SOUNDS

    Will it fit your style of music?
    Yes. I&#39;ll burn that draws from rock as well as to heavy metal to pop and he still comes out in 2 cases.

    With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    I tried it with LTD MH400 and low (!) PLO.
    All plugged directly into:
    <ul> the return of an amp via the speaker output Valbee
    Sound Card Edirol FA-66 via the speaker output or output amp with IR </ul>

    What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
    By using pre-amp: you get a very wide range of sounds. The light is beautiful, not at all despite the cold EMG81/85 my guitar. The crunch and lead are also very believable. Lead is full bodied, very dynamic and not "fiddle" at all. It sounds really great in return, a console or a sound card. Very credible and there is no such effect "over-mixed" found in the Pod and simulation software (which are also very well this will work). In short: flexibility, credibility, responsiveness and sound gear in the game
    To get an idea:
    title to which the bass / guitars are recorded with the AMT SS20, output amplifier, using impulses via Kefir, no EQ, compressor have been applied: https://tinyurl.com/35w6mfw ( )
    a title on which the guitars are recorded with the AMT SS20, exit HP, no EQ, compressor had been applied: https://tinyurl.com/2ug4gb4 ( )

    In use distortion: it really sounds like the m *****. Saw earlier opinions, I doubt the quality of my ears or they are those of others. Maybe a hardware issue. But for me, with my setup, the sound is ultra strident, shrill, completely flat, cold, crappy and completely uninteresting. I had a lot of distortion pedals including Boss who sometimes bad reputation, but had their charm. Here there is none: imagine a Boss Metal Zone with the treble at max and the mid and lower than 0.

    A word about the effects loop: very convenient, it is even necessary. Indeed, I find that the modulations sound much better if they are plugged into the loop rather than facade.
    The pedals are intended to be necessarily connected in front (pitch shifter, filter) are well received by the AMT SS20.

    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate
    I summarize: SS20 AMT is an excellent preamp, but a distortion pedal completely sucks. It&#39;s not for nothing has the AMT as a pre-amp!;)

    7 / 10


    OVERALL OPINION

    For how long have you been using it?
    4 months but so intense!

    What thing do you like most/least about it?
    Extras:
    <ul> the sound quality of the preamp
    the output quality HP
    Price
    effects loop
    size </ul>
    Cons:
    <ul> the lack of a dedicated control and lead to a dedicated crunch rather than one dedicated to two
    the use distortion pedal </ul>

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    In lamps without preamp. But I had a Pod XT, lots of distortion (Boss, Digitech, Ibanez, Maxon).

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    Sincerely good. I do not know blackstar models but this one really tears.

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
    Yes without hesitation.

    Amt Electronics SS-20 Guitar PreampPublished on 04/06/11 at 11:31
    This is a great little unit that will get you a solid rock guitar amp tone in a pint size box. Not to mention how portable this thing it is fantastic. It is very smooth and rich in its tone that makes notes just jump off your guitar neck.

    The Features of SS-20:
    - High-grade high-voltage feed of triodes.
    - Complete elimination of operational amplifiers traditionally used in hybrid preamps for sound amplification and processing.
    - Application of special semi-conductor amplifiers modeling triode-based harmonics and providing signal amplitude necessary for high-grade valve operation.

    - Complete elimination of operational amplifiers traditionally used in hybrid preamps for sound amplification and processing.
    - Application of special semi-conductor amplifiers modeling triode-based harmonics and providing signal amplitude necessary for high-grade valve operation.

    UTILIZATION

    The architecture of SS-20:
    –Two high-grade channels CLEAN and DRIVE with the possibility of Drive-channel operation in two basic modes: moderate sensitivity (CRUNCH) and high sensitivity (LEAD).
    – Effects Loop Send and Return.
    – Operation via both direct unaltered signal for guitar amplifiers heads, combos, and speakers (OUTPUT jack) as well as speaker cabinet compensated output for mixing consoles, computers, or other recording devices.

    TECHNICAL INFORMATION:
    Power: External Adaptor AC 120V 12V DC .8A (included)
    Tubes: 1 x 12AX7 Incandescence - 12.6V (6.3V)
    Anode Voltage: DC 290V
    Jacks: Amplifier Output - for Combo Connection
    Mixer Output - for Mixer/Recorder Connection
    Effects Loop Send and Return
    Input In
    Bypass: Left F Switch - DRIVE effect on/off
    Right F Switch - DISTORTION effect on/off


    SOUNDS

    The thing that is great is that it sounds extremely natural and articulates the notes very well. If you are on a gig where you don't have a amp or you have to use the house amp which is usually garbage then I would bring this thing along and plug straight into the mixing console. It is portable and on a last minute notice you can grab it throw it is your bag and head off to the gig. Another operation is that many players have to travel to gigs and don't have the comfort or lack there of to carry their half stacks and this is something that will do you right in a jam.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This unit is such a great tool for gigging musicians who needs something portable and handy that can go anywhere and even on a plane. I know where guitarists have to rent a Marshall head or something where they make appearance and there is no need for that if you have a pocket amp like this one.

    At new they come at around $350 which is great for a little preamp. You could probably find it cheaper on ebay or something. Great buy for the money.

    This is a 3-channel tube preamp, the size of a pedal ... good pedal, good size ...
    Level connections, it is in the basic ... Input, Output / Output emulation with HP ... and send a return rather convenient!
    RAS ptits guys TN went to the basics, and we expected no less ...

    Small downside, however, avecc food "specific" (requires 12V) power supply thus more in the bag ... but hey, we live with it ...

    UTILIZATION

    Level configuration is designed as a classic amp ... 2 buttons for switching, channel clear channel crunch and overdrive channel. However, an attention button for switching to the crunch saturated, so better not be wrong ...

    As for the button, rather well done, maybe a bit tight ... So it is better to its setting, quietly ... I do not venture too much of a modified live a full knee to the "one ".... again

    Sounds obtained relatively easily, as long as you have already used the EQ to tweak an amp ... But not rocket science ...

    The manual, I do not have open ...

    I find it really convenient to use, put on your desk, and connected to the soundcard, I can play with headphones all night without disturbing anyone, and with a pure sound quality ... one imagines, also for scenes of modest size at which point it may be convenient to have the preamp in his jeans pocket ... (Well, need a big pocket, but in a baggy fit AC!)

    SOUNDS

    I read here and there that the sounds were of the Fender crystal clear sound for up to Mesa for the bass distortion, through Vox to Crunch ...

    Well, then I say, do not get carried away ...

    For my part, I think the clean sound lacks a little fishing ... and we must push the button to gain 3 / 4 for the record ... and that, whatever the guitar (Gibson or Fender ...), but hey, once the volume properly adjusted, I find the clean sound, really good, fairly precise and crystalline.

    The crunch sound is very pleasant, I find it versatile, and really respect the character of the guitar, and also the attack, it can quickly climb to the edge of bad crunch / overdrive, really stunning ....

    Finally, the distortion, it is really good, AC is sending, it can be guts, but always accurate ...

    EQs are precise, and working them can quickly approach a great sound!

    The original lamp is a Sovtek 12AX7. I changed to a ECC83 Tesla, the (good) advice of a AFien on the forum. And the sound is really gaining in heat ... Not that the original is missing, but there was one really made warmer, and I found many prcécis than the original, and all this for 12 € .. .



    OVERALL OPINION

    I have now for over a year ... and I'm happy ... I thought to part with it, at a time when I was doing some cleaning in my pedals, but after reconnected ... Impossible! I, I keep it.

    I admit to not having tested other preamp in this format, but I tested enough amps for short, to know that this pedal is really great! (Relatively speaking ... of course ...)

    It is difficult to find a fault ... otherwise the price, me at the time I paid € 350 ... okaz but today it is found in the 200/250, so it's more a fault its price too ...

    I resigned without a problem! A thank you (bsolutely) M (erveilleuse) T (echnology)!
