This is a dual analog preamp tube pedal format.
- 4 knobs, 1 switch (low or high volume) 2 lamps, bypass, 2 red LEDs.
- 2 inputs / mono outputs (independent circuits can be coupled to double the preamp mono source, its huge mega at the turn).
Enchassé all in a sturdy metal case as some other pedals brand.
This is the basis for a preamp / distortion for bass.

UTILIZATION

Very simple configuration, a pedal, you plug the source of inputs, outputs what you want (except toasters and stuff), the knobs, the switch and tweak until you turn has full;

SOUND QUALITY

This is a very versatile tool, I also use it in many cases, as do all preamp distortion or as nasty or as fatifieur sound. It's rarely happened to me to tell me "eventually no" once a source .. Basically: sampling, bass, drum machine, synthesizer, guitar, mpc or whatever you imagine.
Note the possibility of doubling the preamp stage, mono (the signal coming out of a circuit that feeds back into the other is recovered).
Note the presence of a switch input level that can serve as fatifieur.
In short this pedal calls for the establishment and fits everywhere, I plan to buy 2 more to have a big big big big sound to the mix, to see what it makes.

EDIT: Following the advice of an Italian sound engineer mastering, I first used on groups that pass the "drums", does it work so well since, I use a second, everything is patched to two pairs of groups in order to have a uniform on all of these groups: fatal!

OVERALL OPINION

I have a lot of pedals, but few preamp itself, although here, you'll understand that it's more of a Swiss Army knife that can warm your nicely fried to a brothel or downright impossible.
the occas ranges from 80 to 150, which is a very good price, I have the impression that the brand will adopt this model because it is less distributed.
