Two Notes Le Crunch Preamp
The guys at Two Notes continue to change the game with every release, the Le crunch Preamp is a brilliant alternative to a traditional amplifier and also works great in conjunction with one!
The selection of a preamplifier is the core of your overall tone and thus requires the greatest attention. When building a complete floor rig, only the very best will make the cut. The Two notes preamplifiers are a True High Voltage Design running internally at 200 volts to preserve the interaction between you and your guitar while working perfectly with your other effect pedals. The Two Note Le Preamp deliver the unique tube warmth, dynamics, and the musical compression from the amps we know and love, now in a more convenient pedal package.
Le Crunch combines the greatest tones of the classic British stack of amps that have defined Rock’n’Roll since the late 60’s. Channel A’s clean throaty voice is pure plexi heaven while Channel B screams move over, let there be rock! The A and B channels are totally independent, each with their own voicing and eq section: Bass and Treble on channel A, and Bass, Mid with Mid Sweep and Treble for channel B. On Channel A you will find a lower gain tube stage with a pre-gain EQ using a more vintage design approach, while Channel B offers more gain and a very powerful post-EQ (with mid sweep).
One of the awesome features of this preamp is the "Fusion" modes. by pressing both channel footswitchs together you engage one of two "Fusion" modes. In "Cold Fusion", the two channels are in parallel, meaning you can blend the cleaner sound from A and your more distorted sound in B to gain clarity and articulation. In "Hot Fusion", A and B are cascaded, meaning A can be used as a boost for B with both A and B EQ’s available to shape the result.
These Preamps are super cool and offer an exceptional alternative or addition your rig, be sure to check these out.
