The Squire preamp pedal is suitable for running directly into a power amplifier, running into the effects return of an amplifier’s effects loop or for use as a booster/second clean sound when plugged into the front end of another guitar amplifier.
The single Tungsol 12ax7 runs at high voltage for a full, rich and dynamic tube sound. The 9VDC power supply (provided) is converted to both 6.3VDC for the tube heaters and 275VDC for the tube plates.
With controls for treble, bass and volume, as well as a 2-way mode switch, the Squire delivers classic American-style clean tones.
The first position of the mode switch allows the high-end presence to be rolled off, which can give better results when plugging into the front end of a guitar amplifier. When plugging directly into a power amp or effects return, the brighter second mode provides the best results.
Dimensions: 3 7/8” wide x 4 ¾” deep
