The SKYHAMMER is voiced for high gain guitar tones with the boost engaged, but also excels at classic rock crunch and smooth cleans with the boost off.
Housed in a sturdy black steel enclosure, set between two side-panels of finished birch. High-quality components are used throughout, including a regulated DC filament supply. Careful shielding and thoughtful circuitry layouts yield huge tone with a low noise floor.
Complete with Gain control, 3-band EQ, and Master Volume controls. High and Low output modes allow for instrument-level use with a standard guitar or bass amplifier, or run directly into a power amplifier. Running one of the PREAMP PEDALS into an effects loop return or the power amplifier input of a bass or guitar amp can completely transform the amp's sound.
The dedicated record output includes a speaker simulating filter with two levels of intensity. This allows for running the PREAMP PEDALS directly into a mixing board, tape machine, or DAW, without the need for heavy power amps or speaker cabinets. A foot-switchable overdrive boost provides instant transitions from clean to gritty—or, depending on the Gain and Master settings—from gritty to roar. Foot-switchable true-bypass switching also allows for stompbox-like functionality.
