What is the EP+

The ClinchFX EP+ is is based on the enormously successful ClinchFX EP-PRE.  The “front end” is a standard EP-PRE common-source JFET preamplifier which includes the ability to select EP-3 early or late serial number tones.  In the EP+ there is a second JFET boost stage, similar to the EP-PRE circuit, but with reduced output impedance.  Regardless of the reduced output impedance, this second stage is an active boost stage, not a unity gain buffer.

One advantage of reduced output impedance is that the EP+ can drive longer cable runs without losing high frequencies.

The internal charge-pump voltage doubler power supply allows the EP+ deliver up to 18db of clean boost.  The exact amount of boost available depends on how hard you drive the input of the EP+.  As with any amplifier circuit, excessive input levels will cause clipping, but when driven to clipping, the EP+ creates a softer type of clipping, unlike many other solid state circuits.

A big plus in using a boost stage instead of a buffer is that the pedal retains the tone enhancing qualities of the already successful EP-PRE.

 

EP+ Features

Volume Control

With the Volume Control fully anti-clockwise, there will be no output from the EP+.  As you turn the control in a clockwise direction, the output will increase.

Stomp Switch

We have these switches custom made to our specification, which includes gold contacts for maximum reliability when switching very low current in pedals.

PCB

As with our other pedals, the PCB has a full ground plane on one side to improve noise immunity.

Power Supply

The EP+ pedal operates from a 9-12V DC, Centre Negative power supply that has become the standard for most pedals.

The EP+ has the same Charge-Pump power supply that has proven successful in the EP-PRE.  The charge-pump converts 9 Volts to more than 17 Volts, or 12 Volts to just over 23 Volts.  At either voltage, careful selection of the JFETS used in the pedal ensures plenty of headroom for clean boost.

Warranty & Returns

All New products are covered by the manufacturers new warranty. Please check their website for the length of warranty and warranty conditions. If an item you receive is faulty get in touch with us ASAP. Second Hand products come with a 4 week warranty from us. If there is an issue let us know ASAP! This covers normal use and does not cover accidental damage, misuse, wrong power plugged into it, modding, water damage or any other damage caused by mistreatment. Just treat it nice and all will be good!

Shipping

We send A LOT of packages every week so don't worry about the shipping side of things!

We've never lost a thing and your awesome new gear will be packed up really well to avoid any damage in transit.

If your order comes in before 2pm we will ship it same day. Most of the time we pack things up all the way to 4pm so just call if you need it to leave same day after 2pm.

We ship mainly with Australia Post but may use a courier depending on location and size of the package.

Free Post ships with Australia Post standard and expected shipping times are between 4-6 business days depending on location. It will be longer to outside of metro and rural areas.

Express Post will usually be with you next business day in metro areas of QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and TAS. WA will take 2 days to metro and extra days after that to out side metro and rural areas.

Everything we ship has a tracking number with the exception of some power cables and smaller envelope packages. You will be emailed tracking once your order has been shipped!
