The Engine is a highly versatile and fully analog foundation preamp pedal with distinct voicing inspired by 60’s British classic amps and sounds. It covers all the classic overdriven tones on a variety of amps and can be pushed even more with our take on the classic Range(master) and a powerful EQ/Boost section.
Imagine having a quality, compact go-to pedal to cover all the classic overdriven tones on any type of amp with inspiring results. With that idea in mind, we have created The Engine – a highly versatile and fully analog foundation preamp with distinct voicing inspired by 60’s British classic amps and sounds.
It features two very strong & independent sections, designed to work perfectly with a variety of music gear, regardless of your playing style.
This unique synergy of dynamic overdriven foundation tone combined with a sparkling Range boost will give you a huge sonic world to explore.
Side A will give you that British flavored tube-like distortion which can be pushed even more with the powerful Range(master) control and versatile EQ/Boost section of Side B.
Before we explain The Engine’s functionalities in more depth, here’s a little amp history that we had in mind during the conception of this pedal:
Since the early 60’s, guitar players have been exploring all kinds of tube guitar amps. Most of them sounded nice and clean unless cranked and often they were still not loud enough for live performances. Many players liked that cranked amp distortion, but they also wanted more power.
The amps therefore became much bigger and much louder. It was a time when everyone played LOUD and if you wanted your amp to distort, you simply turned it up. Eventually guitarists added some kind of Boost pedal to hit the front end of an amp to get even more distortion. Those early amps are the sound of Rock’n’Roll and you can hear it on countless recordings. The only problem with them is that they don’t naturally distort on their own, unless you turn them up really LOUD!
This is where The Engine enters the game.
With mostly British, non-master-volume amps in mind, we have created a foundation preamp which allows you to get that cranked Tube-like distortion sound on almost any amp, but without the need to play at ear-shattering levels. It doesn’t matter whether you’re playing in your bedroom or a stadium arena, you’ll have that classic Rock sound ready to go at any volume!
