Guitar preamp that emulates the sound and feel of a classic American tube combo

Break out of that mushy mix! Let your cleans ring like a bell or go into full bluesy overdrive. Classic Fendery amp tones with the historic 2-knob tone control that together with the gain knob can boost your sound into aggressive territory while raising string definition

All that is followed up with an optical compressor circuit designed to emulate a sagging GZ34 tube rectifier, a saturated output transformer, and over-loaded voice coils & speaker cones for that ultimate small combo experience.

Give your clean channel that bold, bright attack and sweet articulation of rock, blues, rockabilly, surf, and country music's formative years, or stack it with your favorite drive pedal for a solo boost that cuts and sings.

The Twangophile is a lovely take on the early Deluxe amplifier's normal channel and goes from mild, mostly-clean to aggressive, smokey blues or jazz.

The Twangophile responds very much like a tube amp would to your pickup volumes and to the impact of running other effect pedals in front of it.
