Effectrode ships the Fire Bottle - a vintage tube preamp in a stompbox 01-Dec-10
Effectrode tells us that the Fire Bottle tube booster is shipping. Here's all the details directly from Effectrode...
This little booster is a
vintage tube preamp in a pedal that can be used as a clean boost on
lower gain settings or, when running at full-tilt, push your tube amp
into beautiful overdrive. It can add some grit and growl to thicken
and warm up your tone without loosing definition and clarity.
Additionally it features a selectable input impedance switch. This
allows fine-tuning of the resonant peak of a single coil pickup to
alter the fundamental tone. Two settings make it possible to shift
the resonant peak 2 to 4KHz down. This has the effect of making a
strat bridge pickup sound like a neck pickup or even like a
humbucker, for a thicker, fatter and fuller sound. This feature
combined with a wide gain range, Harvard tone control adds a huge
degree of flexibility to the sounds you can get out of a stock Strat.
This is a limited run of 100 pedals built and tested by me - so get
'em while the're hot!
All-Tube: 100% analog tube signal path based on a NOS Mil-spec subminiature 6112 tube.
Boost Control: ranges from 3dB (a little over unity, where the pedal can add a subtle lift to your tone) to substantial 25dB to push clean channels into tube overdrive.
Tone Control: Classic Fender 'Harvard' tube amp tone control.
Resonance Switch: Fine-tunes the resonant peak of a single coil pickup to alter the fundamental tone. Two settings make it possible to shift the resonant peak 2 to 4KHz down. This has the effect of making a strat bridge pickup sound like a neck pickup or even a humbucker for a thicker, fatter and fuller sound adding a huge degree of flexibility to your guitar tone.
