The Transmission Preamp pedal is based on the preamp circuit found in the vintage Yamaha BB1200 basses that were made famous by Peter Hook from Joy Division and New Order.

The preamp is based on the original on board pre-amp with slight modifications to make it pedal friendly such as power filtering.

Controls include: Boost, High, Middle, Mid, and Low.    The 3-band EQ is identical to the circuit which was on the original basses.  We also added an output boost circuit to the pedal to help compensate for any volume drop that may occur if some of the frequencies are cut in the EQ section.

Although the preamp is intended to be used with bass, it also functions exceedingly well on guitar.  Boosting the mids gives your guitar tone a great mid-boosted crunch. 

The pedal uses a standard boss-style 9V power supply and can be run at 18V for additional headroom.
