Used Chase Tone Secret Preamp Guitar Effect Pedal BNIB. Brand new in box pedal - unused. Perfect condition. Tested by our team.

The Secret Preamp provides a slight boost to a tube amplifier and you’re in complete control of the EQ for different rigs and rooms! When ON and left ON, the Secret Preamp can be used as a ‘BIG 3D TONE’ enhancing your “normal tone” especially for overloaded true bypass pedal boards. (The industry standard of buffering can ruin the dynamics and feel and sound shrill.) The Secret Preamp IMPROVES tone and signal response over just plugging in a single guitar cable to your amplifier.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Echoplex tape echo delay units evolved from tube based designs into solid-state designs. Notably, the EP3 model was a solid-state model and had a few variations and revisions to the circuit. A select number of EP-3 models are highly sought after by musicians for their unique musical tone. Famous musicians of the era and later realized having the EP-3 in their signal altered their tone, even when the echo was bypassed. An internal secret preamp was at work here, boosting and fattening the signal, along with a slight phase shift that alters mid and high frequency harmonic content providing a transparent warm boost – a truly secret preamp boost in the arsenal of the great guitarists of yesteryear!
