definitely a preamp

I purchased this preamp in order to use it as a "color" effect. I hoped it could give some warmth to the sound of the bass. Kind of a bass/low-mids bump and some hints of tube character. I can't get that out of this one.
I use active basses, so as it is the case with other pedals, the pedal was clipping at unity gain. Luckily there's a switch inside the chassis that gets the input signal to -15db.
With that engaged, to keep unity gain every knob must be pretty much full on. In such case the signal seems to be boosted in its own entirety, with very little characterization.
The alternative is to sculpt the sound with a mid scoop and bass+treble boost.
In this latter case the sound is pleasant; still on the treble side some digital distorsion can be heard with strong peaks (ie slapping).
So this pedal is not for everyone.
Construction quality is excellent and the pedal seems to be made to last.
I'd say the bass control here is the most powerful between the three bands.

Simple solution to and expensive problem.

It does exactly what you hope it would do. It sounds almost like an Ampeg. Of course they wouldn't put a full SVT inside a stompbox and sell it at a fraction of the price but it's certainly close enough to get a decent stage sound. All the controls work well to dial in the desired tone, the ultra hi/lo switches are a nice touch too. There is a little background hum when the pedal is on but that's easily covered with a noise gate and it can't be heard while playing.
As always you get what you pay for, if you want a true authentic Ampeg sound then go get an Ampeg amp, but if you're happy to settle for something close for significantly less cost this is your solution.

Abysmal
PtaliaHelicopter 09.11.2018
There's always a chance that i received a defective unit but i can only review what i received and this pedal is an absolute waste of time, money and materials. It's totally flimsy - really light, switches are like toys. The amount of noise generated when the pedal was engaged (rubbish footswitch as well) renders it completely unusable. In the process of returning.

I used to own a SVT ampeg and it was the Roll Royce of the bass amp to me. When there only couple buttons like treble, bass, medium, volume and gain you can be sure this is a great piece. This pedal now gives you the same kinda feel, it puts some thickness to your instrument. I love it. And a great price too
