AMT R/S-Lead

Effects Pedal for Electric Guitar

Die AMT Bricks Series of tube preamps are based on the sounds of other famous models. They can be used with an amp or a power amp, and if multiple preamps from the same series are thrown into the mix, they can communicate with each other! That means, if a preamp is switched on, then the other preamps in the series automatically switch themselves off. In this way you can put together your own multi-channel preamp setup.

Innovative design, mediocre sound
Gloamingdan, 11.06.2020
I bought this preamp to add some new tube overdrive sounds to my studio arsenal. I watched some product videos and decided to go for this pedal as I like both soldano and mesa sounds - that this piece should deliver.

Pros:
The pedal is built like a tank, it's small, compact and using it is really straightforward. The EQ section works great and even though the controls are small, they are accessible. A lot of good engineering ideas have been packed in here.

Cons:
The docking feature is weird, there is a hole in the bottom of the pedal and you can see the circuitry when looking through it. It's definitely not recommended to use this without a pedalboard. Once a beer or water is thrown / kicked on the stage the device may be doomed.

The pedal is quite noisy and harsh on higher gain levels, not sure if this is due to a broken tube or the design, but I didn't want to void the warranty by disassembling it. The two channels S and R are just too similar, the headroom is small and the sound is quite weak. Misses body and punchyness overall. The preamp section in my 5150 LBXII beats this pedal by lightyears.

Summary:
Really nice approach to building a compact preamp, but the sound quality does definitely not match the price tag. I am going to return it, but I'm interested to see future AMT products.

Volle Röhre im Format einer Streichholzschachtel
LutzW, 27.01.2021
Der Zufall wollte es, dass ich auf einen Bericht gestoßen bin, der von diesen kleinen Tretern berichtete. Bei YouTube habe ich mir dann ein paar Videos angesehen und war beeindruckt vom dynamischen Röhrensound des R/S Lead. Die eigen definierte Anlehnung am Sound von Mesa Boogie und Soldano ist nachvollziehbar, auch wenn der Umschalter das nicht wirklich realisieren kann. Bei Mesa Boogie hat der Sound einfach nur etwas mehr Bässe. Aber - klingen tut es trotzdem sehr gut. Die Preamp-Funktion arbeitet sehr wirksam und der Sound lässt sich damit individuell gestalten. Die enge Anordnung der Regler macht die Einstellung jedoch nur eingeschränkt zum Erlebnis. Wenn sich AMT die Grundmaße der Boss-Treter als Maß der Dinge genommen hätte, dann wäre die Bedienung inklusive des Schalters deutlich bequemer. Alles in allem aber ein interessantes Pedal für alle Röhrenfreaks.

Justo lo que buscaba
Carmanout, 25.06.2020
Es un pedal increible tanto como preamp como overdrive. Es un gusto el sonido que tiene, la maniobravilidad que tiene, y lo cómodo que es. Es muy pequeñito, lo cual a mi me gusta ya que entra en mi pedalera perfecto, entiendo que para otros puede ser más incomodo, pero es una cuestión de gustos.

Tiene un sonido increible y ha sido de las mejores compras que he hecho nunca. Ni una pega.
