Great preamp for such low price

Buket, 13.03.2018
I record some stuff at home by using M-Audio M-Track and laptop beside my pedal board, roland x-cube and Tele. Up to now I ran output on x-cube into M-track but somehow the sound was not enough for me, specially distorted sounds were too weak. After investigating for a solution, buying a preamp would be the best since I would place it into my pedalboard and I could play guitar in anywhere without an amp.

I compare some preamp pedals with different brands, as far as I see (hear), Harley Benton American True Tone is as good as the other shining but too expensive preamp pedals. Considering the price, this pedal is the best one.

Finish / look:
Knobs are not loose, they are a bit tight which makes a good control when you are changing them. If you accidentally hit, probably the value of the knob will change a too little. The feel is very good when you are operating them. The body is very strong. Only battery cover is not fully stick to the body.

Sound:
It has 3 EQ, 1 Level and 1 Drive knobs, like most of the amps have. What I love is the Voice knob: It gives control on mid range that you can get a variety of Fender amp sounds. (Particularly use this pedal if you love Fender amps, otherwise you need to choose the other Harley Benton pedals) By changing level+voice+drive knobs together, you will feel different kind of overdrive effects. I use another overdrive pedal to boost this pedal and the result is very good.

What I don't like about the pedal is a small change on voice drives you to adjust drive or level knobs immediately.

To conclusion, this pedal positively surprised me and the quality of sound is beyond my expectation. If you have a little budget, I highly recommend this one over the other brands; they are expensive than 5 times but will not give you 5 times better quality.

If you like those vintage fender amps you will love this pedal.

08.03.2017
This pedal is modelled from the Black-Face amplifiers which include the Deluxe Reverb all the way through to Tweed Fender amps.

You can get those clean and dirty, tube saturated tones made famous by the classic fender amplifiers.

It can be used in front of an amplifier or direct to a PA system.

If you use it in front of a solid state amplifier, this pedal can make your overdrive/distortion/fuzz pedals sound much better if you put it after them in the effects chain.

This pedal is really amazing!
