Does What It Says On The Box

14.01.2017
The colour box does exactly what is says. Adds colour! My first act after unboxing was to patch my Minilogue synth through it. The sound became vivid and three-dimensional in a thrilling way. In the marketing literature for this box you'll find a lot of references to the Beatles' 'Revolution' guitar sound, but I found that break-up of that kind only exists at the very maximum gain settings. That suits me fine, because elsewhere on the dials you'll find a range of warm, full tones for a variety of gear, and the EQ is excellent. I'm looking forward to trying it out on all kinds of tracks in my studio, especially vocals.

Beautiful colors, good concept

13.12.2016
This is a very special effect pedal! Actually, I was looking for a good "transistor" preamp for recordings which is also relatively affordable. And that is exactly what I was looking for, a preamp in pedal form! The good thing is that you can use XLR output parallel. Very good for two tracks recording 1x through the amp quite normal, then with Mik. (Including effects) and 1x WITHOUT the fact that one takes the effects afterwards. So, that was the thought and the whole without the pedal from the pedalboard to have rausholen! So far so good.

The processing is good to very good. At the STEP switch is no nut that connects the Poti to Body, so the switch is only soldered to the board. If one accidentally occurs on it the board could be damaged. The LED glows violently, but like a small flashlight in the wrong direction and indeed in the face! Otherwise everything solid! In the packaging was a plectrum from Gravity JHS which I found very good! Too bad the Thomann does not exist! What is also good in the description is no power supply included but there is one!

To the sound. I was attentive to the pedal when I saw the pedalboard of a Russian guitarist. He used it as a preamp. Everything else on the net unfortunately says little about the characteristics as a preamp for the guitar, for which the pedal was built after mM also. What a pity. Since the pedal is simply just overdriven until no more! As if it were a distortion or fuzz.
Color Box sounds simply fantastic and without exceeding. Very nice colors Very thick mids, basses (which can be limited with Low cat). I play with Fender Strat over Fender Princeton, SIMPLY GEIL. So I use that as EQ! The only thing is that when you turn on a loud crack there. Luckily, I never turn it off! So it would not be usable as a tusk! Because after switching on (directly) there is a nice BANG.

One of the best of my pedals! Unobtrusive but noticeable! By the way, the same for vowel! (Of course also for bass and just everything!) I also know no longer what the cost has, no longer interested me! ))
