This preamp brings together five individual tone shaping sections in the form of a pre boost, distortion with two band EQ, a noise gate, 5-band parametric EQ, and post boost. The pedal also includes a bright switch, which enhances treble response by boosting the high frequency range. The two integrated footswitches control the preamp bypass and post boost functions, while adding an Ibanez IFS2L external foot-switch enhances the player’s control even further by also making the pre-boost and 5-band parametric EQ foot-switchable. From simple tone shaping, to crunchy overdrive and even the most crushing distortion, the Pentatone preamp covers it all.
