Pre-amps are important and offer more than meets the eye. No, they aren't instant dazzlers like Fuzz, Modulations or Delays but you will hear the difference as soon as you stop using it. That is just scratching the surface on how important these pedals are for your tone. Gain structure, EQ and consistency are a few more reasons you absolutely need a high quality Pre-Amp pedal. Let's look at a few Rogue Guitar Shop favorites.
Designed as the ultimate tone shaping tool for a players pedalboard, the PRISM is a buffer, boost, preamp, EQ and overdrive all in one beautiful and compact stainless steel enclosure!
Much like an optical prism, which takes white light and breaks it apart into the different colors, the Jackson Audio PRISM takes your guitars natural tone and allows you to boost it, shape it and transform it into a new tone that is uniquely you!
Use it shape your tone, slam the front of your amp or add new dimension to your existing pedals, any way you use it, we believe the PRISM will be the cornerstone of your rig for many years to come!
The LIFT operates as an Always-On preamp pedal, being either in Buffer mode or Boost mode, switchable via the new soft touch footswitch. The Buffer is a truly state-of-the-art circuit, featuring a single Discrete Opamp powered by our new proprietary dual-rail power supply providing huge headroom and tuned for absolute transparency with frequency range from 30Hz to 25kHz. The Discrete Opamp gently ‘lifts’ the tonal quality without unwanted color, unlocking every nuance of your guitars tone with a musical, 3-D depth.
The Boost mode, activated via the footswitch activates the “Boost” gain knob and unlocks loads of clean gain! The LIFT MKII boost mode has up to a wopping 30dB of gain off of a standard 9v adapter thanks to our proprietary dual rail power supply that boosts the internal voltage to +/-18v for 36 volts of headroom. This industry leading headroom in a pedal allows us to give the LIFT MKII the most CLEAN gain on the market. It also means every nuance of your guitar and playing gets preserved with absolute fidelity.
Arrows was designed with the intention of adding an additional channel of gain to all your dirt pedals as well as brightening up neck pickups. It boosts midrange, tightens up the low end and makes the top end shine while adding some push to drive your dirt into blooming sustain with excellent harmonics. Its simple interface is no nonsense; a single control that will either boost or cut you signal. Use the Arrows to remove the muck from bass heavy fuzz pedals, push light overdrives into higher gains than you thought possible or even on its own to make your signal really pop with more pizazz. All analog, true bypass and handmade one at a time in the weird pit of Akron, Ohio.
