Preamp/Buffer based on the legendary EP-3 circuit

With the Catalinbread Epoch Pre, the effects company from Portland, Oregon presents an authentic reproduction of the legendary EP-3 preamplifier down to the smallest detail. The fully analog circuit is built with carefully selected components, including JFET transistors and "Orange Drop" capacitors, and operated with 22 volts as in the original. Accordingly, the pedal delivers a large, broad sound that can be precisely adjusted using the BIAS and balance controls. The "Early/Later" switch can also be used to switch between the sound character of the early and later versions of the EP-3. In addition, the Catalinbread Epoch Pre provides a switchable boost, while two outputs transmit the signal to different signal chains or amplifiers.
