About This Listing

Last one! In stock and ready to ship!

By popular demand! I've partnered with Kevin at Aion Electronics to produce a limited run of these using his pcb, enclosure and L5 name badge. All other parts and components are meticulously sourced by me using the highest quality and tolerances available: Aluminum knobs, 5% Metal film caps, Switchcraft jacks, pcb mounted pots (Alpha) & switches.
From Aion Electronics:

"This is a faithful recreation of the preamp section of the Lab Series® L5 amplifier designed by Moog and marketed from 1978-1981 that is widely considered the best and most tube-like solid-state amplifier ever made. It has two channels which are both fed into a shared distortion/master volume circuit as well as a compressor/limiter.

The original amps had the preamp integrated with the power amp. By splitting out the preamp, we can use this either as a normal pedal in a chain (e.g. tuner → overdrive → L5 Preamp → modulation / delay → amp input) or as a true preamp by plugging its output straight into a power amp (either a dedicated power amp or the “return” jack of an amp with an effects loop). The main difference will be the volume you run it at. This thing is capable of enormous volume, far more than any stompbox, so if you are using it like a pedal, don’t feel like you are doing something wrong by keeping the master volume down really low!"

Each pedal comes fully assembled, calibrated and tested and includes packaging and a 9 volt 1000mA AC power supply. 

Please check out the included YouTube video I did with the fine folks at Reverb.com for an idea of what this pedal is capable of. My words really don't do it justice. 

I am meticulous in my work. I pay attention to the details. Still not convinced? I guarantee my work until the end of time! That's right - if you should ever encounter an issue with the craftsmanship on my build, I will repair or replace free of charge! I don't strive to be the cheapest. I strive to be the best! My reputation speaks for itself. We've modified and repaired gear for professional musicians - including members of Megadeth, Anthrax, John Mayer, Bruno Mars, Counting Crows, Joe Walsh, Tracii Guns, Devon Allman, Jake Shimabukuro, Lucinda Williams, Wilco and Smashing Pumpkins. Buy with confidence!
