Preamp/Overdrive/Fuzz effect with motorized faders

The Chase Bliss Audio Automatone Preamp MKII combines Joel Kortes' impressive effects pedal magic with the sonic qualities of Benson Amps' preamp circuitry. The result is an extremely versatile combination of preamp and fuzz effect with extensive circuitry and a chic retro look. The sonic palette ranges from warming boost to creamy overdrive to destructive gated fuzz sounds. Thanks to the motorized faders including 3-band equalizer with selectable mid frequency and Q-switch with three different settings , you can adapt to your own sound preferences. The fuzz circuit features an asymmetrical germanium mode , balanced silicon sounds and diode clipping , while the fuzz switch allows you to choose between open and gated fuzz. For a variety of applications on stage and in the studio, the Chase Bliss Audio Preamp MKII features 30 internally accessible preset slots , 5-pin connectors for MIDI control and an expression pedal connector for intuitive control of individual effect parameters.
