Strategy V2 is a highly powerful two-channel guitar preamp pedal with an overdrive mode, based around an audiophile-grade Burr Brown Op Amp. In ‘Preamp Mode’, Strategy can range from unity volume to a staggering 30dB boost, delivering enough volume to slam the front end of your amp for an incredible, fat and articulate overdrive. Toggling the switch on the back engages ‘Overdrive Mode’, adding subtle to substantial grit when riding the volume knob. Its elegant tone stack (present in  both channels) allows you to perfectly sculpt your signal, making it an excellent choice for an “always on” pedal. As part of our Pickguard Series, choose from a variety of finishes, pickguards, knobs, and hardware, creating your very own custom preamp. An all analog shot of adrenaline!
