The Ares Preamp is a reproduction of the EP-3 unit in bypass mode. It uses a charge pump to get 18 or 24v from a 9 or 12 volt source. There is also an output buffer on the end (adapted from the ClinchFX EP-Pre) that preserves the tone but gives it a much lower output impedance than the original.

This kit contains the PCB and all necessary parts. The enclosure can be selected, please select one knob for 6,3mm shaft separately.

5 from 5 Super produit, je lutilise tous le temp

Cette pédale est géniale. Soit pour booster une autre pédale ou un canal crunch, soit pour salir un clean. Seul bémol, une grosse différence de volume suivant les réglages du switch, mais je laisse 5 étoiles,

3 from 5 Not perfect but the tone is special

Im on the fence about this one. The gain on mine doesnt even reach unity when every control is cranked, and the LED is very dim. But it has a sound of its own that Ive found to be useful when recording.
