Catalinbread Epoch Pre Amp Buffer Guitar Pedal

Calculated at checkout

The only Preamp Buffer you'll ever need.
Our Epoch Pre was modeled after the exact preamp circuit from the original EP-3, from the 22v power supply to the JFET preamp, to the circuit loading contributed by the echo function. Not only does it provide boost it acts like a mastering plug-in on the master fader - making your whole pedalboard sounds bigger, lusher, wider, the Epoch Pre can bundle all the frequencies without squishing them like a compressor!

Epoch Pre Features:
 Exact EP-3 preamp replica.
 Accepts standard 9v pedal power supply but converts it to 22v internally.
 Epoch Pre has two outputs to drive different pedal chains or two amps.
 Discrete silicon transistor buffer, high headroom.

Belle Epoch Deluxe: An Introduction (30:31)
In this Belle Epoch Deluxe introduction Howard's explains the design process and circuitry of the Belle Epoch Deluxe and Epoch Pre. The new Belle Epoch Deluxe will give you a bigger, warmer, and more dimensional sound. Howard reproduced the circuit of the EP-3 exactly, mirroring the schematic of the Echoplex with the same power supply, preamp, record amplifier, playback amplifier, mixer stage, and feedback loop. The only difference is that there is no record or playback head. In its place is a digital delay line. The Belle Epoch Deluxe is the closest thing you'll get to a vintage EP-3 without the tape! Belle Epoch Deluxe does not compromise on sound! The video also touches on some of the sounds capable using the 6 Echo Programs available on the Belle Epoch Deluxe and expression pedal function!
