A pedal version of the preamp section from a vintage Revox reel-to-reel tape recorder.

This standard edition Reel Deal preamp faithfully recreates the phenomenal preamp from a Revox reel-to-reel tape recorder. This version uses SMD parts and has soft touch switching, but is sonically identical to the Collectors Edition.

I have added a tone switch called "Tape speed" that either:

- allows full frequency,

- cuts some bass to focus on the mids, or

- cuts most bass to make a treble booster effect.


Additionally, there is an "overload" light that responds to the signal, and gets brighter the more distortion is introduced.

This circuit is really special and adds a lot of color and fullness. It sounds great with guitar, bass and especially vocals, lending a warm vintage texture to anything that passes through it.

The Reel Deal has tons of volume on tap, and can drive tube amps into beautiful feedback, just don't expect it to sound like anything else you're used to.

Includes poster and sticker.
