Satellite Amplifiers Bass Eradicator Tube Preamp

Maker: Satellite Amplifiers

Model: Eradicator Tube Preamp

Condition: New

 

Description:

Based off our tube Eradicator pedal, we tweaked the circuit, and added a dedicated Line Level XLR DI output in addition to its normal 1/4" output.

Internally, there is a 12AX7 tube, running at real amplifier voltages (off the supplied 9v WallWart).

Brought back from days gone by, the Eradicator pedal has risen again! 9 years ago, Satellite made a preamp guitar pedal for a friend. Every once in a while we would put out small batches of the original. Everything was hand cut, and hand wired, very labor intensive, but for a very enjoyable product. A few months back, we decided to revisit the original, and find a way to make it better, and more accessible.

A true Satellite tube guitar preamp in foot pedal form. Internally, there is a Sovtek 12AX7WB, cascading each gain stage into tubal goodness. The pedal operates on a 9v wall wart (minimum 500mA), but delivers close to 300 volts of DC for the plates of the tube, just like inside of our amplifiers.

All Eradicators come included with a wall wart power supply.

Controls are Gain, Tone and Output. Bottom plate is removable to swap tubes.

The all steel enlosure is made just for us, and is one of the most durable foot pedals we have ever seen. Powder coated for longer life. The switch portion is ramped for ease of switching.

Sonically, the gain goes from country cleans, to metal gain. The tone control is a high pass filter, giving similar variations as a tube guitar amplifier does. The output can be made to give a small boost, to a heavy hitting punch.
