The BBQ combines in an original and 100% analog circuit a high-end Buffer, Booster and eQualizer (= BBQ) in a small pedal format. Let's take a closer look at the three sections of the BBQ:
By using the internal DIP-switch you can select between an active high-end buffer circuit or true bypass operation. The LED "Buffered Output On" indicates if the buffered bypass mode is activated. These examples are only a small part of possible applications of the BBQ pedal. Especially in complex setups, the BBQ makes full use of its extensive features and fexibility and not only provides a better signal quality, but creates essentially more variability of the complete pedal board. The BBQ can be used in front of the amplifier as well as in effect loops. Its operation is always intuitive and self-explanatory, and the original circuit design delivers high-end audio performance with a signal-to-noise ratio in studio quality.
The Vahlbruch BBQ, a small plug'n'play secret weapon, is handmade with love in Germany. Enjoy!
This pedal is equipped with our unique "MagTraB" switching technology:
Inside the button a magnet is integrated which position is measured by a sensor on the circuit board. If the button is now moved, e.g. if it is pressed downwards, the position of the magnet will also change. The sensor measures this change without any mechanical contact to the button and the information is send via a micro-controller to a gold-plated relay, which then does the actual audio signal switching.
The advantages of "MagTraB" footswitches:
You can choose if the pedal powers up in "on" or "bypass" state.
To change the state:
Step 1: Unplug the power supply cable.
Step 2: Hold down on/off "MagTraB" button.
Step 3: Plug in again the power supply cable.
Step 4: Release on/off "MagTraB"" button.
DONE! The next time your pedal powers up it will automatically start in the other state.
