    Product Description

    Whether you know it or not, you've probably heard tape preamps all over classic rock records to add some extra grit and warmth. Famously used by Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore and David Gilmour. The Sir Reel adds that warm fatness, grit and a little extra shimmer you'd get from those old tape units in a convenient package. It also features a blend knob for you to mix to taste, allowing some of your dry signal to pass through, allowing you to retain clarity and dynamics, or blend it all the way out and saturate the front end of your amp with natural overdrive. Build in Germany with premium components and a sturdy metal enclosure, the Sir Reel won't let you down.

    Here's what FFX Pedals say about the Sir Reel Tape Preamp Boost

    The Sir Reel was inspired by an old German echo/reverb from the 1970’s, made by Dynacord. While the effects of said unit were pretty decent, a lot of session players used its in- and output section to saturate the signal of their amps, or even to play directly into a mixing desk during studio sessions.

    That section tolerated lots of signal without any distortion, unless turned all the way up. At that point the volume level was that high, it would crush the input stage of every amp. The Sir Reel can do the same thing, but we’ve added a blend control, so you can gradually combine it with you dry signal.

    When “Blend“ turned all the up, you’ll get the exact same effect from the two main controls, which we’ve called “Fat“ & “Grit“. Or leave it at 50% to add complexity to your main sound.

    • Power: 9V DC Centre Negative PSU
    • Current Draw: 148mA
    • Manufactured in Germany
