True to its bigger brother (the Chimera 30), the Benson Preamp excels at delivering sonically rich textures in a compact form factor. The tone controls go a long way in shaping the voice of the pedal and can take a pedal platform amplifier from good to awesome with the click of a switch. The Benson Preamp has great tones all over the range of the knobs and screams out for experimentation (and don't be afraid to stack it with your other favorite drives).
From Benson Amps:
We call this our Preamp because it is! The circuit is based on the our Chimera 30 watt guitar amplifier, but substitutes FET transistors for the vacuum tubes. The result is an extremely amp-like and versatile clean boost/overdrive/fuzz pedal that imparts rich harmonics and a very musical EQ to your signal chain…truly a Chimera in a box!
