JHS Colour Box V2 Studio Grade Preamp Pedal and Direct Box Preamp - EQ - Overdrive - Distortion - Fuzz - DI Box Have you ever heard songs like the Beatles "Revolution", or Motown classics like Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, or even the modern Radiohead's "Bodysnatchers" and thought, "How are they getting that guitar sound?" Well, the answer is sort of clothed in obscurity, but it's actually created by the simplest practical application - plugging a guitar directly into a vintage studio console and recording "direct in." The JHS Pedals Colour Box is designed and created to allow you to recreate these infamous guitar tones with your live rig, or in a studio environment by using 100% analog circuitry true to the design and schematic of vintage Neve* circuitry. The Colour Box is completely free from any digital modeling. Never before have "direct in" tones been available from your guitar amp in the way that the Colour Box delivers them. Aside from creating these "direct in" tones, the Colour Box covers all the ground that you would expect a high quality studio preamp to cover. From your microphone, bass, keyboard, or even your acoustic guitar, it does it all. Has both XLR and 1/4" In/Out The Colour Box V2 has all the same functionality of the V1 with many new and improved additions like expanded EQ controls, a Hi/Lo switch for massive clean headroom, and the ability to pass phantom power to your condenser mics. The most significant improvements are: - Addition of an Output transformer - Safely Passes 48v Phantom Power - EQ Shift Knobs for precision EQ control - Hi/Lo Switch for ultra clean headroom - 100% available clean signal even on acoustic guitar - Silent switching, aka no "switch-pop" - Runs on standard 9V DC Neg power
