The Steel String Supreme (SSS) is an expanded version of our standard Steel String MKII, transforming it into a full-fledged amplifier circuit. The SSS is a 100% analog solid state preamplifier in-a-box with an independent EQ section and five additional tone-shaping controls beyond it's little brother, the Steel String MKII. The SSS is designed to go direct (DI) into your mixer/inter-face, OR into your digital modeling amplifier (ex. Kemper, Line 6, Headrush) to impart "tube" warmth and transients, OR in front of your tube amplifier.
No matter how you run it, the SSS delivers on its heritage, bringing the 3D clean and edge-of-breakup tones we expect from a D–style amplifier.
