The Love Bomb is a unique all tube Overdrive / Preamp instrument FX pedal hand built in London, UK.
At the heart of the Love Bomb is a fantastic military spec NOS 6948 sub-miniature tube from Sylvania / Phillips. Originally designed to power missile guidance systems during the Cold War, these tubes have now been
re-purposed to create art and musical love.
Hardwired into the circuit along with a selection of no compromise components, the pedal is built to last and will withstand the ‘shock and awe’ of the road or the recording studio.
Featuring a plethora of options to achieve your preferred flavour of overdrive from clean boost, to warm crunch, to saturated liquid high gain and ending in tube-powered fuzz meltdown.
HPF - Tighten up low end with a switchable 75hz High Pass Filter
Overdrive - Huge gain range available from clean boost to tube fuzz
Bias - 6 position switch to control the Bias and gain range of the 6948 Tube
Sag - Fully sweepable to control the amount of Sag in 6948 Tube Output
LPF - 6 position high frequency filter to tailor HF response.
Output - High level output to tailor how your signal hits your amplifier
The controls are all interactive and allow complex gain structures to be achieved, thus far unavailable in a single pedal format.
Designed by music producer Gareth Johnson of Stand Alone Productions and tube guru Simon Saywood of Analoguetube, the Love Bomb is a truly collaborative project blending extensive real world recording studio testing and tuning underpinned with deep technical knowledge.
Constructed using only the finest available components and built the old way with supreme attention to detail.
Love Bomb is proudly manufactured in London UK.
Comes with Pelican style hardcase.
