Catalinbread Epoch Pre Preamp/Buffer EP-3 Guitar Effects Pedal


+ shipping

Up for sale, a Catalinbread Epoch Pre Preamp/Buffer in near mint condition and in perfect working order. Faithfully modeled after the preamp circuit from the legendary Maestro Echoplex EP-3 tape echo, the Catalinbread Epoch Pre makes your tone bigger, fuller, and livelier. Countless guitarists over the years have plugged into an EP-3 simply to treat their tone with the sound of its preamp, and that's what the Epoch Pre provides, plus more! The pedal is also a pristine buffer, making it an excellent choice for the end of a pedalboard chain. And to retain dynamics, the Epoch Pre internally shifts a 9-volt power supply up to 22 volts for greater headroom. The Epoch Pre can also serve as a buffer for larger pedalboards or long cable runs. It features two separate outputs, and is able to drive two separate effects chains or two different amplifiers. A separate Boost switch allows for an even beefier, solo-friendly sound. While faithful to the tone of the original EP-3 preamp, the Epoch Pre offers modern functionality to integrate into virtually any rig.
