Catalinbread Epoch Boost gives you the preamp of Maestro Echoplex EP-3 in a pedal form. EP-3's preamp was part of the signal chain with legendary tones from Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen and many others. The circuitry of Epoch Boost is identical to the EP-3's preamp circuit.
Preamp: Adjusts volume level. At 7-12 o'clock affects the volume. From 12-5 o'clock brings different frequencies forward.
Boost: With the Boost control you can set the amount of boost to your liking. At 7 o'clock the pedal is at unity gain. Towards 5 o'clock this control raises the preamp gain and adds sparkle to your tone. You can get max 22 db boost, when you have both the Preamp and Boost controls at their loudest settings.
