A preamp that puts Soldano-like overdrive at your feet.

The AMT Legend Amps Series S1 Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal is intended for the production of sound peculiar to «drive» channels of Soldano* amps. It is distinguished by a specific type of overdrive: open, wide, and at the same time tough and dynamic.

"AMT Legend Amps" is a new revolutionary series of one-channel preamps from AMT Electronics, developed with a new approach to guitar sound formation. Original circuitry was used to produce analog modeling of the physical processes occurring in real vacuum tubes. AMT Legend Amps possess a number of unique features found in real tube preamps and amplifiers:

• Preamps included into AMT Legend Amps series provide excellent playing dynamics characteristic to real tube-based devices and are in no way inferior to them.
• With the limitation range similar to tube channel the preamps of the series ensure terrific thickness and power to the resulting sound. Working with AMT Legend Amps preamps you won't feel the urge to cut out the most informative middle frequencies, which in turn will provide great readability of your guitar in the sound mix.
• Like tube preamps AMT Legend amps provide gradual increase of the limiting stages number as the gain grows.
• The series' preamps use passive circuits of tone shaping which are in full conformity with the tone controls during original tube overdrives.
• The high level of output signal of AMT Legend Amps (+10 dB at max Level position) corresponds to the tube preamps' output signal levels. Thus you have adjustable signal level that makes it possible to connect the preamps to any input (RETURN, DIRECT, LINE etc.) including INPUT POWER AMP

Comments about AMT Electronics Legend Amps Series S1 Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

People keep saying this a preamp but its not. Go and buy it like a man and plug it into your effects return and see what happens lol. Its a distortion pedal. S2 is preamp. This one goes over your clean channel.

Sounds pretty decent though.Especially for metal and shredding. Better then any sounds i can get in pod farm 2 (not saying a whole lot). I still like my marshall valvstate and crate combo better :(
