Big Joe Stompbox Company Analog Empire B-502 | Overdrive/Distortion
Big Joe Stomp Box Company, in collaboration with Paul “TFO” Allen, announces the release of their dual-preamp EMPIRE overdrive pedal, complete with an Adjustable Buffer/Line Driver, unique Sponge/Firm modes, and innovative Body and Attack parameters. Preamps A and B can be used independently or combined to turn any single channel amp into a 4-channel beast that roars with clarity. Bring it with you on the road and the days of being at the mercy of uninspiring backline and rental amps are over. But that’s not all... The Adjustable Buffer/Line Driver compensates for pedalboard signal loss and also doubles as +15db clean boost to create more lively and exciting clean tones, or give you that perfect “on the edge of breakup” sound. The pedal's Sponge/Firm function allows you to customize touch-sensitivity for the tube-like sag, response, and feel you’d get from an amp. The Body and Attack knobs provide additional shaping options of the overall tonal girth and pick-dynamics for limitless sound explorations.
