Aclam The Windmiller Preamp Demo - PG Gear Spotlight

One of Pete Townshend's famed reverb units served as the inspiration for this powerful preamp.



ACLAM Windmiller Preamp

The Windmiller Preamp pedal is a faithful recreation of the Grampian Reverberation Type Unit 636 built-in preamp, which was used as a tool by The Who's Pete Townshend between '66 and '67 to fatten his legendary tone and boost the guitar signal to saturate his amps.

The result is a versatile pedal that can be used as an 'always on' preamp with a beautiful color, a booster for solo parts, or a tool to make tube amps saturate and enhance their natural overdrive.

  • Based on the preamp of the Grampian Reverberation Unit Type 636, S/N: 1138
  • Hi. Cut and Lo. Cut tone shaping controls for maximum versatility.
  • Suitable for Guitar, Bass and Keys
  • Includes the overload indicator lamp as the original Grampian 636 does.
  • Improved and quieter circuit including true bypass switching.
  • Custom enclosure designed to match Smart Track® pedalboards.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
