Seattle, WA (July 9, 2012) – Verellen Amplifiers has introduced an affordable, portable solution for musicians seeking the expansive tube tones of their Meatsmoke and Skyhammer amplifiers. Verellen Preamp Pedals deliver tube-driven reproductions of the acclaimed preamp circuitry featured in their flagship, full-size amps.

The Verellen Preamp Pdeals ship complete with Gain control, 3-band EQ, and Master Volume controls. High and Low output modes allow for instrument-level use with a standard guitar or bass amplifier, or run directly into a power amplifier.

The dedicated record output includes a speaker simulating filter with two levels of intensity. This   allows for running the preamp pedals directly into a mixing board, tape machine, or DAW, without the need for heavy power amps or speaker cabinets.

Built for abuse and rigorous touring, each preamp pedal is constructed of the highest-quality components housed in a sturdy black steel enclosure, set between two side-panels of finished birch.

The Meatsmoke Preamp Pedal and Skyhamer Preamp Pedal are available now, at a retail price of $699. Rack-mountable versions will follow shortly for the same price. During the first month of availability, customers can purchase the pedals via a Kickstarter campaign for a discounted price of $499 each.
