We wrapped the final day by looking at the latest from Benson Amps, Ruokangas, Fortin, Prestige, Rainger FX, and more.
Benson Amps and Chase Bliss Audio Preamp Mk II
One of the most buzzed-about pedals of this year's NAMM show was the Preamp Mk II, which is a collaboration between Benson Amps and Chase Bliss Audio. Joel of Chase Bliss loved Chris Benson's preamp but wanted to be able to save presets. The duo ended with a creation that holds 30 presets, includes a fuzz circuit, silicon and germanium clipping, and deep control of the mid frequencies. Honestly, it was hard to find an unusable sound. Availability and pricing are TBD since Joel needs to "try and break it" before unleashing it to the public.
