An amp-in-a-box interpretation of a classic American circuit.
Finland (December 5, 2019) -- Super Black is a Blackface amp-in-a-box pedal from Mad Professor Amplification. Mad Professor Amplification, the long standing and awarded pedal manufacturer will release a new Super Black pedal in mid December 2019.
Fender Blackface amps (1963-1968) are widely considered as the most recorded amps in the history of music. And for a good reason.
Mad Professor Super Black has the Blackface tone in the box! The whole amp signal path is replicated inside. You can turn your amplifier easily into 60's Fender glory! Don’t be afraid to plug the Super Black pedal also straight into the return jack of your amp's FX loop. This way you can bypass the preamp of your amp and get the sound of a full Blackface amp signal path without the color of your amps preamp.
Super Black amp-in-a-box pedal will deliver the punchy, mid scooped and sparkling chimey clean tone that Fender Blackface amplifiers are known and famous for. And this might be the most sought after Fender sound!
Super Black will also deliver the most beautiful and amp-like break up tone one could imagine. Gain and Volume controls are making sure you will achieve the sweet spot and nail this iconic tone at any volume, still retaining full clarity. So Super Black makes it easy to get the ultimate break up tone also with your big high headroom amp or with a big Fender amp too that is too loud when you crank it up till 6 where it is finally giving the goods.
Fender Blackface amps, when pushed nearly all the way, are producing fantastic classic overdriven tones as well. At this point even the smallest models are fairly loud though. Enter the Mad Professor Super Black and you have a rocking machine at your feet at any volume.
The variation on amounts of both low end and compression depending on the model, whether it is big or small Blackface amp, is also taken into account by the team at Mad Professor. They added two mini switches, one for the bass and one for the compression. You get to tailor these characteristics, whether you want more or less, by adjusting these two switches.
And there is more! All time best seller Mad Professor overdrive pedal, Sweet Honey Overdrive, is added to boost the front end of the Super Black. Sweet Honey Overdrive pedal into a Blackface amp is a magic combination! Now you have even more possibilities when you are fine tuning your overdriven tones with the rest of your gear. Having its own on/off switch plus Volume and Drive controls you can use the Sweet Honey circuit separately too.
The combination of all above is meaning that the Mad Professor Super Black is a jack of all trades pedal in the best possible way.
”Plugging in the Super Black is like striking gold in a studio or live stage when tone seeking!” -says Jyrki Rahkola, the designer
