Ananashead Effects

A modern interpretation of an early 70s Matamp circuit.

Adding to his line of amp inspired drives, Ananashead has announced the GT73, a dirt box to add some 70s doomy grit to your chain.


The GT73 is a handmade pedal based on the 1973 Matamp GT120 preamp with master volume control and solid state components rather than tubes.

It's an updated version of the previous big box GT73 as the JFETs used began to be scarce in their through hole version and were changed by their SMD equivalent.

The original Drive control is fixed on the 'Stage Bright' setting and the Bass-Boost rotary switch has been changed for a potentiometer, this allows to reduce the size of the enclosure. Maintains the same inductor based Presence control like the GT120.

Features:

•Six knobs to control Volume, Master, Presence, Treble, Bass and Bass-Boost

•Shielded inputs/outputs to avoid RF

•Filtered and protected 9VDC input

•Daisy-chain friendly

•Popless True Bypass switching

•Current draw: 10mA

The GT73 pedal is hand-made in Barcelona with careful selected components and has a price of 140.00€. The pedals are available and can be purchased directly from the Ananashead online store.
