imperial electrical

Fast track your way to Jimmy Page drive sounds.

A compact, convenient means of gain staging. Thick, characterful, Page-style overdrive sounds.

The controls are simple enough, but the cryptic labels may frustrate some.


Imperial Electrical Zeppelin


The new Zeppelin preamp and overdrive by Imperial Electrical is an enthusiastically executed and thoughtful attempt at achieving Jimmy Page’s tones in an effects pedal—no mean feat if you can pull it off. In general, it does its Pagey magick by approximating the function of an Echoplex-style preamp and amp-style overdrive in a single box. Simple as that may sound, it gives the player a bundle of gain-staging capabilities.
