preamp pedal

The updated version of the preamp and boost from Massachusetts builder CopperSound Pedals offers premium low-to-medium gain grit, this time with a second channel.

Looks pretty darn cool. Beautiful, broad drive and boost sounds. Genuine hi-fi tube-like breakup tones. Great bottom-end clarity

Input jack placement sacrifices practicality for looks. Preamp and overdrive modes sound pretty similar.


CopperSound Pedals Strategy V2


“Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.”

That’s the sage advice Nick Offerman’s Ron Swanson gives to Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope in an episode of Parks and Recreation. It could also be the mantra behind CopperSound Pedals’ simple but excellent Strategy V2, an updated, 2-channel version of their flashy Strategy preamp pedal. This revamped Strategy comes with an overdrive mode that can be selected via a switch on the side of the housing. CopperSound also added a momentary latching feature by way of a proprietary new relay-based switching system.
