Tritonlab Unveils the Equinox

A tube preamp emulator that uses JFET technology and a massive amount of headroom that's designed for bassists.

Tallinn, Estonia (May 29, 2019) -- Tritonlab company has released a new bass preamp/overdrive pedal, the Equinox.

This is a tube preamp emulator built using JFET technology. This solution offers a warm tube sound with soft clipping and low noise level.

The external supply voltage of 9V is converted to an operating voltage inside the pedal to 33V. This has made it possible to achieve good dynamics (headroom).

The pedal can be used in the following modes:

  • Preamp - with low gain level
  • Overdrive - with a large gain level

The 3-band EQ with a parametric middle offers ample opportunities for adjusting the sound. There are also additional filters for frequency correction - these are notch knob (сuts 400 Hz frequency) and Lo Shift toggle switch (determines the level of the low-frequency input).

Features:

  • Die-cast aluminum cases offer unprecedented durability
  • True bypass on/off switch
  • 9-volt external power supply and standard DC input

The Equinox pedal carry street prices of €130. They’re can be purchased directly from the Tritonlab online store at www.triton-lab.com

Equipped with noise reduction and noise gate modes, the Integrated Gate has a signal monitoring function that constantly monitors the input signal.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
