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).


  • 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

For more information:

Multiple modulation modes and malleable voices cement a venerable pedal’s classic status.

Huge range of mellow to immersive modulation sounds. Easy to use. Stereo output. Useful input gain control.

Can sound thin compared to many analog chorus and flange classics.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
