Sound seven trumpets for the APOKALYPSE, the black box of your journey to hell . Within it, you will find a bi-channel tube preamp with mesmerising compression and intuitive controls for maximum tonal and expressive liberty, and as such, our most audiophile-friendly pedal yet.
This colossal yet very board friendly amp in a box is the perfect addition for those who seek a consistent and mobile, tube driven pedal platform, but also those pursuing a sophisticated tube foundation to build sounds upon. Its functionality and inherent tonal range make the Apokalypse a valuable resource both live and in the studio, giving access to organic tube compression with inexhaustible EQ controls at your feet. From vocals and winds to pianos and percussion, Apokalypse will excite your arrangements and grow hair on any instruments chest.
It comes equipped with two 12ax7 Mesa Boogie tubes which are overpowered to 300 Volts, delivered by it’s complimentary 15-18V DC, 600ma power supply. It’s impeccable foundation is the product of an intensive collaboration with the German amp guru and commander of Redstuff Amplification, Stefan Hüther, who not only designs, but also hand etches each circuit board of each unit.
Its controls are straightforward for ease of use during any and all situations. Three switches allow you to engage, explore two separate gain stages, or entirely bypass the expansive EQ portion of the pedal completely. This enables you with both subtle, hairline adjustments, as well as dramatic on the fly shifts in tube compression and tonal foundation. The two individual controls for the gain stages provide options from flourishing cleans to mouldable, saturated drives. And, as with all our contraptions, an LED diode clipping can be added via an external switch.
Apokalypse is the perfect tool for the practical musician and the recording enthusiast, for performers and engineers alike. Its many possible applications and tastefully natural tube break up will tempt you to never turn it off, possibly until the end of time.
