有人说:“摇滚乐中一些最伟大的音色是在没有效果器的情况下实现的!”

别着急下定论!

虽然从设备发展史看是正确的,但其实一些吉他大师是依靠一个老式磁带延时设备来帮助实现音色传奇的。这个设备就是Maestro Echoplex EP-3。

虽然有些吉他手很好地利用了它的延时效果,但其实很多人把它拖到每场演唱会上,只是为了它神奇的前级。这个前级电路在演奏中一直是接通的,所以即使是那些使用它作为回声效果的人,也从该前级电路得到了显著的音色提升。


从Eddie Van Halen到Dead Kennedys的East Bay Ray都依靠EP-3前级将自己的声音提升到了前所未有的高度!


现在你也可以,随着我们时代的推进!

在Catalinbread的产品序列里,我们把Epoch Boost称为“mastering pedal-主控踏板”,因为它就像你的音色根基。


Epoch Boost是通过使用与真正的EP-3相同的内部电路来实现的,从NOS橙色电容到输出的混频器,它充当了一个基本的频率选择器。


Epoch Boost采用了内部增压技术将电压提升到22V,是的,就像历史原型一样,给你无与伦比的净空和清晰度。

在电路内部,我们提供了一个可切换的hi-Z的输入信号BUFFER切换,如果你想使用Epoch Boost作为你唯一的效果器也会给你惊喜。


当Boost 旋钮关闭时,它会给你纯粹的EP-3前级音色,开启它可推起高达20db水晶般清晰的升激励。

原文介绍:

You’ve heard the rumors: Some of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest tones were achieved without pedals. Not so fast! While that’s technically true, some of the most venerable guitar gods relied on an old tape echo unit to help achieve their legendary tones. This unit is the Maestro Echoplex EP-3. While some guitarists made great use of its echo effect, others dragged one to every gig just for its magical preamp. This preamp circuit was wired always-on, and so even those using it as an echo effect received significant tonal enhancements from the preamp circuit as well. Everyone from Eddie Van Halen to East Bay Ray of the Dead Kennedys relied on the EP-3 preamp to take their sound to previously unreachable heights. And now you can also, with our Epoch Boost.

Around the shop, we refer to the Epoch Boost as a “mastering pedal,” because it sounds like your base tone, but sculpted to perfection by a mastering engineer. This is accomplished  by employing the same internal circuitry as a real EP-3, from the NOS Orange Drop capacitors to the output mixer stage that acts as a rudimentary frequency selector---it’s all there. We’ve taken the liberty of kicking the internal voltage all the way up to 22 volts, just like the original unit, giving you unparalleled headroom and clarity. Inside, we’ve included a switchable hi-Z input buffer if you’d like to use the Epoch Boost as your only pedal (don’t worry, we won’t judge). The Boost control gives you just the EP-3 tone when rolled off, but adds up to 20dB of crystal-clear boost as you crank it. And trust us, you’re gonna want to.
