The Colour Box brings you the unmistakable sound of plugging your guitar, bass, piano, microphone, or anything else, directly into a vintage Neve preamp. We've been waiting for a pedal like this for some time. Think "Revolution" by the Beatles, "Black Dog" by Led Zep, "The Beast and Dragon, Adored" by Spoon, "Reelin' in the Years" by Steely Dan, etc... The Colour Box is capable of that tone, and many, many more.
The Colour Box has become a JHS Pedals classic in a matter of a few years by giving players a sound that before was only available in the studio. With studio-grade circuitry and a Lundahl transformer, the Colour Box is a preamp, EQ, overdrive, distortion, and fuzz that will transform any signal you put thought it.
The Colour Box Preamp v2 has all the same functionality of the v1 with many new and improved additions like expanded EQ controls, a Hi/Lo switch for massive clean headroom, and the ability to pass phantom power to your condenser mics. The most significant improvements are:
-Addition of an output transformer
-Safely passes 48v phantom power
-EQ shift knobs for precision EQ control
-Hi/Lo switch for ultra clean headroom
-100% available clean signal even on acoustic guitar
-Runs on standard 9V DC neg. power
