Phase reversal, ground lift, line level out, dedicated tuner out, TRS effects loop, and even a prepost switchable DI output with pad make this a true studio-quality device that shines onstage. Hardwire bypass, non-slip rubber bottom, included 12V power supply.The BBE Process–What it IsLoudspeakers have difficulty working with the electronic signals supplied by an amplifier. These difficulties cause such major phase and amplitude distortion that the sound reproduced by the speaker differs significantly from the sound produced by the original source.In the past, these problems proved unsolvable and were thus relegated to a position of secondary importance in audio system design. However, phase and amplitude integrity is essential to accurate sound reproduction. Research shows that the information which the listener translates into the recognizable characteristics of a live performance are intimately tied into complex time and amplitude relationships between the fundamental and harmonic components of a given musical note or sound. These relationships define a sounds sound.When these complex relationships pass through a speaker, the proper order is lost. The higher frequencies are delayed. A lower frequency may reach the listeners ear first or perhaps simultaneously with that of a higher frequency. In some cases, the fundamental components may be so time-shifted that they reach the listeners ear ahead of some or all of the harmonic components.This change in the phase and amplitude relationship on the harmonic and fundamental frequencies is technically called envelope distortion. The listener perceives this loss of sound integrity in the reproduced sound as muddy and smeared. In the extreme, it can become difficult to tell the difference between musical instruments, for example, an oboe and a clarinet.BBE Sound, Inc. conducted extensive studies of numerous speaker systems over a ten year period. With this knowledge, it became possible to identify the characteristics of an ideal speaker and to distill the corrections necessary to return the fundamental and harmonic frequency structures to their correct order. While there are differences among various speaker designs in the magnitude of their correction, the overall pattern of correction needed is remarkably consistent.The BBE Process is so unique that 42 patents have been awarded by the U.S. Patent Office.3 band, recording-console quality EQ with a sweepable mid-range bandPhase reversalGround liftLine level outDedicated tuner outTRS effects loopPrepost switchable DI output with padHardwire bypassNon-slip rubber bottom12V power supply included

Bbe Mini Boosta Grande Clean Boost Pedal


Bbe Mini Boosta Grande Clean Boost Pedal


$79.99


The all-analog Boosta Grande from BBE is back in a new mini chassis to conserve space on your pedalboard.A clean boost pedal does nothing but pile on gain, right? Well, some do, but that doesnt create the experience players want. You see, added gain will push the amps front end tubes harder, creating more of the amps own harmonics, but that alone will make the amp seem too bright, sacrificing the tonal balance in the process.The BBE designers call Boosta Grande a transparent clean boost because it doesnt change the tonal balance of the amp, even with Boostas max gain of +20dB slamming those tubes. To achieve a transparent boost experience, Boosta Grande mildly rolls off some top end starting at about 1kHz so that when the amps front end is driven harder with gain, the additional upper harmonics generated by the tubes arent excessive.Boosta Grandes mission to preserve amp amps tonal balance ends with careful post-EQ, but it starts with preserving the tone of your guitar. Boosta Grandes 1meg Ohm input is about the same as the front end of a good Marshall or other premium tube amp, welcoming your guitars signal with wide-open arms, not loading down your pickups. In the middle of things, you can count on Boostas 1% metal-film resistors for consistent tone and a rugged circuit board for tour-proven reliability. When the Boosta isnt engaged, a properly engineered true hardwire bypass means signal passes entirely around the circuit, from input jack to output jack without a hint of loading.When a transparent boost is the experience youre after, get a Boosta Grande and let your amps tubes sing their song with more gusto.

BBE Tremor Analog Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal


BBE Tremor Analog Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal


$105.59


Think an old Fender Blackface amp with a tremolo circuit like a Twin or Super Reverb. Now imagine that warm, pulsating effect of the sine-wave oscillator working its magic as perfected by Leo Fender. Pretty awesome, right Reality check your amp doesnt have a classic Leo tremolo circuit, or it just doesnt work well anymore. Fact is, a lot of those old tremolo circuits get pretty dodgy over time, often ending up delivering a jarring onoff square-wave effect or a weird popcorn-popping sound.Enter Tremor. Created by Paul Gagon, former RampD Engineer at Fender and certified amp geek with soft spot for Leo-era classics, Tremor faithfully recreates the experience Leos finest amp tremolo. Better yet, Tremor features dual foot-switchable speed controls. Just think having two speeds locked and loaded means you can cover Crimson And Clover then follow that up with For What Its Worth. Okay, so maybe youve got a couple other songs in mind, but the cool thing is you can do it without reaching down to tweak a pedal or messing with your amp. You know, that old Twin with the tremolo that also makes popcorn. Whats more, its bulletproof reliability means it can take the abuse of the road without breaking a sweat, unlike that vintage Blackface youve been babying all tour long.BBE fans will note that Tremors back with a new look that really nails the experience. Amp spotters will peg the flavor right away, with Tremors white graphics on a matte black finish, complemented by crme amp knobs. Tremor is just dripping with that transitional 1963 mojo, and once you plug into it, youll find tremolo that would surely impress Leo himself.BBE Tremor Leos Finest Tremolo, Now Available in a PedalHigh-voltage poly caps for better toneMilitary-spec circuit board for reliabilityEasy access battery compartmentTrue hardwire bypass5-year warranty
