Unleash The worlds first re-amplifier / attenuator. This device will take any amplifier from 1 to 100 watts and either attenuate or boost, from whisper quiet in the bedroom, to 100 plus blaring watts in the club. Two foot switchable volumes controls allow for rhythm and lead volumes. Unleash also offers an effects loop and direct out. Another first from the engineers at Bad Cat.
Boost The Unleash is very simple to use in application. To boost, plug the speaker output of your low wattage amp into the unleash input and the output of the unleash into a speaker cabinet. Now you have your favorite small wattage amp with the tone intact and 100 watts of available power. Don’t forget that the unleash has an effects loop to plug that delay or chorus pedal into.
Attenuate How often have you wound up the gain on your 100 watt fire breather, rolled back the volume on your attenuator and hit the front end with a booster and got nothing? It just got dirtier with no appreciable boost in volume. With The Unleash you have boost to spare without changing the tone that you took so long to dial in. Having two channels to switch between affords the ultimate clean boost. Try putting an EQ in the effects loop and the tonal shaping options expand.
Sound Transparent The unleash leaves your tone intact like no attenuator that has come before it. The reactive load circuitry fools the tube amps output section into thinking it is still reacting with a speaker cabinet. It will bloom and squash just as if you are plugged into your cab.
Input Trim When the input trim LED lights up it is an indication of sufficient signal to drive the full potential of the Unleash output. Try to set the input trim to light up when signal is peaking. Feel free to push it harder, you cannot hurt it.
Effects Loop Don’t forget the ability to insert effects post tube power amp. Try placing an EQ after your favorite amp and open all kinds of tonal possibilities. The unleash come with a direct out to record or send to a board while doing away with the necessity of plugging you amp into a cab. This is useful for those late night recording sessions.
Direct Out The Unleash comes with a direct out to record or send to a board. This is useful for those late night recording sessions. This direct out is a line level signal.
Footswitch (available separately) The footswitch allows you to have two volume controls, which can be switched back and forth with any single button channel switch pedal.
Weight 4.5 pounds and comes with a lifetime warranty.
