Tweaked around the Sunn Model T amp, our T-BAG is a 2-in-1 JFET Preamp and a pretty violent tribute to the great T.
Full 3-band EQ, two channel preamp gain knobs (Normal and Bright channels), foot switchable channel (Right footswitch). One master Volume (Vol.).
Design note : No comments. 😅
Power consumption : 4mA
Voltage : 9Vdc Center Negative
Demo of the prototype :
I've never played a Model T but this pedal sounds like what I imagine they sound like. I play this through my 40W Traynor YCV and it's absolutely devestating when cranked. On the regular non bright channel you can get a nice classic rock distortion or you can hit the bright channel for some blazing leads or a boost to your rhythm. Both channels play well with other pedals, especially fuzz because the model T is a very treb-mid heavy preamp style. Throw a muff infront of it and go to town, you don't actually like your neighbors anyway, do you?
Great little preamp distortion pedal. Nails the tone of the Model T fairly well. Very dark, dry, and somewhat scooped. Run a Rat or Muff into it and your SO will probably come down into the basement and scream at you for shaking the house off the foundation and disturbing the neighbors.
Running through a Dual Terror and Orange 4x12. Incredibly menacing tone. This pedal Dooms.
I just received my T-Bag Model T Preamp and I'm really enjoying it. I'm running it into either a Matamp GT-120 or a Quilter Toneblock 202. The eq is very responsive, the two channels offer a lot of tone variation, the pedal is made very well, and it looks great!! I play doom metal and I especially appreciate the full range of sound, lots of low end, nice crisp highs, and tons of gain. I'm super impressed with this pedal and would not hesitate to buy something else from Gup Tech. Thank you!!!
