Source Audio SA170 Programmable EQ Pedal

$ 149.00

The Source Audio Programmable EQ is a bold re-imagining of the traditional equalizer pedal.

This compact, rugged, cast aluminum unit offers plus or minus 18dB of range over 7 frequency bands, plus an additional frequency band at 62Hz accessible via the Octave Extend function. Engaging the Octave Extend systematically optimizes the pedal’s frequency spectrum to accommodate the specific frequency range of your bass guitar.

Once you’ve dialed in the desired guitar or bass tone, save it in one of four programmable user presets. All four presets are easily accessible via the hands-free footswitch scrolling function. Simply hold down the footswitch and let the pedal scroll through each preset at an adjustable rate – release to engage. The pedal’s MIDI input also provides remote access to user presets or engages/disengages the effect.

The Programmable EQ offers a substantial clean boost of up to 12dB. Use the clean boost for an entirely transparent volume increase or go further and give your amp the front-end push needed for an aggressive natural break-up.

The relay-based true bypass footswitch provides improved reliability, remote switching capabilities, and a completely unaffected, hard wire signal in bypass mode.

As a bonus, the Auto-scrolling function, which automatically scrolls between all four presets at an adjustable rate, creates unique and dramatic effects similar to sequencer of tremolo units.

The pedal runs on a 9V battery (included) or with an optional external power supply.
