ADA Amps has unveiled the Definition Preamp, a discrete transistor preamplifier housed in a stompbox format. The pedal is designed to get the most out of instruments with passive magnetic pickups. ADA says the Definition’s high impedance and low capacitance allow for passive pickups to “produce their full dynamic and frequency capabilities without introducing compression, noise or distortion.”
The Definition Preamp has a foot-switch activated Boost that delivers up to 16dB that can also be used to overdrive the first tube stage in a tube amp. Made in California, the preamp can be powered by 9 to 18 volts DC, though the company suggests 12 or more volts for bass pickups.
The ADA Amps Definition Preamp is available now for $199.95.
