Massive Unity attended the Summer NAMM Show this year and introduced the Dirty Boy preamp. Designed for guitar and bass, the unit is powered by T.A.E. technology, which is a proprietary tube amp emulation developed by engineer Danny Gomez.
“Based on the classic amplifier, the Dirty Boy is a full analog amplifier simulator for line connection, a highly detailed preamp to your amp’s FX loop, or even an impressive tube sounding booster/overdrive to your amp’s input,” the company writes.
The switchable boost offers up to an extra 20 dB. Other features include a variac simulator, a true coil transformer by LAA Custom, and remote switching. The Massive Unity Dirty Boy preamp is available now for $352.
