Trickfish Amplification Unleashes the Trilobite Preamp Pedal
After revealing it at the Winter NAMM show back in January, Trickfish Amplification has announced the Trilobite preamp pedal is available for pre-order. The pedal packs in two of the preamps found in their Bullhead amps with plenty of connectivity and routing options.
Each channel of the Trilobite has independent gain controls with a four-band EQ. Channel A expands on this with switches to change the frequencies controlled by the lo and hi-mid knobs. The far left footswitch toggles between the channels, which can be set to be used in mono mode with a single instrument or dual mode with two instruments plugged in.
The Trilobite also has two effects loops, the first of which is switchable and has a side-chain dry blend on the back for adding in a dry signal to retain low end. Its second loop is an insert loop.
The back panel has two direct outs with one having a pre/post switch and the second (aux) always being set to post. It also has dual inputs, the dual/mono mode switch, the amp out, a line input, a tuner output, and a headphone output.
You can get an overview of the pedal and a quick demo in these two videos from Trickfish:
The Trilobite is available for pre-order now with a special price of $549. The regular price will go to $599 after the pre-order.
