DryBell The Engine · Guitar Effect

DryBell has delivered again - after the successful Vibe Machine and the great Unit 67 pedal, the effects specialists from sunny Croatia have taken on another classic in rock history: the legendary British Non Mastervolume Amp of the late 60's, better known as "Plexi". The Engine Pedal is a combination of Plexi Style Preamp and Rangemaster Booster - a combination that has been tried and tested since the 60s. The Engine Pedal consists of 2 independent sections: a Plexi Preamp side and a Rangemaster Booster. The order of both sections can be changed with the Order switch. The Preamp side offers controls for Gain, Volume, Tone and the Shape control, which can change the character of the plexi sound. The Rangemaster side is based on the Booster section of the ingenious Unit 67 pedal - but without the compressor. The Engine delivers dynamic, assertive plexi sounds before each amp - the sound and distortion intensity can be controlled very well with the guitar's volume potentiometer. If you activate the Rangemaster, you get a transparent sound without the unwanted sounds that usually come when adjusting the volume potentiometer of the guitar. All this in the usual meticulous workmanship with first-class components that is typical for DryBell.

The missing link!

A combination of early Marshall circuit distortion (JTM45) and Rangemaster style treble boost. Side A gives you the amp overdrive and Side B the treble boost. Either side can be run into your amp on it’s own or combined in one of two ways with the other side. i.e. A before B or vice versa. The secret sauce is the ‘shape’ control on Side A which tailors a specific range of mid and high frequencies to your choice of guitar and amp. The ‘Range’ control on the treble boost side (B) performs a similar function in relation to mid frequencies. Running either Side A or B into your amp alone provides touch sensitive boost/grit but B into A is the best way to hear what this box can do for your guitar and amp. You want want to turn it off! At first sight, it appears very expensive but if you consider that it combines two distinct, and very effective, sounds shaping tools, it is well worth the outlay.
