Particle Accelerator X

The Particle Accelerator is based on the legendary Alembic F-2B preamp which is of course the input section of the Fender Bandmaster. It runs excellent as a clean preamp but can also be turned up to get a nice gritty overdrive. The classic Fender tone stack gives excellent flexibility to dial in whatever tone you're looking for, either on guitar or bass.

Controls: Gain, Master, Bass, Mids, Treble

​The X Series Particle Accelerator uses a 12AX7 tube, but it can be swapped for any of the 12A*7 family tubes for a different sound. It comes in a Hammond 125B enclosure.

It takes a 9-12V input, and can accept center negative or center positive inputs. It uses internal regulators to supply 200V to the plates, giving it the richness you expect from a full high-voltage preamp.

CURRENT DRAW NOTE: Like many Sushi Box pedals, this one uses a tube, which means current draw is a bit higher than a standard pedal. While we haven't profiled X Series yet, you can expect current draw requirements to be ~350mA @ 12v.
