Slampegg Bee Pre


The Slampegg Bee Pre is based on the preamp of the legendary Ampeg B-15N. In order to keep it compact, a 12AX7 was used like in the modern B-15, rather than the bulky 6SL7 of the older units. This allows Slampegg to get a little bit more drive than it’s 6SL7 counterparts, but the main circuit is the same, so you’re not missing any of the gritty warmth and luscious low-end that bassists have come to expect from the B-15. Aside from the standard Baxandall/James wo-band tonestack, Slampegg Bee Pre also has Ultra-Lo and Ultra-Hi switches, which act as a high-cut and hi-boost respectively. The Ultra-lo is much more prominent and results in a strong rolloff of high content to emphasize the fat lows and low-mids. The Ultra-Hi is much more subtle, especially on bass, where the frequencies boosted may be less noticeable except on strong high-frequency range pickups and/or when the treble is already turned up high.

As a tube pedal, Slampegg Bee Pre requires a high amount of current to operate correctly. I recommend a 9-12VDC power supply capable of delivering at least 400mA. Using less than this can damage the power supply and/or the pedal.
