Synergy Amps has unveiled a new preamp module based on the ENGL Powerball.
The module version of the Powerball, Synergy says, brings the high-gain power the amp is known for, up to date with “the direct-recording, lower-stage-volume, and compact-guitar-rig demands of today.” It offers the same channel structure as the original, with each of the two channels switchable between low-gain overdrive and high-gain distortion. Each of the two channels also has a three-stage mid boost toggle switch, and its own gain, volume, bass, mid and treble controls.
The module is all-tube-powered, loaded with 2 12AX7 preamp tubes. Like most Synergy modules, a three-position cathode select switch allows you to configure the input tube bias setting for fine control over the unit’s input gain and bass response.
The launch follows Synergy’s first ever signature model, with Steve Vai co-designing a module, as well as some new Bogner modules from the brand.
The Powerball Module lists for $399.99. Find out more over at synergyamps.com. For more gear news, click here.
