Offering five different tone-shaping tools in one compact pedal, the Ibanez Pentatone Preamp and Equalizer is a top-notch stompbox that allows players to sculpt their sound with unparalleled precision. Featuring two different boosts, a snarling distortion, and dual EQ sections, this pedal is a true Swiss Army knife of tone. Once you put the Pentatone on your board, it'll make you wonder why you ever had separate boost, distortion, EQ, and preamp pedals-this pedal nails all these effects flawlessly.
The Pentatone is designed for guitarists and bassists who love to kick up the gain and add some serious power to their signal. With pre-boost, distortion, and post-boost sections, players have multiple fantastic-sounding options for beefing up their sound. And thanks to the distortion section's 2-band EQ, users can create a thick, wooly-sounding bark or bright, biting distortion that cuts like a hot knife through butter.
Aside from its killer boost and distortion sections, the Pentatone has a 5-band EQ that allows for effortless tone tweaking. Each band has up to +/-10dB of gain for maximum sonic versatility. If that's not enough for you, this incredible pedal also boasts a treble-boosting bright switch that enhances the clarity and definition of your signal.
Additionally, the Pentatone has a remote input that allows users to connect an external footswitch for on-the-fly control of the pre-boost and 5-band EQ sections. It also sports a noise gate switch, a much-needed feature for players using single-coil equipped guitars or other gnarly, grinding dirt effects.
An ultra-advanced pedal that delivers five awesome effects in one heavy-duty enclosure, the Ibanez Pentatone is a must-have for players seeking an all-in-one solution to their preamp, boost, EQ, and distortion needs.
