What makes a good amp sound?
Tube technology, selected high-voltage components, dynamics through high-voltage technology and an uncompromising analogue signal path.
The BL 800 goes exactly this way. AVTC - Analog Virtual Tube Circuit, selected high-voltage components, 280V operating voltage and completely analog signal path.
The BL 800 is built like a real tube amp, with the same components, and that's exactly how it sounds!
Sound without compromise:
The BL 800 delivers a clearly defined, tight sound with lots of attack. In addition, there is a playing dynamic reaction to the potentiometer of the guitar that only good tube amplifiers can achieve. The gain reserves surpass the good old JCM800, especially when you switch on the boost. Without activated boost, the BL 800 is an exact sound copy of the JCM 800 with a little more gain, with activated boost there is a decent extra boost of gain.
Gain, bass, middle, treble, volume, plus a gain boost. Five controls are enough to perfectly match the BL800 to an amplifier. This is achieved by an active 3-band tone control that covers all sound nuances. The boost adds another kick of gain without changing the actual sound of the BL 800.
Vintage meets HighTec
AVTC – Analog Virtual Tube Circuit: This is a newly developed assembly of FETs and other components that exactly simulate a tube. The development of the circuit took more than 4 years, the result is an equivalent tube replacement that behaves like a 12AX7 tube electrically and in terms of sound.
MSTB – Mechanical Silent True Bypass
The BL 800 is a true bypass pedal, it switches purely mechanically but without the typical switching noises, which are reduced to a minimum. When switched off, it is completely removed from the signal chain.
The BLDeluxe works internally with a regulated operating voltage of 280V DC, the external power supply should be a standard 9V DC regulated power supply with 250mA power consumption.
Pay attention to the current consumption, at least 250mA!
