I finished my second VP26 preamp this week. It’s ready for testing and then studio work. The first one was done a month or so ago, but I didn’t have time to write a post since I took it straight into a week-long remote recording session. The VP26 sounds excellent on snare drum – I dialed in just a taste of input stage crunch and controlled the output level with the attenuator. With an SM57 on the top of the snare and a blackface UA 1176 compressor afterwards, it sounds just like a snare should sound.
About Sonic Wizard
Sonic Wizard pedals are tools for the working guitarist. Boutique analog effects work with digital switching to create rich tones that are easily accessible.
The basic idea: step on a switch, get more than one effect. Eliminate the tap-dance and focus on playing music.
Sonic Wizard pedals are built by Alex Nitta. Alex lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he plays guitar in Radio Mystery.
