If you crave the vibe, sound, and purity of a great, cranked vintage tube amp, you need to try the Synergy B-Man preamp module. Crafted to drip with the warm lows, clear-as-a-bell top end, and thick harmonic crunch of a Bassman-inspired tone, the B-Man module is your gateway some of the most important guitar sounds ever. With two 12AX7-driven channels, you’re able to instantly switch from a traditional sound to a more overdriven sound for leads or rhythms. Each channel also boasts bright and tight switches that change the tone’s character and can tame the loose low end that comes with the vintage amps. Every guitar sound you love owes a debt to the tone captured in the Synergy B-Man preamp module. Plug into one and experience the tone that changed the world.
The Synergy Bman features two totally separate channels. Each channel features gain, volume and 3 band knobs as well as three position tight and bright switches.
CATHODE SELECT SWITCH:
The BMAN module features a three position switch allows you to configure the input tube bass response to match the original circuit of the selected module (patent pending). This will affect the feel and tightness. Each amp designer has a specific combination of components that makes up their input tube circuit. We have selected the three most popular combinations which you can access with this switch. The modules will come preset to the same setting as a Fender Bassman which for the BMAN module is position 1 ( 1.5K resistor and 22uf capacitor).
DUAL<>SINGLE SLIDE SWITCH:
The BMAN module includes a switch used to allow the new Synergy modules to be used in older single channel Egnater and Randall modular amps/preamps that do not accept the dual channel modules. This allows access to either of the module channels when that slot is turned on. You will still not be able to switch between the two channels due to the limitations of the older hardware. You can set it so either module channel one or module channel two will turn on when the slot is selected. Set to Dual when using the module in units that have the switching circuit to access both modules. If you are using a single channel only amp/preamp, setting to DUAL will make the bottom module channel active. Set to Single will cause the top channel of the module to come on when selected.
