Thanks to the Synergy Friedman BE preamp, the exact tone and feel that makes the BE-100 a legendary amplifier can be at your fingertips. Far from modeling or emulating, Dave Friedman himself designed this module, nailing every detail of his amp’s to-die-for tone and impressive touch sensitivity. By utilizing a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes to power its two similarly voiced channels, whether you’re switching between a high-gain rhythm tone and a boosted lead sound or a gritty rock ‘n’ roll crunch and a more aggressive distortion, the amp’s tone will always be present, aggressive, and hopelessly addictive. If you want to give your Synergy rig cream-of-the-crop British roar, you’ll want to grab a BE preamp.
The Synergy BE pre-amp modules features two channels. Each channel has a gain and volume knob with a shared three band EQ.
