Thanks to the Synergy Friedman HBE preamp, the exact tone and feel of the HBE-boosted BE-100 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. The HBE preamp boasts a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes to power its two channels. Whether you’re switching between a high-gain rhythm tone and a boosted lead sound or just want two channels of over-the-top sonic destruction, your tone will always be present, aggressive, and hopelessly addictive. When it’s time to give your Synergy rig cream-of-the-crop high-gain British tone with an extra kick, you’ll want to grab an HBE Preamp.
The Synergy HBE pre-amp features two channels. Each channel has a gain and volume knob with a shared three band EQ.
