The Analog Alien Power Pack is a simple, yet versatile, clean boost. The Power Pack’s buffered input and unique gain stage make it the perfect choice to boost your amp’s input stage, as well as maintain unity gain and tonal balance throughout your signal path.
If you use pedals, especially older vintage pedals, you may be experiencing a loss in signal level whenever one or more of them are in use. The Power Pack will restore your signal to unity gain and at the same time improve the sound quality of your pedals. The Power Pack is designed to work with both guitar and bass.
Whether you are looking to boost your amp, enhance the sound quality of your effects pedals or restore unity gain to your signal path, the Analog Alien Power Pack is the perfect choice.
Tips for use: The key to using the Power Pack efficiently is to use your ears. Where to set the gain control on the Power Pack depends on the design of your amplifier’s circuit and the amount of boost you are trying to achieve. The Power Pack is a clean boost – not a distortion/overdrive pedal. Distortion and overdrive are produced by using the Power Pack to boost your guitar amplifier’s input. This, in turn, enables the amplifier to produce the desired amount of distortion and/or overdrive on its own.
If your preference is to use smaller vintage tube amps, you may have experienced a situation where you wished you could get more output from them. Inside many of these smaller amps is a much larger amp waiting to get out and be heard. If your vintage amp is maxed out at 10 and you wish it could go to 12, then the Power Pack is your ticket to ride.
The Power Pack is also perfect to restore unity gain to your signal, or to improve the sound and performance of the other pedals in your signal chain. Try experimenting by placing the Power Pack at the beginning or at the end of your signal path and adjust the gain control until the desired output level is achieved.
