JHS Pedals Colour Box Preamp Pedal V2

£399.00 In Stock

Based on a vintage Neve preamp, this used JHS Colour Box is a perfect solution for your home recording woes. Built to the usual, exacting JHS standards, the pedal company that brought you the Pink Panther, Angry Charlie and Sweet Tea bring you this preamp based on the desk used for the Beatles 'Revolution'. Of course, this being JHS, they've loaded the box with studio grade circuitry and a Lundahl transformer, all bolstered by serious science. So, the Colour Box features three sections, each with their own Master, Pre-Vol and Step controls. Pre-vol acts as a drive control, and in conjunction with the Step switch, which essentially changes the headroom available in order to generate different levels of breakup, you can get battering vintage overdrive or even into to fuzz territory. There's inputs for both 1.4" and XLR so you can plug anything you like into this thing - it's not just for guitars. Running primarily off 18V negative tip power, the Colour Box has both 1/4" and XLR outputs, as well as a switch for a -20dB pad. With the three sections (Gain, EQ and Hi-Pass) packing in plenty of versatility, this is a banging piece of gear for home studio use, or for use on stage if you're wanting something extra special as your drive unit.

The Colour Box V2 has all the same functionality of the V1 with many new and improved additions like expanded EQ controls, a Hi/Lo switch for massive clean headroom, and the ability to pass phantom power to your condenser mics. 

The most significant improvements are:

  • Addittion of an Output transformer

  • Safely Passes 48v Phantom Power

  • EQ Shift Knobs for precision EQ control

  • Hi/Lo Switch for ultra clean headroom

  • 100% available clean signal even on acoustic guitar

  • Silent switching, aka no "switch-pop"

  • Runs on standard 9V DC Neg power
