Two Notes Le Preamp Le Clean
That ’68 Clean Tone
Guitarists are on a never-ending journey for the holy grail of tone, so only the best pedals make the cut for an ever-growing and developing pedalboard. Every good tone starts with a pristine sparkling clean tone, which is just asking to be stacked with warm natural tube-driven overdrive and distortion. Le Clean offers just that in a compact, portable, and easy to use clean-preamp pedal that deserves its place in even the most modest of setups.
Le Clean is a pedal-sized dual-channel tube preamp with an analogue cab sim. It comes with a lifetime licence for Torpedo Wall of Sound and 16 DynIR Cabinets. With a wide range of included effects, you can mix your Amp DIs to studio standards.
Dual-channel tube preamp for your pedalboard
Classic American late '60s clean tones are the cornerstone of every pedal platform amp designed. Famous for their pristine cleans and warm saturation, generations of players have used them at the heart of their rig. Le Clean has two independent channels (parallels or 'jumped') and with a packed feature set, your inner tone chaser will instantly recognise Le Clean as the perfect pedalboard high voltage tube preamp.
12 volts pedal on the outside, 200 volts tube preamp on the inside
Going direct from a pedalboard comes with the drawback of leaving all the tube warmth your amp brings, at home. The preamp section of the amp is critical for fully developing the identity of your tone.
Le Clean features Two Notes' trademark True High Voltage design. At its heart is a JJ ECC 83 S preamp tube, running at 200 volts internally, which has been specifically chosen for this pedal.
The dynamics, headroom, warmth and that legendary response you'd expect from a vintage Californian clean tube amp are there, right on your pedalboard. It's the perfect preamp for when you want to go direct. Le Clean is designed to slot in as a tube overdrive in front of, or in the loop of, your favourite amp.
Two unique channels with independent voicing and EQ
Channel A works as an ultra-clean US-voiced preamp with high headroom giving you legendary clean tones. The bass and treble controls (based on the original F style tone stack) are placed before the gain stages, allowing you to fine-tune the tone before it hits the tube.
Channel B outputs a hot, yet kinda clean, US-voiced tone with smooth harmonic overtones when pushed hard. The three-band EQ (with sweepable mids) is placed after the gain stages for precise and responsive tone shaping.
Cold Fusion - Mix and Balance Channels A & B
Hitting both channels at once will let you run channels A and B in parallel. This is the Cold Fusion mode. In this mode, the Fusion knob lets you balance the output level of both channels for rich, fat, doubled tones.
Hot Fusion - Jumping from Channel A to Channel B
Switch it to Hot Fusion and you jump channel A into B. In this mode, channel A effectively becomes a boost pedal for B. Both channels' EQs cascade gives you power and response like no other pedal.
With great power comes great flexibility
Analogue Cab Sim - Le Clean has an analogue cabinet simulation to go direct from your pedalboard. The simulation is based on Brit VintC DynIR cabinet with Dyn57 microphone.
Headphones Out - Plug your headphones straight to Le Clean and play your pedalboard silently thanks to the internal analogue cabinet simulation.
MIDI Control - Thanks to Le Clean's powerful MIDI control, you can switch the Preamp channels and Fusion modes remotely or even control your other MIDI pedals from Le Clean's footswitches.
FX Loop - Build a preamp-specific pedal chain by using Le Clean's FX Loop. Bypass the pedal to bypass the whole chain. The effects are applied before the analogue cab sim.
It gets even better with the Torpedo C.A.B. M+
Pair Le Clean with the Torpedo C.A.B. M+ to have a portable power amp and DynIR cabinet features on stage. Have total control and sound quality, straight from your pedalboard.
