One of our friends/customers bought his pedal board in to try some guitars earlier this year. He has over 300 pedals in his collection so we knew how much thought and process had gone into it. On the board was a Sapphire Drive but we weren't aware of Vahlbruch Pedals. We heard it and were completely blown away with the tone, transparency and versatility - it's handbuilt in Germany so of course the build quality is superb. We contacted Henning Vahlbruch and ordered another one of his pedals hoping that it was of the same quality - a Spacetime Delay. Lets just say it's the best delay pedal we have ever heard! We now carry almost the full range of pedals in store, many of which feature on our own WG Pedal Board.
All of the pedals also feature Vahlbruch's own silent switching technology called MagTraB.
The advantages of MagTraB: MapTraB buttons are as good as indestructible! MagTraB delivers an almost infinite number of switching cycles - many, many millions! No annoying, mechanical switch clicks! Instead, the MagTraB push-buttons switch very smooth and silently!
The Vahlbruch BBQ combines a high-end buffer, booster and equalizer (BBQ) in one pedal.
It is handmade in Germany and can be used in a variety of ways and is also very variable adjustable. The BBQ pedal can be placed in front of the amplifier or in effect loops. It is perfectly suited as a booster to push the amp harder, it can help to clear up a crunchy amp, it helps to adjust different guitars to an amplifier, it eliminates impedance adjustment problems and it prevents your tone over long cables and effect chains. The operation is very easy and self-explanatory. A small plug' n' play secret weapon!
The BBQ pedal is also suitable for acoustic guitars!
An internal switch can be used to select between a true bypass mode or a permanently active high-end buffer circuit. An LED indicates the activated buffer mode as "Buffered Output On".
An active 3-band equalizer provides a wide range of +/-15dB for a precise and musical adjustment of bass, middle and treble. The individual frequency bands do not influence each other.
The volume can be adjusted from -8dB to +16dB in a wide and practical range.
Newly developed and very low-noise circuit design.
Exceptional reliability and ease of maintenance thanks to careful free wiring of jacks and foot switch.
Robust "on/off" circuit, an orange LED indicates the status.
