The MXR Echoplex Preamp pedal is a faithful recreation of the original EP-3's secret weapon - its built-in preamp. But now you don't have to bring out the vintage piece to gigs and risk damage to it - you can have it right there on your pedalboard in a heavy-duty casing. Known for its ability to tame a guitar's tone as much as its tape echo, the EP-3 was used the go-to preamp for players like Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, and Eric Johnson, to name a few.

By recreating the EP-3 front end via a Field-Effect Transistor (FET) and an identical signal path, it lets you achieve an exceptionally sweet tone. And with the Gain control, you can boost your signal up to +11dB for some subtle asymmetrical clipping at higher settings - and achieve some organic grit while you're at it. What's also especially cool about it is that not only can it run on a standard 9-volt battery, but it also has power management circuitry to guarantee constant headroom performance regardless of how much juice is left in the battery. The MXR Echoplex Preamp effects pedal is true bypass and can also be powered by a standard 9-volt AC adapter.
