A tribute to the early pioneers of Rock n’ Roll... The Time Machine Preamplifiers’ “The One” resurrects the distinctive sounds of that early golden era, offering them in a pedal format. Calling to mind the likes of Les Paul, Julie London and Nat King Cole, among others... “The One” recreates the distinctively warm sounds of the late 1940’s and early 50’s, while maintaining the headroom necessary to let your fingers to do the talking! If you’re an early Rock n’ Roll fan, or a Jazz player looking to equip yourself with the classic saturation and equalization characteristics of that golden era, look no further than “The One!” Designed and hand wired by Guitarist/Engineer Reeve Carney, right here in the USA.
1947 - Designed to resurrect the sound of the airwaves when the likes of Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian were grazing them with greater ubiquitousness. I wanted to give the player the feeling of broadcasting oneself through a radio in a post-war family’s living room.
1949 - Designed to target the sonic footprints of the likes of Les Paul in his earliest years as a recording artist, as well as contemporaries like The Ink Spots and even moving ahead into Barney Kessel territory.
1953 - Designed to replicate the warm bell like guitar tones of the early 50’s which I find almost impossible to recreate without a design such as this. As with all circuits in the series, don’t be afraid to be heavy handed with the High Pass/Low Cut control. While I find this to be an incredibly useful tool not found on many analog effects pedals, you’ll notice the way in which it’s employment in the case of these designs, is able to bring out a wide range of distinctive character within each of these 18 independent circuits. And utilizing it in the case of the 1953 setting is vital in accessing those incredibly specific bell like guitar tones indicative of the era.
