Electronic Audio Experiments Model feT
The Model feT is a transistor-based preamplifier designed around the legendary Sunn Model T amplifier. Those who have played the original know that while it excels at heavy tones when pushed, it is far more than just an amp for stoner rock and doom metal. In fact, on its own it is a fantastic mid-gain amplifier with a tone that is dark, yet clear and present—making it an exceptional pedal platform.
Most famous Model T tones come from putting a distortion or fuzz in front of the amp. Thus, the Model feT is designed to sound good on its own and with other pedals stacked in front. This pedal goes beyond the standard triode-to-JFET emulation approach with the inclusion of an emulated power amp. This broadens the range of gain and—in the true spirit of the original amp—allows for massive headroom and volume output. This greatly expands its capabilities beyond a typical drive pedal: the Model feT can be used directly into a power amp, cab simulation, or DAW.
