The Pro Tone Preamp is our faithful recreation of the TC Electronic Integrated Preamp, an insanely rare boost & EQ pedal.

The Integrated Preamp was the secret sauce behind Meshuggah’s guitar tone for years. The boost pushes the front of end their Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifiers while the EQ allows for the bass cut that cleans up the notorious flabby and muddy low end of the Dual Rec.

As with the the original, the Pro Tone Pre Amp can run on 9volts to as much as 32V. We have found the sweet spot to be at 18V.



This pedal sounds
fucking deadly



  • Bass allows boosting or cutting the 100 Hz band by +/-15dB
  • Treble allows boosting or cutting the 10 KHz band by +/-15dB
  • Level controls the overall output of the effect

Hand Crafted

Each Pro Tone Pre Amp is painstakingly hand crafted in  Charleston South Carolina, USA.


Higher voltage doesn’t mean more available volume. It means that there is more headroom.

At 18V supply, the circuit can take a much higher input signal and boost it without clipping.

9volt operation will function beautifully with PASSIVE pickups. If you’re using active or high output p’ups, or have the Pre Amp in your signal chain after another boost (like an overdrive) you’ll want to go to 18 or even 24 volts for best results.

Analog & Digital Friendly

Designed to work seamlessly with tube amps, solid state amps, digital profilers like the Kemper or AxeFX, and virtual amps & DAW plugins

The Pro Tone Pre Amp features:

  • Operates best with 18-24 volt negative tip power supply (not included)
  • True Hardwire Bypass with grounded input for noise free operation
  • Proudly hand wired in the U.S.A.
