The Maiden is a tube preamplifier in a pedal format. It is suitable for running directly into a power amplifier, running into the effects return of an amplifier’s effects loop, recording direct when combined with a cabinet/power amp simulator or for use as a booster/second clean sound when plugged into the front end of another guitar amplifier.
There are two models available: the Maiden BF, inspired by the classic Fender blackface design and the Maiden D, based on the clean channel of a Dumble ODS type amplifier. These preamplifiers are primarily about clean tones but can also be set for edge of breakup sounds.
The single Tungsol 12ax7 runs at high voltage for a full, rich and dynamic tube sound. The 9VDC power supply (provided) is converted to both 6.3VDC for the tube heaters and 250VDC for the tube plates.
