The THROTTLE BOX EQ™ combines the enhanced tone shaping power of our popular Boogie® Five-Band Graphic Equalizer with footswitchable HI/LO performance Modes and easy “Top Panel” access to the previously internal BOOST feature of the original THROTTLE BOX™.
Like the original, this expanded THROTTLE BOX includes two Modes but here they are controlled by a HI/LO footswitch that enables you to have two gain regions to choose from during live performance. There are also dedicated HI LEVEL and LO LEVEL Output controls, allowing you to set the desired volume level for each Gain Mode individually. The EQ can be assigned to either or both of these Gain Mode choices so that it becomes active with the desired Gain Mode selection. In addition, we’ve fitted a MID CUT control that allows global scooping of the mids in addition to whatever you might do with the Graphic sliders. And finally, the internally selectable BOOST switch hidden under the Bottom Plate on the original THROTTLE BOX appears on this EQ version as an easily accessible Top Panel BOOST switch for extra girth and a bit of gain enhancement. We’re confident this pedal will exceed your expectations and provide an inspiring tool for expression.
