Shift Line Olympic Tube Preamp Pedal (and others)
Does anybody have any experience with or information about Shift Line pedals? Looks like they have some interesting stuff. Most of it is guitar oriented, but this bass preamp pedal is interesting:
...and unless I'm wildly incompetent I can't find much discussion of them on TB or anywhere on the Internet for that matter. Everything is in Russian.
I did find this site: http://shift-line.com/, but again, no hablo Russian. Google does, but the translations are spotty. There are a lot of videos of different pedals on YouTube. Some of them look pretty cool.
I got deeper into their site with Google Translate and found their contact email address and sent them a query. I'm definitely intrigued.
Shift-Line is a small pedal company and a repair shop in St. Petersburg. They are known for their interesting self designed pedals and some very fine-made clones of world famous brands.
I've tried their Termofuzz and a Meskalito Muff. First one is a "fuzz for experimenters", it has some unique tones and works amasingly with bass. Meskalito is an another green big muff variation but it has some unique features. The "mid" switch has three positions: down - midboost, center - no boost, up - double midboost. The "boost" switch engages the boost of low mids and lows. This is an EXTREMELY bass-friendly pedal.
And, by the way, I'm from Russia (not St.Petersburg, unfortunately) and if you want any additional info - feel free to pm me, I'll do my best to help!
I emailed Kirill at info - at - shift-line.com and he got back to me right away. He is very nice and will do a custom build for USA power. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on an Olympic pre just for the sake of trying something cool and rare :cool:
