BRUTO MKI is a pedal preamplifier which integrates many analog devices connected together. In compact dimensions BRUTO MKI included: two or three channels with independent tone stack, solo (can be activated on all functions), four buffers (input, output, send, return, spa sim out), one speaker cab simulator and a ergonomic switching system. Today are born "new needs" with guitar like situations of the "silent stages" (increasingly frequent), settings in very small spaces (theater, club, etc,) and high quality Home-Recording.
I thought to create a product that guaranteed "Great Guitar Sounds" and that it took in consideration these new aspects. It's a multi-channel analog tube pedal that can be used with or without amp. One of the main features is the possibility of being used directly on a mixer or external recording devices ensuring great sounds and surprising the signal dynamics. The sensation of "sound on touch" is one of the typical characteristics of the BRUTO MKI, created specifically to satisfy even the most guitarists demanding and obtained with analog techique.About BRUTO MKI One of the features that Brutus allowed to do was the possibility to customize own sound through autobias replacement of the output tube. On the same philosophy BRUTO MKI offers a solution for personalizing your sound with the adjustement of a trimmer for each channel indicated by the "Screwdriver" symbol.
This setting has the function of increase or decrease the mid frequencies and automatically change the state of "bell frequency" (frequency cut). This allow with only two controls (Treble and Bass) to manage better and complete the frequencies of our guitar. The peak current of the tube in the preheating can exceed 1A (1000mA).
