The Power Engine Deuce Deluxe is a pumped up version of the former Power Engine 60 Series, which was introduced back in 2001. Our original concept for a FRFR speaker cabinet specifically designed for stringed instruments evolved from an overwhelming amount of inquiries as to which amp would be best to use with a SansAmp.
This new design offers more wattage, more controls and can be used for both guitar and bass. The Power Engine Deuce Deluxe is a powerful, lightweight solution for amplifying any direct recording device or pre-amp €“analog or digital, tube or solid state€“ from any manufacturer. You can take your Fly Rig/SansAmp or preamp gizmo du jour, with all those great direct sounds you€™ve spent so much time creating, out to a gig and simply plug into the Power Engine Deuce Deluxe. You€™ll get all your personal settings with volume and without any coloration of the tone. So there€™s no need to labor over readjusting all your parameters that would otherwise be colored by a conventional amp.
New look, with same features and functionality.
Hey, remember the €˜80s? A lot of bad clothes but some way-cool, aggressive distortions. Tight, muscular grind with buzz-saw harmonics never went out of fashion and the Boost Distortion delivers that fast punchy tone. It features its own unique SAG control that adds an expressive, tube-like response to every pick stroke.
It goes by many names, comes in many flavors and they€™re all good. Unfortunately, finding that sweet spot isn€™t so easy with vintage pedals. You need to deal with noise, signal loss, tones that can change with battery life and even the temperature on stage. Some of those old Germanium-powered effects are more sensitive than a train-car of nitro.
Tech 21€™s all-analog circuitry squeezes righteous, vintage tones out of every Boost Series pedal with modern dependability. Designed and built from the ground up utilizing the best individually-selected, hand-biased discreet components, each unit delivers optimized performance with studio-quiet operation. And we call them Boost pedals for a reason. Alongside a wealth of hot driven tones, there is a powerful boost function that delivers up to an incredible 21dB of clean boost, which can be used independently from the effect. It is a true post-boost, punching up the tone you dialed in, not smothering it in unwanted distortion. From the high-impedance input to the sweepable low-pass filter in the tone control, your tone will be open and controllable in every setting.The POWER ENGINE DEUCE DELUXE incorporates a feature set compatible with both guitar and bass:
