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 €œTop Panel€� access to the previously internal BOOST feature of the original THROTTLE BOX„¢.
With the worldwide success of the THROTTLE BOX„¢ overdrive, we saw potential for an even more powerful version that included our classic Five-Band Graphic Equalizer. With the added shaping power the on-board Five Band EQ creates the THROTTLE BOX EQ can go anywhere you want to take it stylistically. The middle range of the GAIN control delivers tight, stinging overdrive that€“depending on whether you choose LO or HI GAIN Modes€“can cover everything from Blues to Modern Metal with plenty of attitude and an urgent percussive nature. Cranking things up into the upper one-third of the GAIN control in HI unleashes a hot-rod that€™s blistering with searing top-end harmonics.
