Description

The Amp Rescue was so named after it was demonstrated through a small, solid state amp in a music store in Atlanta. The exclamation was heard, “Wow! It rescues a bad amp!” It is a gain staged preamp with Germanium diodes. The onset of overdrive is gradual, but it adds compression and 2nd order harmonics and “sparkle”. The Amp Rescue pedal acts as an enhanced front end preamp for great sound through any amp, especially amps that lack punch and drive. It chimes in a way you never believed a pedal could, and it has been said to replace the chorus effect in some guitar rigs because of the lively top end. Like all Lounsberry Pedals it sounds and plays more like a guitar amp than a guitar pedal The controls work the same, and the input is very responsive, ranging from a warm semi-clean to full on classic rock crunch and saturated lead tones. The Amp Rescue provides a public service for users of “fairly good” equipment and provides the dynamic touch response of a vintage tube amplifier.
