And thanks to the Synergy Friedman BE-BB preamp module, those exact tones can be at your fingertips with a new level of convenience and affordability. Far from modeling or emulating, Dave Friedman himself designed this module, nailing every detail of the amps’ to-die-for tone and impressive touch sensitivity. By utilizing a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes to power its BE [BE-100] and BB [Buxom Beauty] channels, whether you're switching between a crystalline clean tone and a boosted lead sound or a harnessing the BE channel’s vintage British-like abilities and switching to a more aggressive distortion, true tube tone will always be present, detailed and hopelessly addictive. If you want to give your Synergy rig cream-of-the-crop British roar while tapping into the finest cleans Synergy and Friedman have to offer, you'll want to grab a BE-BB preamp module.
The Synergy BE-BB pre-amp features two channels. Each channel has a gain and volume knob and 3-band EQ. You’ll also find 3-way bright switch and 2-way mid boost toggle on the BB side of the module for further crafting your perfect cleans.
