Overview

Unlock the full potential of your Synergy preamp modules with the convenient and powerful SYN-1 Single Module Tube Preamp. The SYN-1 unleashes your boutique tube tone in three extremely useful ways. The cabinet-simulated direct output sends your 12AX7-driven tone direct to your recording console with the exact sound and feel of a high-end tube amp. Thanks to its ability to replace an amp's onboard preamp, harnessing fantastic tone onstage and on the road has never been easier. And for those of you who want to add a dose of flexibility to your current rig, the SYN-1 will integrate with your amplifier and effects, adding two more footswitchable channels to any amp with a series effects loop. Whether at home, in the studio, or onstage, you can rely on your Synergy SYN-1 Single Module Preamp for harmonically rich tube tone.

Going Direct
By taking advantage of the SYN-1's direct recording and performance capabilities, you'll send the real sound and feel of some of the world's most iconic tube amplifiers right to your track or front-of-house. This is true tube-driven tone, not a digital emulation. The SYN-1's direct XLR output boasts a cabinet simulation that is second to none, offering you a studio-grade tone that is as effortless to attain as hooking up an XLR cable. Do you have your own impulse response that you'd rather use? No problem. Simply bypass the cab sim on the back of the unit. And to further dial in your tube-amp experience, we worked hand in hand with legendary amp designer, Steven Fryette to outfit the SYN-1 with a front-mounted Sag control, supplying you with the feel and response that only a great tube amp can give.

Turn any Amp "Boutique"
Whether you’re a touring musician who relies heavily on rented amps or are just unhappy with the tone of your current rig, the SYN-1 is an answered prayer. Simply run your guitar into our preamp and plug the unit into your amplifier's series effects loop return or power amp input. You've now bypassed the amplifier's preamp, giving complete tonal control to the SYN-1. Imagine it, consistent all-tube tone on the road, night after night. With the simple swap of a module you can turn your current amp into a Diezel VH4, a Friedman BE, a Morgan AC40, or any other of the top-tier amps recreated in the Synergy line. And because each module boasts two footswitchable channels and an effects loop, you're able to effortlessly call up new tones on the fly.

Add Channels to Your Existing Amplifier
One of the most powerful ways to utilize your Synergy SYN-1 Single Module Tube Preamp is to add channels to the amplifier you already have. By hooking the unit to your amp's series effects loop with a straight-forward 3-cable method, you're able to footswitch between the two channels on your Synergy preamp module and your amp's built in channel(s). With the stomp of the included 2-button footswitch you can take your amp from its own crystal cleans to your module's fire-breathing gain. Best of all, with the SYN-1's onboard effects loop, you still have the ability to run your favorite rack and stompbox effects before or after the preamp section.
