MAE – Line Blur, preamp & overdrive
Line Blur takes the often overlooked parametric EQ and simplifies it down to a tool you’ll want to use all the time. With 34 volts of internal headroom and audiophile-grade Burr Brown opamps, Line Blur can take whatever you throw at it and give it a studio sheen. Bass at 100 Hz allows for a good fundamental on bass or guitar, variable mid-range from 600 to 1.3 kHz lets you carve out your spot in the mix, and Highs centered at 2kHz add a bit of shine or keep your pick attack from being too clacky. A nicely voiced preamp further drives those frequencies and compensates for level differences between instruments. Line Blur will be the swiss army knife for your pedalboard.
