    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. 

    ● Intuitive and fast way to record great tube tone
    ● Balanced XLR output offers cab simulation with bypass
    ● Licensed Fryette Sag control lets you dial in the preamp's feel and response
    ● Onboard effects loop for use with your rack and floor-based effects
    ● Ground lift eliminates unwanted signal noise

     

    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.

    ● Harness the tones of top-tier amp builders through any series effects loop equipped amplifier
    ● Replace an amp's preamp section with the tube-driven module of your choice

  • Peter Diezel and the Diezel Amplification brand are synonymous with boutique-quality, high-gain amplification. Since the release of the company's first VH4 amplifier in 1994 they have attracted rock and metal players that demand nothing but the best. Peter Diezel ensures that perfection by hand-checking every single amp personally, and has been doing so for 25 years. Today the Diezel stable of amplifiers has grown to include such ground-breaking models as the Herbert and the Hagen. Simply put, when it comes to high-gain electric guitar amplification, there is none more refined than a Diezel.

     

    Even with their other lauded guitar amplifier designs, when players think Diezel, it’s the VH4 that rules them all. Its four channels are fully capable of effortlessly achieving  an impressive array or legendary guitar tones. But it's when players experienced channel four that the real legend begins. Everything from vintage crunch to intense metal tones lives along the gain control's travel. About half way up the dial you'll experience the balance of aggression and refinement that has made believers of such legendary players as Adam Jones (Tool) and James Hetfield (Metallica). Each note punches out of your speaker cabinet with an articulate character that never loses its vicious personality. If Diezel is at the pinnacle of high-gain amplifier engineering and it is the VH4 that put them there.

     

    With the Synergy Diezel VH4 Preamp Module you have access to the same searing guitar tones that have made the Diezel brand one of the most respected names in the amplification industry. But this is no mere emulation. Peter Diezel personally designed the module, ensuring your tone sings with the authentic grind and character of its namesake amplifier. This two channel design boasts independent 3-band EQ sections on each side, allowing you to fine tune separate lead and rhythm tones. Once you put the Synergy Diezel VH4 Preamp Module to work, its glowing set of 12AX7 preamp tubes will rip through your speakers with the savage refinement that only a Diezel can offer.

     

    The Synergy VH-4 pre-amp modules features two channels with a gain, volume and three band EQ.  

     

    CATHODE SELECT SWITCH:
    The VH4 modules features a three position switch allows you to configure the input tube bass response to match the original circuit of the selected module. This will affect the feel and tightness. Each amp designer has a specific combination of components that makes up their input tube circuit. We have selected the three most popular combinations which you can access with this switch.  The modules will come preset to Peter Diezel's preferred setting which for the VH4 module is position 2 (2.7K resistor and .68uf capacitor).

     

    • 2 Preamp channels - Interchangeable design
    • Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble, Volume controls

Throughout that time, luminary players such as Jerry Cantrell and Steve Stevens have been relying on Friedman's amplifier modifications, repairs, and builds to keep them sounding at the top of their game. With that expertise in tow, Friedman moved into crafting his own line of top-shelf electric guitar amplifiers, instruments, and effects, and in doing so has built one of the most enviable rosters of artists out there. Whether discussing the plexi-on-steroids tone of the BE-100, the pedal-platform versatility of the Buxom Beauty, or the fire-breathing Bill Kelliher signature Butterslax head, Friedman amps are undoubtedly taking over as the premier rock 'n' roll electric guitar amplifiers.

     

    Few modern amplifiers carry the intrigue of Friedman's flagship BE-100. Born from the expertise Friedman gained modding and maintaining some of the greatest British-style tube amps out there, the BE-100 combines the best elements of each with a healthy dose of Friedman's own design ingenuity to create, what many players feel is, the quintessential plexi-style amplifier available today. The amp's ability to dish out thick waves of overdriven power while simultaneously keeping the nuanced character of your individual style have made it the go-to amp for players and bands, such as Dave Weiner (Steve Vai) and the Foo Fighters. When players talk about Friedman amps, the BE-100 is always at the top of the list.

     

    Thanks to the Synergy Friedman BE preamp, the exact tone and feel that makes the BE-100 a legendary amplifier can be at your fingertips. Far from modeling or emulating, Dave Friedman himself designed this module, nailing every detail of his amp's to-die-for tone and impressive touch sensitivity. By utilizing a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes to power its two similarly voiced channels, whether you're switching between a high-gain rhythm tone and a boosted lead sound or a gritty rock 'n' roll crunch and a more aggressive distortion, the amp’s tone will always be present, aggressive, and hopelessly addictive. If you want to give your Synergy rig cream-of-the-crop British roar, you'll want to grab a BE preamp.

     

    The Synergy BE pre-amp modules features two channels.  Each channel has a gain and volume knob with a shared three band EQ.

    A centerpiece of the Friedman Amplification lineup, the Dirty Shirley effortlessly blends the old-school rock tones of late '60s England with the focused and clear high-gain tones that define the Friedman Empire. This single-channel tube amp sets the standard for touch sensitivity, cleaning up beautifully as you lighten up your pick attack or roll back your guitar's volume. It is also an incredible platform for your whole array of stomp boxes. Though it excels at classic rock crunch, the Dirty Shirley is also commonly run much cleaner and can also conjure enough grit to hold its own with old-school metal. The Friedman Dirty Shirley may be the ultimate rock 'n' roll example of "less is more."

     

    If you're a modern-style player who demands a classic rock tone, dripping with juicy harmonics, you'll want to plug into the Synergy Friedman DS preamp. While some preamps seek to emulate or model a particular amplifier's tone, the DS has been carefully designed by none other than Dave Friedman to nail the exact tone and feel of his Dirty Shirley amps. In fact, the DS module's two 12AX7-powered channels offer even more versatility than Friedman's original tube head. Dial one channel in with a bit of grit while the other is driven into a luscious lead tone, and it's like having two Dirty Shirleys at your beck and call. Install the Synergy Friedman DS Preamp and dive into Dave Friedman's take on the ideal vintage guitar tone.

  • George Metropoulos has spent over 20 years ripping, restoring and analyzing vintage Marshall amps.  Specifically, 100 watt Superlead heads.  Metropoulos Amplification owns a reputation for building the most historically and sonically accurate plexi replica amps available.  With the release of George's Metro-Plex, all that knowledge was distilled and fermented into a modern design with best of the best plexi Superlead tones. Based on one particular plexi 100 watt from 1968, serial # SL/12380 (just 79 away from EVH's #1 plexi) the Metro-Plex delivers iconic plexi tones heard on countless rock records. 

     

    With the Metro-Plex Synergy module those tones are now available in a format that allows you configure your rig - your way, without compromising on authentic plexi tones.  The gain, frequency response, feel and dynamics are fully captured and effortlessly dialed in.  The EQ is highly tweaked and features more range than a typical plexi.  From all-at-noon settings for full, balanced tones to more extreme settings for tweaked plexi tones the Metro-Plex module stays musical and inspirational.  It feels like a great vintage amp under your fingers and it always cleans up beautifully with your guitar volume.

     

    Dial the gain past 7 and you are well in to mod'ed plexi territory, picking up where stock plexi circuits top out.  More aggressive with endless sustain, you will instantly recognize the mod'ed Marshall tones on tap.  With two channels on the Metro-Plex Synergy module you can set one for stock plexi tones and the other for tweaked plexi tones.  It's win-win!

     

    Two 12AX7 tubes provide four gain stages which are utilized to emulate the clipping, harmonics and dynamics imparted on your guitar signal by the entire plexi circuit.  From the first gain stage to the output transformer, all of the plexi superlead magic is designed in and confirmed via rigorous A/B testing against #12380.

  • MORGAN AC – INTERCHANGEABLE PRE-AMP 

    Joe Morgan is a man who is committed to purity. His amplifier designs are straight-forward affairs that aim to be as much of an instrument as your electric guitar. It's because of this allegiance to quality that he will only use the finest materials and craftsmanship while expecting only the finest tones from his amps. Amplifiers such as his AC series and SW line have created a massive stir on stages and in studios around the world for how well they achieve the character of some of the most coveted vintage amps, while adding even more clarity and complexity to the tone. When your artist roster contains as many first-call session guitarists who are critical about their tone as Morgan's, you know you're doing something very right.

     

    Morgan's AC series of tube amplifiers is one of the company's most lauded lines. They’re praised for their ability to achieve the vintage chime of many British Class-A combos, their pedal-friendly headroom required by modern players, and their ability to get dirty with the best of them. Most impressively, they do it all while having a simple 3-knob control layout. It’s this tonal flexibility and their specifically British personality that has placed the Morgan AC amplifiers in the rigs of some of Nashville's top session players and the world's most notable touring pros.

     

    Fire up a Synergy Morgan AC preamp and the jangly flexibility that is making the Morgan ACs players' go-to amps will be yours. In fact, the AC module is designed by Joe Morgan himself to elicit all the detail and tone of his own amplifiers. Onboard you'll find two similarly voiced channels that, unlike on the amplifiers, allow you to quickly switch between two AC tones on the fly. Two 12AX7 preamp tubes are employed to deliver British character and crispy break up. And each channel is outfitted with a bright switch for tailoring the preamp to each of your guitars. When nothing but AC-style tone will do, plug in your Synergy Morgan AC preamp.

  • SOLDANO SLO - INTERCHANGEABLE PRE-AMP 

    When Mike Soldano released the original Super Lead Overdrive (SLO) 100 in the 1980s the sound of rock 'n' roll electric guitar was forever changed. With industry-shifting innovations such as dual footswitchable channels and the amp's inherent focus and tone, Soldano quickly became the name you wanted on the front of your guitar rig. The man's ceaseless commitment to quality and consistency has helped maintain his position as one of the gurus of high-gain amplification. And you'll still find him personally hand-soldering Hot Rods, Decatones, and SLO-100 amps in his shop in Seattle, Washington.

     

    The Soldano SLO-100 is one of the first boutique-style high-gain amplifier heads to ever hit the market. Previous amps had hinted at the evolution of hard rock guitar tone, yet it took the mighty SLO to define its chewy distortion, tight low end, cutting highs, and full-throated mids. The proof of the SLO-100's legacy can be witnessed every time you find one still backing some of the biggest players in the world. Far from a one-trick-pony, the SLO's singing sustain has even be found backing the lyrical playing of Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler. Whether pushing the swampy slide work of Warren Haynes, the New Wave stylings of Blondie's Tommy Kessler, or the mention that even EVH himself used to crank one up, the Soldano SLO-100 continues to prove itself as one of the premier rock 'n' roll amps of all time.

     

    The sound of a Soldano SLO-100 is an experience all high-gain fans need to experience. And thanks to the Synergy Soldano SLO preamp, it's never been easier. But the SLO module isn't some modeling or emulation of Soldano's beloved circuit. Mike Soldano himself designed this dual 12AX7-powered preamp to elicit the same thick sound, creamy gain, and endless sustain of his original amp. With the addition of a second similarly voiced channel, the SLO Preamp Module offers two switchable voices that will take you from tight crunch to soaring lead with the push of a button. Thanks to the Synergy Soldano SLO preamp, nailing the elusive tone of a cranked Soldano SLO-100 is easily within your reach.

  • SYNERGY 800 – INTERCHANGEABLE PRE-AMP

    There's no question about it. A cranked British stack is, was, and always will be the sound of rock. From the moment in the 1960s when these amps were created to keep up with the likes of Pete Townshend, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton, a revolution in thick-creamy overdrive was born. Since that time, there have been a string of British amps so iconic that they continue to rule stages around the world. From the Bluesbreakers album to Malmsteen’s high-flying precision, the company that invented the amp stack is still synonymous with everything hard rock and metal.

     

    In 1981 hard rock and heavy metal had turned a corner. Gone were the loose, fuzzy tones that characterized the genre's infancy. Players were demanding more distortion, tighter performance, and the ability to control it all with a master volume. A certain legendary British amp company responded with one of the most important guitar amplifier heads of all time, affectionately known as the 800. Rock players of all stripes instantly adopted this new machine, writing and performing heavier and faster music than was ever possible before. In fact, for much of the '80s, you were almost guaranteed to find an 800 backing up your favorite rock guitarist. Their aggressive highs and prominent mids made - and continue to make - them the perfect foil for Zakk Wylde's chart-topping work with Ozzy and the dark intensity of Slayer's Kerry King. If you like your rock on the harder side, you definitely know the powerful sound of the monumental 800.

     

    If you’re on the hunt to add that original amp's characteristic bite to your Synergy rig, the 800 preamp is where you'll find it. We went to great lengths to ensure this module represents that amplifier’s tone in great detail. Dave Friedman of Friedman Amplification - who has worked on countless 800s, including personal amps of many guitar heroes - designed the module around his extensive knowledge of what makes the great ones truly special. He then hot rodded the 800 module with a higher-gain channel that takes your tone into even thicker harmonic territory. And for even more cut, both channels of this 12AX7-driven preamp feature a bright switch, ensuring your every note slices right through the mix.

     

    The Synergy 800 features two channels each with gain and volume knobs and a bright switch.  Both channels share a three band EQ.

  • SYNERGY BMAN – INTERCHANGEABLE PRE-AMP 

    When someone mentions American-style guitar amplifiers, there is really only one name that comes to mind. And for good reason. Since Fender’s start in California during the late 1940s, they’ve been designing and crafting some of the finest-sounding and most-recorded electric guitar amps in history. Whether guitarists lean more toward the company’s ‘60s-style glassy cleans or gritty tweed-era tones, all of us revere the legacy that these amps continue to create. With their blackface, brownface, tweed, and modern designs, they are the only company that truly lays claim to the American sound.

     

    There simply aren’t any electric guitar amplifiers more important to the evolution of the instrument then then 50-watt, 4 x 10” tweed Bassman combo, which hit its peak in 1959. Originally created to be a bass amp - and a fantastic-sounding one at that - guitarists quickly discovered its ability to be cranked into buttery, smooth, and aggressive overdrive. While it was shaking the foundation of American rock ‘n’ roll and blues, a British music-store owner, with a clientele that included Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, and Ritchie Blackmore, built his take on the bass/guitar amp, and the British rock tone was born. Today, just about every single electric guitar amplifier out there owes its inspiration to the original or the British versions of these amps. Whether you’re a bass man or a guitarist, there’s no denying the eternal influence and stellar tone of these tweed-era titans.

     

    If you crave the vibe, sound, and purity of a great, cranked vintage tube amp, you need to try the Synergy B-Man preamp module. Crafted to drip with the warm lows, clear-as-a-bell top end, and thick harmonic crunch of a Bassman-inspired tone, the B-Man module is your gateway some of the most important guitar sounds ever. With two 12AX7-driven channels, you’re able to instantly switch from a traditional sound to a more overdriven sound for leads or rhythms. Each channel also boasts bright and tight switches that change the tone’s character and can tame the loose low end that comes with the vintage amps. Every guitar sound you love owes a debt to the tone captured in the Synergy B-Man preamp module. Plug into one and experience the tone that changed the world.

     

    The Synergy Bman features two totally separate channels.  Each channel features gain, volume and 3 band knobs as well as three position tight and bright switches.  

     

    CATHODE SELECT SWITCH:

     

    The BMAN module features a three position switch allows you to configure the input tube bass response to match the original circuit of the selected module (patent pending). This will affect the feel and tightness. Each amp designer has a specific combination of components that makes up their input tube circuit. We have selected the three most popular combinations which you can access with this switch. The modules will come preset to the same setting as a Fender Bassman which for the BMAN module is position 1 ( 1.5K resistor and 22uf capacitor).

     

    DUAL<>SINGLE SLIDE SWITCH:

    The BMAN module includes a switch used to allow the new Synergy modules to be used in older single channel Egnater and Randall modular amps/preamps that do not accept the dual channel modules. This allows access to either of the module channels when that slot is turned on. You will still not be able to switch between the two channels due to the limitations of the older hardware. You can set it so either module channel one or module channel two will turn on when the slot is selected. Set to Dual when using the module in units that have the switching circuit to access both modules. If you are using a single channel only amp/preamp, setting to DUAL will make the bottom module channel active. Set to Single will cause the top channel of the module to come on when selected.

Since that time, there have been a string of British amps so iconic that they continue to rule stages around the world. From the Bluesbreakers album to Malmsteen’s high-flying precision, the company that invented the amp stack is still synonymous with everything hard rock and metal.

     

    If British amps are the sound of rock, the Plexi is the sound of British amps. Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Angus Young, J Mascis, and Jimmy Page are just a handful of players that have pushed their genre-defining riffs through these dominating walls of guitar amplification. Originally developed to keep up with ever-growing demand for more volume and distortion from the burgeoning hard rock scene of the '60s, these Plexis have continued to define what rock guitar sounds like. With no master volume and the need to make up for the less-than-adequate PA systems of their day, the only way to get the most from your Plexi was to crank it to punishing volume levels. But if the ever increasing popularity of these amps is any indication, that's just how guitar players like it.

     

    The sound of a Plexi is one that every guitarist needs in their arsenal. There are a million ways out there to approximate that tone, but our Dave Friedman-designed Synergy Plexi preamp nails it with an authenticity of sound and feel that you won't find anywhere else. And it does it at volume levels ranging from performance volume to silent recording. The two channels of the Plexi module can be dialed in for jumping between a great rhythm and lead tone. While each channel's I and II controls work much the same way as jumping the inputs on the original amps, allowing you precise control over the shape of your gain. With the 12AX7-driven Synergy Plexi Preamp, you're adding the undisputed sound of rock guitar to your palette.

     

    The Synergy Plexi pre-amp features two channels, each with gain, Input I and Input II knobs.  Both channels share a three band EQ.

With their blackface, brownface, tweed, and modern designs, there is only one company that truly lies claim to the American sound.

     

    The mid 1960s saw the release of the blackface line of amplifiers that changed the way we hear electric guitar today. Sitting comfortably on top of that prestigious line are a high-powered model with twin 12” speakers, and a luxurious 22-watt, single 12” speaker combo that may be the most recorded and gigged amp of all time. The larger of the two is still the quintessential clean tube amp, ideal for everything from jazz to funk, and has even found its way into the backline of hard rock players such as Mark Tremonti. With the perfect blend of power-amp grind and sparkling-clean top end, the smaller combo has garnered a list of players much too long to list. Add to both amps’ list of accomplishments some of the most sought-after tremolo and reverb circuits in history, and these two American combos may be the most iconic guitar amps of all time.

     

    No list of electric guitar amp tones is complete without the sounds you’ll enjoy from your Synergy T/DLX preamp. Carefully crafted to elicit the pure tones of two of California’s most iconic guitar amps, the T/DLX preamp may well be your go-to clean and vintage-voiced tonal solution. On one channel you’ll find the high-headroom clean tones that are also ideal as a pedal platform. Dial up the gain on the second channel and you’ll be greeted with real tube driven breakup and sag that makes those luxury 1 x 12” combos so inspiring. To ensure the T/DLX preamp  sounds terrific though your rig, we even included bright and tight switches, which change the tone’s character to nail the sound you’re looking for. No matter what version of 1960s California tone you crave, you’ll find it in the Synergy T/DLX Preamp.

     

    The Synergy T/DLX features two totally separate channels.  Each channel features gain, volume and 3 band knobs as well as three position tight and bright switches.  

     

    CATHODE SELECT SWITCH:

     

    The T/DLX module features a three position switch allows you to configure the input tube bass response to match the original circuit of the selected module (patent pending). This will affect the feel and tightness. Each amp designer has a specific combination of components that makes up their input tube circuit. We have selected the three most popular combinations which you can access with this switch. The modules will come preset to the same setting as  Fender Twin / Deluxe, which for the T/DLX module is position 1 ( 1.5K resistor and 22uf capacitor).

     

    DUAL<>SINGLE SLIDE SWITCH:

    The T/DLX module includes a switch used to allow the new Synergy modules to be used in older single channel Egnater and Randall modular amps/preamps that do not accept the dual channel modules. This allows access to either of the module channels when that slot is turned on. You will still not be able to switch between the two channels due to the limitations of the older hardware. You can set it so either module channel one or module channel two will turn on when the slot is selected. Set to Dual when using the module in units that have the switching circuit to access both modules. If you are using a single channel only amp/preamp, setting to DUAL will make the bottom module channel active. Set to Single will cause the top channel of the module to come on when selected.
