High-gain, Floor-based Guitar Preamp

The Two Notes Le Lead electric guitar tube preamplifier pedal is engineered to move your electric guitar rig to the floor. This tube-driven device boasts two independent preamps that are footswitchable and can also be blended together to taste. These preamps get their sound from modern high-gain amp tones. A free download of Wall of Sound III speaker simulation software gives you the high-quality sound of a full guitar rig. And there is a ton of I/O onboard the Le Lead preamp pedal for MIDI, running direct, headphones, and so much more.

Two Notes Le Lead Electric Guitar Preamplifier Pedal at a Glance:
  • Dual independent high-gain preamps
  • Wall of Sound III
  • A powerful set of I/O options
Dual independent high-gain preamps

The heart and soul of the Le Lead are the two fully independent and footswitchable tube preamps. These preamps are voiced to give you the character of modern high-gain amplifier tones. Preamp A goes from clean to a touch-responsive crunch, while preamp B adds more grit to the sound to get the tone of popular high-gain amplifiers' tight low end and searing distortion. The two footswitches let you select either sound or blend them together to taste in Fusion mode to pile on even more gain that can take you into fuzz territory. And guitarists at Sweetwater love the fact that the pedal interacts with your guitar just like a great tube amp.

Wall of Sound III

Along with these great-sounding preamps, you'll receive a free download of Two Notes' Wall of Sound III speaker-cab simulation software. Highly regarded in the industry, you'll be able to send Le Lead's tones direct to the board with the benefit of your choice of simulated speaker cabinets, microphones, and tube power amplifiers. Wall of Sound III also lets you mix and match cabinets and microphones, and position the mics to get your optimal tone. Running into an amp live? Just push the SPKR SIM button and defeat the simulation.

A powerful set of I/O options

The Le Lead preamp pedal boasts enough I/O to integrate easily and quickly into even the most complicated of electric guitar rigs. An effects loop lets you place your time-based stompboxes after the preamp. The DI Output is optimal for sending your signal direct to the board for live performance or recording. MIDI in and out are perfect for control of external devices. And the Thru jack sends your unaffected signal to an onstage amp if you choose. An 1/8" headphone output lets you get all of this power while silently practicing.

  • Fully featured tube electric guitar preamp pedal
  • Designed around the sound of high-gain lead tones
  • 2 blendable preamps are fully footswitchable

Great guitar preamp

If you're looking for a high gain metal monster you've found it... This thing sounds great. Has a killer high gain channel B, and a surprisingly great sounding super clear clean channel A. You can use channel A for super clean ambient sounds to almost glassy, or turn the gain all the way up to get a thick dirty clean with no crappy clipping distortion sound... I don't use the Cold or Hot Fusion myself, but it is a great option to have and you never know when it might come in handy. The EQ on both channels sounds perfect to me, looks like they really focused on making them usable. The interaction between my guitar (PRS Passive pickups) feels really good, and going from light playing to hard playing really shows dynamics between the gain stage. The direct out using the Speaker Sim sounds great right out of the box, completely usable... Download the Wall of Sound 3 VST and you can find exactly the sound you want with ease... Grab one of the Le Lead, Crunch or Clean pedals with the Le Bass, and your direct computer recording/live sound is good to go... Add in the Tornado CAB which I have as well and you have some killer options for "no latency' great sounding recording. I play a lot of heavy sounding/ambient music that is always in low tunings, anything from drop A to drop E and all tunings in between. I thought putting that info in might help someone make a better decision on this product that is wondering if it will Djent lol. Indeed it will...
