Tune Up Your Tone With The Trace Elliot Transit A Acoustic Preamp And Effects Unit

The Transit A preamp pedal includes the right features for a professional acoustic guitar player without over burdening the user with extra controls that hinder quick and easy tweaking. The built in Compression, Notch Filter, Pre-shape and simple EQ controls ensure great basic tone, while the user-definable Boost, Chorus, Delay and Reverb offer all the tools necessary for artistic expression.
