Plug your condenser or dynamic micinto guitar pedals!
The Blow! is a preamp for static or condenser mics with a jack effect loop for guitar effects pedals. If you're a singer, saxophone player, trombone or trumpet player, etc. the Blow! will allow you to experiment with guitar pedals without loss in your sound quality.
Guitar pickups being more powerful than dynamic or condenser mics, the preamp part allows to attack the guitar pedals with the same level as a guitar’s pickup. The XLR in and out and the optional phantom power makes this pedal very similar to a direct box but added a preamp and an effect loop.
To use guitar pedals with condenser or dynamic mics, the temptation would be great to simply use a XLR-> Jack plug adapter. But even if it can work, one can then get a lot of problems to solve: loss of signal quality due to impedance mismatch, noise issues, bad behaviour of the pedals due to the mic's very low signal output.
Because of its XLR in and out connexions the Blow! allow to keep all the advantages of a balanced line while sending to the pedals a signal as powerful as an electric guitar thanks to its high quality preamp and effect loop.
The full version of the pedal goes with: - A phantom power for condensers mics. On versions made until April 2022 it could be added later if you didn't think you'd use it in the first place. If you whish me to mount it later, please contact me. If you feel like your can mount it yourself, there's a DIY kit! - A bypass footswitch to bypass all the effect loop in one click. This footswitch can also be internally programmed to be a mute instead of the bypass=> April 2022: There's only one pedal left available in basic or phantom!!! Then I'll only sell the full version.
