Real Tube Preamp with Cabinet Simulation and MIDI Control: Tsakalis is proud to release their most ambitious product to date. Seamlessly blending the authentic analogue warmth of real tubes with a highly configurable cabinet simulator, plus flexible outputs and control options, the MOTHERSHIP - Real Tube Preamp stands out as possibly the most highly featured and flexible front end for any guitar rig currently available.

Both channels on the MOTHERSHIP are identical, yet highly configurable. Featuring three gain modes (High, Medium and Low) on each channel, along with a toggle switch for selecting between your three chosen speaker simulations, the MOTHERSHIP can conjure up a multitude of both iconic, familiar and unique tones easily and intuitively.

Each channel also features two master gain controls along with two master volumes, allowing four different voices to be instantly recalled, either by pressing the relevant footswitch or via MIDI command.

Demonstrating its prowess as a fully comprehensive plug and play device, the MOTHERSHIP also features over 70 free custom cabinet simulations to choose from (when connected to Tsakalis’ own TAW Editor app via USB), separate dedicated simultaneous outputs for both the cabinet simulator and a “dry” output for your amp of choice, MIDI control of channel and A/B selection and also a serial mono FX loop for added tonal versatility.

The MOTHERSHIP is a complete solution for authentic vintage and modern genuine tube amp tones, in a user-friendly and lightweight, yet rugged package that is designed to slot in easily into any setup.
