Friedman IR-X Dual Tube Preamp and DI Guitar Pedal

Regular price $499.99

The Friedman IR-X is a feature-laden guitar preamp that fits right on your pedalboard...
or plugs right into your DAW.

It's loaded with two high-voltage 12AX7 tubes.

Channel 1 ranges from squeaky-clean British-voiced chime to Plexi-style crunch. 

Channel 2 yields Friedman's trademark high-gain tone, chock-full of percussive punch, note articulation, and searing sustain.

and Each Channel includes a Boost to push your drive to the next level. 

3-Band EQ for each channel and voicing switches are onboard. 

You can plug the IR-X into a power amp and cab for a genuine air-pushing experience 

or use the onboard power amp simulation and low-latency IR loader to go direct. 

The IR-X includes an ultra-transparent effects loop, 

three multifunction footswitches, MIDI programmability, USB MIDI for DAW integration, 

and a headphone output.
