January 2017; Jessup, MD:
API announces its second generation TranZformer Series, designed to easily and affordably bring the legendary analog sound of API to your guitar and bass.
The TranZformer Series includes the GT Guitar Pedal and LX Bass Pedal, both of which incorporate API's traditional analog signal path to provide gain control, compression and equalization in one box. The second generation TranZformer Series includes every feature of the groundbreaking initial TranZformer Series, while adding new, convenient features such as a hard wire bypass switch, universal +18VDC power supply, and an LED indicator that monitors input and output stage clipping.
Each unit offers the user an unsurpassed level of sonic control and features phase invert switches on each output, ground lift, clip indicator and transformer output. The TranZformer GT and LX both combine an API 525 feedback-type compressor with a 3 band equalizer, optimized for guitar and bass respectively. Like all API products, the TranZformer Series is built to API's exacting standards and remains true to the design philosophy that has made API the leader in professional analog recording gear for nearly 50 years. More information is available on our GT and LX pages.
