When you work at a place like Wildwood Guitars, you eventually become a gear snob. There’s no use in fighting it. When you’re surrounded with the coolest amps and guitars in the world every day, you grow accustomed to a certain level of excellence in your gear. This becomes a problem when you realize that you want—nay, need—a British EL84 amp, a British EL34 amp, an American 6L6 amp, and a high gain fire-breathing metal monster, and a hot-rodded Plexi, and…and…well, you get the picture. The point is, securing a collection of boutique-quality amplifiers that cover all of the sounds you hear in your head is a difficult task that requires lots of time and money.
That’s why we’re so incredibly excited about Synergy. Synergy’s groundbreaking amps and preamps allow you to get all sorts of tone snob-approved authentic sounds without breaking your bank or your back. How does that work? Well, the circuit of each Synergy amp or preamp has a slot for something called a module. Each module contains and authentic preamp section from a different boutique amplifier. So, you can plug in the preamp section of a Friedman BE-100 designed by Dave Friedman himself to record a crunchy rhythm, and then swap it out for a Metropoulos Metro-Plex designed by George Metropoulos himself to record the solo.
