Lightning Boy Audio (LBA) is recently announced the latest addition to its pedal FX line, the “Bolt Bender”, Tube EQ.
“Bolt  Bender” is the ultimate in transparent equalization for electric  instruments.  It features a passive Baxandall EQ circuit with bass and treble  controls.  The 4 paper in oil capacitors include a Lightning Boy Audio  signature handmade “Thunder Cap”, and are driven by a NOS 12AU7 tube for  the most organic sounding equalization ever offered in an instrument FX pedal.
For  those looking for even more EQ options, “Bolt Bender” is expandable  with the addition of a LBA “Sidecar Controller”. By connecting an optional  controller, a variety of different EQ circuits can be accessed, turning  “Bolt Bender” into a complete powerhouse of tonal manipulation.  (Optional Sidecar is not necessary for normal operation)
The  first LBA “Sidecar Controller” to be released at the same time as “Bolt  Bender” is the “MikeyQ”. This three band inductor based passive EQ controller is very unique in that  it is subtractive only; quite a different approach to equalization than  what is currently available in other EQs.  The controls  include; volume, high, low, and mid cut, mid Q (bandwidth) and a  two-way mid frequency selector. Through the use of inductors and paper  in oil capacitors, “MikeyQ” delivers ultra-transparent mastering-grade  equalization with very low signal loss. Each Sidecar module ships with a connector cable built with Mogami microphone  cable and Neutrick 1/4" TRS connectors.
Pricing and availability
“Bolt Bender” is available for $249.00 (US) and “MickeyQ” for $89.00 (US) exclusively through the Lightning Boy Audio online store (www.lightningboyaudio.com) Demo videos are available at http://www.lightningboyaudio.com/bolt-bender.html.
Lightning Boy Audio, long recognized  for its outstanding recording studio equipment and equipment  modifications, released the popular “Soul Drive” tube drive pedal  earlier this year. Every LBA pedal is hand wired point to point and  features hand- made paper in oil capacitors, NOS capacitors, and NOS tubes to provide exceptional audio quality for the most discerning musicians and audio professionals.
