Radial Engineering RegencyRadial Engineering has announced the Regency stompbox, which acts as a pre-emphasis for mid- and high-gain amps.

The first element of the pedal is the pre-drive – a high output, low distortion overdrive that is used to add extra saturation to an amplifier without muddying the tone. This features a drive control, adjustable tone and a level control. A three-position low-mid switch further refines the tone by allowing control of the bottom end. When in play, the pre-drive adds natural sustain and harmonics. The second element is a fully discrete class-A boost that delivers up to +18dB of gain. A built-in effects loop automatically activates when the boost is engaged, allowing effects (such as delay) to accompany soloing. Both the pre-drive and the boost may be used at the same time.

‘When developing new products, we often consult with a tight-knit group of individuals who we have grown to trust,’ says Radial CEO, Peter Janis. ‘One such is Réjean Lachance, an incredibly talented player from Québec, who is best known for his work with Roch Voisine, Lara Fabian and Johnny Hallyday. Lachance wanted a pedal that he could use to drive the front end of his amp harder, either to add sustain or to produce extra grind. He worked with long-time engineer Denis Rozon to produce a prototype, and the result is the Regency.’

Made Radial tough from 14-gauge steel, the Regency is well prepared to handle the rigors of international touring. It is also super compact and is powered by a standard 9V supply for easy integration onto a pedalboard.

The Regency stompbox carries an MSRP of US$169.99.
