Montreal-based manufacturer Mile End Effects has debuted the cheekily named and designed Ronald Preamp 150 pedal.

Modeled quite faithfully in looks and name after the preamp found on Roland's RE-150 Space Echo, the pedal features OS JFET transistors – just like the RE-150 – and a switchable JFET clean boost. 

Its simple control layout features knobs for Output Level and Instrument Volume, and an on/off footswitch. The pedal's bias can also be tweaked via an internal trim pot.

The Mile End Effects Ronald Preamp 150 preamp pedal is available now for $199 CAD (~ $159 USD).
