Lauren Audio's  "Aerocomet" is an instrument preamp modeled after the renowned 1176 Rev. A (Blue Stripe) compressor's preamp section. Along with it's compression capabilities, the 1176 imparts remarkable coloration, and is known to be used in production with the compression circuit deactivated. I attribute some of that lovely coloration and harmonic content to the preamp stage, and after some tinkering I believe we have brought that tone to a pedal format. A variable gain control, along with a variable low pass filter have been added for increased range of use. The gain control will take the preamp from warm saturation up into fuzzy distortion, while the filter will let you dial back the HF content as needed.

Main tone takeaway: Mid/Low Focus and saturation, increased harmonics, mild-through-heavy breakup with gain control. Adds girth and color.

Totally Happy with this Pedal

Outstanding, with it's own unique tone.

Hidden Gem

Like the Mustang GT, the Aerocomet has fantastic low noise fidelity, great dynamics and a wide range from clean to grit. The demo videos that attracted me to this pedal designer noted that he was well respected by other builders and diligently reproduced the sounds of the inspiration for the pedals. Both pedals are extraordinary and need a broader audience of appreciative musicians.
