NAMM 2019 VIDEO: Chase Bliss Audio's Preamp mkII in action

NAMM 2019: Chase Bliss Audio's Preamp mkII has actual motorised faders. In a pedal! A collaboration with Benson Amps, it spans boost, overdrive and fuzz with a huge range of EQ and clipping options. 

It's sonically and mechanically jaw-dropping, so we hunted down its creators to get a first-hand demo from its creators. Enjoy!
