What is it: This is a two parter review. The Colossus preamp is a high gain monster of a pre amp for guitarists that are looking for a 5150 type of tone. Kartakou really delivers the goods with this beast, as well as a fantastic crystal clean channel to boot.
Secondly we have the Warmer which is Kartakou’s adaption of the famous Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer, This features a 3 way Bass Toggle modification as well as a Clipping switch. Kartakou also give you 5 different OP Amp chips to interchange to really find the tone you are looking for. Let’s also not forget to mention how sexy the frame lighting is.
Who is this for: This is for you Hard rock and metal players that need more gain on tap than anything else.
Pros: Lightweight design on the preamp side of things, brilliant tone and feel from the pedal.
Cons: If you are planning on using the Colossus in a live environment you will need to add a power amp and cab to your rig. This is not a con per say just something to note.
