Electronic Audio Experiments Citadel | Secret Weapons Demo & Review

Look, I am becoming increasingly convinced that EAE does not miss. Basically every drive circuit I have played in their catalogue has been phenomenal and a benchmark for that style of drive. The Citadel continues that streak in the vein of plexi-style preamp pedals. This drive is based on the ModelFET but modified to focus of midrange and sparkle. The result is equal parts articulate and brutal with the ability to bend your amp to its will or to accentuate drives that come before it in phenomenal ways. I think it’s best if we just hear it.
