Demeter Amps

Founded by James Demeter in 1980, Demeter Amps started out with one small product: the Red Box FET Direct Box. It was designed by Demeter, Rob Robinette, and Phil Van Allen to be one of the best products out there. demeter-ampsIt was quite innovative for the time with features like a built-in battery tester that would show the battery status when it was plugged in. During the 1980s, the company began building up their line of products. They created the Tube Direct Box, the VTBP-201 Tube Bass Preamp, and the MB-2 Midboost/Fat Control, just to name a few. Many of these products are still in production today, and thousands of them have been built.

Some of the products created during the 80s became very popular with professional players. Take the TGA-3 Guitar Amp. It was the first three channel guitar amp to feature a stereo effects loop, and players such as Sonny Landrith and Bonnie Raitt loved it. Even though only 200 of these amps were produced, they were incredibly popular. Likewise, the VTMP-2 Tube Microphone Preamp, which was the only one of its kind at the time, was popular with artists like Seal, Sting, and the Stone Temple Pilots.

1990 saw the company, after several name changes, become Demeter Amplification. They continued to create new and innovated products, including the Quad Tube Direct Box. This box was created via special order, and only 20 of them were ever produced. The company’s willingness to go above and beyond and create special products like this is just one of the many things that has given Demeter Amps the edge over other companies.

During the 90s, Demeter Amps continued to build various products. Some, like the VTCL-2 Compressor/Limiter, were huge sellers, and over 2,000 units were produced until, finally, it went out of production. On the other hand, the TGA-3 100 Watt Guitar Amp had a very limited run of 30. This makes collecting Demeter products very difficult, especially if you’re looking for some of these rarer devices.

Demeter has always been recognized for their excellence. In 2001, for example, they were awarded the PAR Excellence Award for the RV-1 Real Reverb. In 2003, Guitar Player Magazine named their COMP-1 Compulator as the Editor’s Pick. The VTMP-2C Microphone Preamp was nominated twice for the Mix Foundation Tech Award, the only preamp series to ever be nominated for the award twice.

More recently, Demeter has expanded their pedal line, including introducing a line of professional effects pedals in 2007. These pedals make what was already an excellent line of products even better, and anyone looking for great amps, preamps, or pedals could do a lot worse than a Demeter.

Demeter TRM-1 Tremulator Pedal Demeter TRM-1 Tremulator Pedal

A hybrid of vintage sound and state-of-the-art quality, the Demeter Tremulator designed for years of trouble-free operation. Designed to emulate the classic Fender tremolo effect (or vibrato as it is often referred to), the Tremulator features "lopsided" amplitude modulation with a rounded off triangular modulate waveform. Suffice it to say, the Tremulator sounds like the classic effect found on many vintage amps, but with less noise and hum and a greater range of speeds and depths. Operation is fairly straightforward. There are two inputs on the front side of the unit: a 1/4" input jack on the right and a 1/4" output jack on the left with a battery-ground switch on the input jack.There are two controls on the unit: Depth and Speed, plus a footswitch to bypass the effect and an LED to indicate effect operation. On the side there is a trim pot to set the bias for the optical unit. Depth affects the amount of amplitude modulation on the signal or the amount of effect. The tremulator design incorporates a small amount of gain (approx. 1dB) to allow for proper "tremulation."Also, by turning the Depth all the way off, the TRM-1 will function as a low noise volume boost. It's low-impedance output allows it to act as a line-drive, eliminating signal loss on long cable runs. Speed increases and decreases the frequency of the low-frequency oscillator, enabling you to time the effect as desired. Trim pot sets the bias of the optical tremolo unit. It effects the signal on and of time ratio. Turned up to height, it will squeeze the signal; low it will loosen it. The unit comes preset to Ry Cooder's preferred setting.Power supply: 9 volts DC. Either external or internal. For internal power, use a 9 volt battery. To access, remove the four screws on the sides of the unit and pull apart. Note: battery must have at least 7 volts for unit to work! External power supply using mini plug, tip positive, 9 volt DC regulated (100 milliamp or more).

Demeter COMP-1 Compulator Pedal Demeter COMP-1 Compulator Pedal

The sound of classic studio optical compression of the 60's and 70's at your feet! The first compressor pedal not to suck the life out of your tone. Operation is fairly straightforward. There are two inputs on the front side of the unit: a 1/4" input jack on the right and a 1/4" output jack on the left with a battery-ground switch on the input jack. There are two controls on the unit: compress and volume, plus a foot switch to bypass the effect, and an LED to indicate effect operation. On the side there is a trim pot to set the overall gain of the unit. Compress affects the amount of gain reduction (compression) of the input signal. Turning this clock wise will give you up to 30dB of gain reduction (depending on input gain). Please note that the Compulators max gain is 26dB (see Trim Pot) so in some circumstances if your instrument is very hot you could achieve less than unity gain if you turn up the compress knob too much. Volume increases and decreases the output volume of the Compulator. Use this for level matching between the effected and unaffected signal. Trim pot sets the gain of the compressor's pre-amplifier. If distortion occurs turn this down until the signal is clean. The unit is set at the factory at 20dB of gain which is perfect for most instruments. If you have weaker pickups or want to push the envelope turn it up to its max gain 26dB. Power supply: 9 volts DC. Either external or internal. For internal power, use a 9 volt battery. To access, remove the four screws on the sides of the unit and pull apart. Note: battery must have at least 7 volts for unit to work! External power supply using mini plug, tip positive, 9 volt DC regulated (100 milliamp or more).

Demeter BEQ-PB Bass EQ Preamp Pedal Demeter BEQ-PB Bass EQ Preamp Pedal

The BEQ-PB Bass EQ Preamp Pedal is a pedal version of the famous on board Bass EQ. It has active equilization for treble, middle and bass. The treble and bass are both shelving controls with 14dB of boost and cut @ 6dB per octave. The middle control is a peak control with plus and minus 12dB of cut and boost @ 6dB per octave. A gentle slope of 6dB per octave was chosen because the amount of phase shift is greatly reduced and the resulting sound is both more cohesive and natural with very little of the comb filtering that would normally happen with a 12dB per octave approach. The unit also has a master volume control, internal gain trimmer (with up to 9dB of gain), a battery jack usable with any regulated supply (9 to 27 volts), a bypass footswitch, and an indicator LED.

Demeter Over Driveulator Overdrive Demeter Over Driveulator Overdrive

Demeter Over Driveulator Overdrive The Over Driveulator is a versatile distortion pedal which tones ranging from vintage fuzz-type overdrive to modern high-gain overdrive. The pedal is essentially two distortion circuits in one, using Silicon diodes in the 'tight' setting, and Germanium diodes in the 'loose' setting. You can easily toggle between modes using a selector switch on the side of the unit. Demeter Over Driveulator Overdrive Features: The controls on the unit are fairly simple, but give you a wide range of tones. Drive: Controls the amount of overdrive. Volume: Controls the output level of the unit. Tone: Controls the amount of high frequency output on the unit.

Demeter FZO-1 Fuzzy Octavulator Effect Pedal Demeter FZO-1 Fuzzy Octavulator Effect Pedal

Coupled with classic tones from our Fuzzulator circuit, this is a combination that guarantees some totally amazing sounds. Using a completely new analog circuit to generate the octave, the sound is smooth, musical and usable through a much greater range than other devices.The unit has a 1.5 dB gain in octave mode. Push the octave switch and the octave is engaged. There is a blue LED to indicate that the octave is on. The balance control lets you fine tune your tone.Although the unit was designed to be used with the onboard fuzz, you can also get some great tones with the octave alone.

Demeter TRM-PS Tremulator PS Effect Pedal Demeter TRM-PS Tremulator PS Effect Pedal

The same analog Tremolo circuit found in our Classic mono Tremolo pedal but with added preset circuitry. With this pedal, you can set up two different tremelo sounds, and switch back and forth simply by the push of a button. As with all Demeter products, the circuit is 100% analog.Designed to emulate the classic Fender tremolo effect (or vibrato as it is often referred to), the Tremulator PS features lopsided amplitude modulation with a rounded off triangular modulated waveform. In the stereo mode the super cool tone of a Magnatone Amplifier s Tremolo is reproduced.Operation is fairly straightforward. There is one 1/4 input and one 1/8 9volt input on the Right side of the unit on the left side there is two 1/4 outputs, A and B, one for each amplifier.There are four control knobs on the unit: Depth A which effects preset A, Depth B which effects preset B, Speed A which controls the speed of preset A and Speed B, which controls the speed of preset B. There are two switches on the pedal, one to switch between presets A and B, and another to bypass the effect. LED s indicate the preset location and whether or not the effect is on. On the side there is a trim pots to set the bias for the optical units.Depth affects the amount of amplitude modulation on the signal or the amount of effect. The tremulator design incorporates a small amount of gain (approx. 1dB) to allow for proper tremulation. Also, by turning the Depth all the way off, the TRM-2s will function as a low noise volume boost. Its low-impedance output allows it to act as a line-driver, eliminating signal loss on long cable runs.Rate increases and decreases the frequency of the low-frequency oscillator, enabling you to time the effect as desired.Phase, can change the audio phase of output a to either in or out of Phase.Sync and change the tremolo effect to be in sync between out puts A and B or out of sync. That is, In sync, the volumes of both outputs modulate together or out of sync the volume of one ou
