The TranZformer LX is a multifunction pedal that is designed to easily and affordably bring the world-famous analog sound of API to your bass. Offering the user an unsurpassed level of sonic control, the TranZformer LX combines an API 525 feedback-type compressor with a bass-optimized 3 band equalizer, both independently in/out switchable. The unit also features phase invert switches on each output, ground lift, clip indicator, transformer output and a hard wire bypass switch.

• Traditional fully discrete API circuit design
• Variable Compressor with in/out switching
• 3-Band +/- 15dB Equalizer with in/out switching
• Input Gain control with +30dB of gain
• Balanced and Unbalanced Output Phase reverse
• Balanced Output Ground lift
• Included 18 volt external power supply optimizes performance
• Hard wire bypass switch
• Universal +18VDC power supply
• Clip LED monitors Input and Output stage clipping


Input connection: 1/4" Hi-Z unbalanced instrument input

Input Impedance: ~500kΩ

Maximum Hi-Z instrument input level before clipping: +13dBu

Output connections:
1/4" Hi-Z unbalanced output w/ variable level control
XLR Male balanced line output, fixed level
*Balanced line output level is +6dB higher than Hi-Z output with Level control fully clockwise.

Output Impedance: Hi-Z output: 7.5kΩ

Balanced Line output: Less than 75Ω

Gain Control:
9.2dB - 30dB, Variable, Hi-Z output
15.2dB - 36dB, Variable, Balanced line output

Level Control:-inf. to 0dB, Variable, Hi-Z output only

Maximum output level before clipping:Hi-Z Output: +21dBu

Balanced Line Out: +27dBu

Frequency Response: +0, -0.5, 20-20kHz, both outputs, low-capacitance cable


THD+N:Less than 0.01%

Tone Control:100Hz, 400Hz, 2000Hz Peaking, continuously-variable boost/cut, +/-16dB range.

• Ratio (fixed): Varies from 2:1 to 20:1 depending on compressor control setting.
• Attack (fixed): Less than 5ms
• Release (fixed): 100ms average (frequency-dependent for natural envelope tracking)

Compressor Control (6 Switchable settings): 1 = subtle compression, 6 = maximum compression. Turning clockwise Increases gain reduction (lower threshold) while simultaneously raising output level to match.

Power Supply:+18VDC @ 650mA
Size:8" x 5.5" x 4"
