It's Always good to see a new FX manufacturer making a debut. At Winter NAMM 2005 it was the turn of Damage Control who unveiled the Demonizer and Womanizer Class A Distortion Preamps. Here, in their own words, is what the company have to say about themselves and their products: Damage Control designs and manufactures audiophile guitar products, incorporating the best qualities of analog, digital, and hybrid analog/digital design applications. Damage Control products offer the best solutions without sonic compromise, focusing on what's valuable without adding superfluous features. Damage Control products offer expertly balanced retro and cutting edge technologies with groundbreaking sonic fidelity, performance, features, and style. The Demonizer is a no-compromise, audiophile, tube distortion preamp with opto-compression and pre/post bionic™ EQ. Armed with a double-barreled 12AX7 preamp design, the Demonizer allows its user to sonically dominate listeners with a wide range of tone. The Demonizer’s analog preamp design reacts like a tube amp's combined preamp and power amp sections. By controlling knobs that shape amplitude and frequency, the Demonizer's Bionic EQ allows massive tone shaping in both the Pre and Post tube stages. The Demonizer also features a revolutionary magic-eye biofeedback meter™ that organically reacts to your performance levels.

The Womanizer embodies a broad range of tones coveted by generations of classic rock guitarists. With pure Class A Distortion powered by cascading tube gain-stage circuits, the dual 12AX7 topology is bursting at the seams with an unbridled range of tone. Like the Demonizer, the Womanizer is also equipped with analog Opto-compression, pre/post EQ, and magic eye biofeedback meter. Demonizer and Womanizer Feature:
  • Dual 12AX7’s
