A high-end front end for all, from clean to nasty!

Born of the same DNA as the Horrothia FX Teeth, the Triage has your boost, grit and level covered!

Elements of the circuits are similar, but the Triage dwells on the wet side of the Teeth’s design.

Triage is an all-transistor, ground-up Horrothia design.

A JFET preamp feeds an overdrive stage made using a transistor based discrete opamp: no chip ICs here!

The overdrive stage has a voicing Mid Peak switch.

Off, the Triage is a full range boost. On, there is a distinct, carefully chosen mid-bump.

The HF balance control is a high frequency cut or boost: dialled to full, it acts like a hot knife through a band mix!

Front end preamp or overdrive? It’s both. Bass and acoustic as well as electric? Sure thing.

Dial it right down to use as a front end to brighten up vintage pickups? Yep.

Wind it right up for compressed crunchy overdrive? In spades!
