Hilbish Design Sol-Invictus Dual-Channel Preamp and Distortion

Brand New
  • £286.00

Description & Specs

The super versatile dual channel distorion and preamp covers a lot of heavy ground! Based on the popular Hilbish Design Beta Preamp this pedal version features the same dual channel design, super dynamic drive controls going from clean tones to overdrive to all out fuzz, and three band active EQ. Channels can be run individually or in parallel via two foot switches. 

The Sol Invictus features an extensive IO selection. The instrument output allows the musician to use the Sol Invictus as a dual channel distortion/overdrive. The line out can be used to drive a poweramp directly for use as a pedalboard mounted preamp. The TRS balanced output can be used to go direct into the mixing board. Each channel also has its own output to be used as the front end for b-amp rigs (sending lows to one cabinet and high's to another). 

The Sol-Invictus turns any pedalboard into the perfect compact fly-in or travel rig. 

  • Top row controls channel a, bottom row controls channel b.
  • Drive: controls the amount of gain. From clean boost to fuzzed out!
  • Bass, Mid, Treble: three band active EQ controls can cut and boost, set center for  flat response. 
  • Level: controls the overall level of each channel.
  • Master: controls the overall level of the effect (not active when using ch a/ch b outputs).

  • Bypass: when using the inst output this footswitch switches between the clean instrument signal  and the effect signal. when using any of the other outputs (CHA, CHB, line, balanced) the bypass switch acts as a mute switch. 
  • Both Channels: When activated, turns both channel a and B on.
  • A/B Toggle: toggles between channel a (red) and channel b (green). 

  • Input: instrument level input for guitar, bass, synth, or whatever other noise maker you have.
  • CH A Out: line level output for channel a only.
  • CH B Out: line level output for channel b only.
  • INST Out: instrument level output, use for “effect pedal” operation into a guitar or bass amp. 
  • Line Out: line level output for use with power amp, mixing board, or DI. 
  • Balanced out: TRS balanced out for DI applications that require long cable runs. 

  • 9V 200ma center negative supply. using lower current supplies will cause the  pedal to not operate correctly!

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
