Ess Maestro 2sc Es1970s Sound Dr

one of the main reasons i went with the maestro (and not the later es-2) was the fact that the es-2 does not come with a mic preamp. it's a great effect, but it takes a lot of work to make it sound good. on the other hand, the maestro has the advantage of being a preamp pedal, so you don't need to worry about the preamp being muddy or distorted when doing your tone sculpting.

unfortunately, with the es-2, the maestro's circuitry and the fz's circuitry are very similar, so the effects are identical. if you are able to find a complete es-2, it may be worth it to look at, because it will be a cheaper alternative.

the three different settings are all very subtle, but they do change the sound quite a bit. for example, the first setting has a more natural 'growl' to it, whereas the third setting is a bit more'spit and polish' with a bit less 'growl.' to make it sound more natural, set it at setting one. to make it sound more metallic, turn it up.

the first thing that you will probably notice is that the maestro has a very low range of dynamic range. that is, the volume knob has very little ability to make the amp go from whisper quiet to screamingly loud. i say "screamingly loud" because the maestro will sound distorted if you turn up the volume so much.

at the time of this writing, the maestro 2sc es1970s sound dr is selling for about $450 on ebay. unless you can find a used one, its going to cost you a pretty penny to get your hands on one. it can be tempting to buy it for the retro-cool factor, but please remember that it is a vintage piece of equipment and can have some real problems that you need to be aware of before you buy one. 3d9ccd7d82
