Fender Powerhouse Strat. Is it Same DB Boost as Clapton Strat?


Silver Supporting Member
Yes. No. I mean NO, Yes.
I have one.
No, the db boost is less but it is the same preamp except for a slight mod.
Go to the Fender Forum and search around for details.


I think the Clapton is a 25db boost and the Power House is a 12 db boost. As TT said though, it's the same preamp, just throttled back in the Power House. Easy to turn it loose for full effect.
