preamp of probably the rarest and most mysterious guitar amplifier from
Great Britain. In addition to the first-class sound characteristics, the

analogue Circuit with British Sound
At the heart of Aclam’s Dr. Robert is a full analogue UL730-style circuit
built by the Spanish effects company with carefully selected components
of the highest quality. Accordingly, the effect pedal delivers a
particularly dynamic overdrive with the coveted British chime.
versatile with 3-band EQ
In addition to the gain and volume controls for adjusting the distortion and output volume, the Dr. Robert from Aclam has a flexible 3-band EQ for precise tuning of the tone. The important mid control is located directly accessible on the top of the pedal, while the bass and treble controls are mini pots inside the pedal.
The Aclam Dr. Robert versatile also proves its worth when it comes to mounting the pedalboard. Thanks to the preparation for the Smart Track system,
the effect pedal can be mounted on the Smart Track pedalboards of the
Spanish company fixed by means of two thumbscrews accessible via the
sides of the housing. In addition, the pedal comes with precisely cut Velcro tape for traditional pedalboards.
