You sure that wasn't the "Mike Matthews Freedom Amp"?

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

I concur with RG, but then even though I used to read their ads and memorize them like scripture, I'm always finding out about EH products that came and went without me ever knowing about them.  
 
The Freedom Amp competed with the Pignose as one of the few "name" brand battery-powered amps during that period, but was quite a bit more substantial in terms of speaker size, power, and numbers of controls. Given that it was a solid-state device, it's quite possible that EH *may* have produced a pre-amp only version at some point, but personally this is the first I would have heard of such a thing.

"Big & warm & fat,this pedal can go from just a mild,simple volume boost to a lovely retro-style overdrive. Peace and Love,my Brethren !"

Well there you go. I WAS right. Just when I think I know the whole catalogue, up pops something I've never heard of.  
 
As to its "girth", who knows. If most pedals were as "fat" as they claim to be, you could stack em up and they would go to the moon. I'm sure somewhere there is an ad that claims how fat the Superfuzz was!

What is it about EH literature that makes you want to go out and immediately buy one!!!  
 
Or in this case, make one!
