We designed this pedal to work well with various guitar and amp combinations, using every combination we could think of... vintage, boutique, budget, etc. Then, we spent a year sharing the pedals with session players in Nashville. This is the final product, and we like it a lot!
The controls are simple, just three knobs. Start with each control at 12:00 (midnight), and then experiment. We worked hard to make sure the 12:00 setting was a good starting place out of the box.
- Level: Level controls the volume of the output.
- Tone: Tone controls the darkness/brightness of the tone.
- Drive: Drive controls the amount of overdrive/distortion.
Notice the tone knob sweep is musical and usable through the entire range. As you back off the guitar’s volume pot, the pedal cleans up. At higher gain settings the sound does not collapse on itself. Descriptions are subjective, so listen to the audio clips to see if it is right for you.
