The updated version!
It uses two ECC83 tubes at high voltage to recreate some of the most sought after classic overdrive tones from times long ago! It now has a 6 way switch for selecting the bass response and a brand new treble EQ mode. Paired with the classic passive Baxandall bass/treble tone stack and a soft 2 frequency presence bump in the mids, there is plenty control for shaping the overdrive sound.
Another important ingredient in those old classic amps is the catodyne phase inverter and it’s quirks. When not overdriven, it’s very well balanced, but when you push it, good things happen! Well, good if you like “ugly” sounds… So, of course this pedal has a catodyne phase inverter both to drive the negative-feedback based presence control and to produce those sweet grainy overtones!
Since this pedal has a volume control on the output, you can turn it down for use as a regular pedal, or you can turn it up and really slam the grids of your favourite tube-amp. It evens sports enough signal to drive the poweramp directly if your amp has a poweramp-in or fx-return connection..
