Two in a trenchcoat

You’re looking at a pedal housing two distortion circuits in parallel. One of them is set to have a little less gain and more treble than the other. The result – massive, tangible sound, with a very unique character to it.

Here it is in a nutshell:

– two independent distortion circuits with common controls;
– built around the 4558 chip;
– true bypass;
– boost feature;
– regular 9V adapter operation;
– handmade reclaimed wood enclosures.

Need more detail? Here you go. So how does it work exactly? How does a dual distortion circut only have one set of controls? Well, the pedal’s circuitry takes the input signal and splits it in two, sending each to a separate distortion circuit. One of them is designed to have less gain than the other, and to accept less bass. It results in a clearer nad brighter distortion, with a more saturated and bassier background. The two signals get mixed, and sent to the tone control and volume control circuits. Gain control is different – the dual potentiometer controls the gain of the two stages at once, but however you turn it, the gain imbalance between them will always be there, preserving the pedal’s unique distortion quality. The pedal also has a boost switch. Engaging it will turn the red indicator light white and kick the both stages’ gain up significantly.

The pedals take regular 9V power. If you want more headroom and are willing to accept a little bit more noise, feel free to power it up with 12V.
