Another cool hand-wired pedal from the workshop. Hand-wired. Tube powered.
Simple to operate with Volume, Lube (aka gain), and tone knobs. This is a medium gain overdrive with plenty of output. It will thicken up your sound whether you're using high or low gain settings and is a great "always on" pedal with the lube set low and the volume high. It also works great as a preamp for acoustic guitars.
Comes with a 12AU7 tube. For more gain, you can swap it a 12AT7. It will NOT work with a 12AX7 due to the power requirements of the tube.
It runs through the tube. When you turn the pedal on via footswitch, it takes a moment for the tube to warm up--it's a super-cool effect.
The video in this listing is of the same circuit in another enclosure. It sounds the same as this pedal
Uses 9v/500mA center negative power supply (not included). This pedal does not use batteries.
