Yet Another Overdrive

$170

EUREKA! Finally, we made it!

Well, this is our very first overdrive pedal ever which based on nothing. Although, the block diagram topology is very typical, high impedance JFET buffer which feed into non inverting clipping amplifier, but what makes this pedal different is there is extra output stage that can set as buffer, transparent boost, or “hot rodded” mid boost. After spending very long time for research and debating about what is best and what is crap FOR YEARS, finally we have actually made it! Even though at the same time we know that our overdrive circuit just becoming YET ANOTHER OVERDRIVE in the forest of stompboxes.

Description

 

Knobs:

  • Volume : I bet you already knew about what this knob can do.
  • Drive : Control the amount of gain.
  • Tone :  You might expect something in common that this knob

Can turn the sound from dark & muddy to bright & thin just like any tone controls out there. However, what this knob can do is bit different, when it is turn fully counter clockwise (ccw) there is low freq emphasis but the high freq would still there, it’s like flat frequency response with harmonic overtones, this setting work best for single coil pickup. Otherwise, when it is turning fully clockwise (cw) the low end would slightly disappear to create well balance glassy tone shaping.

 

Switches:

  • Clippiing  : This switch is to control clipping stage modes. There are 3 clipping configurations to choose; classic, full stacked & asym. The classic mode is the most common symmetrical back-to-back 2 diodes which is more compressed and smooth, the full stacked is similar to the classic mode but the additional diode was added in series for mor transparent and dynamic response, then the asym is asymmetrical configuration which makes the overdriven tone much sound like tube amp breakup.
  • Gain Palette: This switch is responsible for output stage’s setting. There are 3 modes for this toggle switch; calm, full, & mid. The calm mode is for smoother response, full is for transparent boost which is louder at full frequency response, then the mid is for 700Hz boost which make the overall tone much punchier and “hot rodded” very usable for pushing your amp, there are trimpot inside the box to set how much mid boost that you’re want to add at this stage.

Footswitch:

The footswitch used in this pedal are click-less relay based true bypass which is quieter and “pop free”. There is additional feature for this system, if you are press & hold the switch for at least 500 milli second it will be momentary on/off mode, so if you only need briefly overdriven tone for certain part of the song you can hold and press the footswitch and when it released the state will automatically back to off (bypassed), so instead of press it twice (on then off) you just need to press and hold it once. This mode can also be operates otherwise, so if the current state of the pedal is on you can press and hold the footswitch to make it briefly off (bypassed). Sounds so 21st century’s benefit, right?
