More than a remarkable achievement, HardWire™ represents a collection of
significant improvements in effects pedals for guitar. HardWire pedals provide a suite of well-known effects, each with superior tone and control. But
these pedals go above and beyond their peers to provide such distinguishing
features as true bypass and high voltage operation, making them essential
additions to the signal chain of players who know about sound quality and
demand the utmost in performance.

What Does This Do?
1. Level Knob - Controls the distortion output level. Turn the knob
clockwise to increase and counter-clockwise to decrease the output
2. DC Adapter Jack - Connect (an optional) Harman PS200R
power supply to this jack. Use the proper supply for your area’s
mains line voltage.
3. High Knob (center) - Controls the level of high frequency (treble) boost/cut in the distortion effect. Turn the knob clockwise to
increase and counter-clockwise to decrease treble level.
4. Low Knob (ring) - Controls the level of low frequency (bass)
boost/cut in the distortion effect. Turn the knob clockwise to
increase and counter-clockwise to decrease the bass level.
5. Mid Knob (center) - Controls the level of midrange boost/cut in
the distortion effect. Turn the knob clockwise to increase and counter-clockwise to decrease the mid frequencies.
6. Freq knob (ring) - Controls the Midrange frequency that the Mid
knob boosts and cuts. Range is 200 Hz to 5.0 kHz.
7. Gain Knob - Controls the overall distortion gain. Turn the knob
clockwise to increase and counter-clockwise to decrease the
amount of distortion gain.
8. Voicing Switch - This switches between the Metal Distortion’s
two voicings. Tight provides a punchy articulated low-end response.
Loose creates a thick heavy low end for grinding rhythm playing.
9. Input - Connect your instrument or the output of another pedal
to this jack. This jack enables battery power to the pedal when connected. To prolong battery life, disconnect the cable from the Input
jack when not in use. If the optional Harman PS200R power supply
is used, cables can remain connected.
10. Foot Switch Release Pins - These two pins are spring loaded
hinges that hold the Foot Switch in place. See page 7 for information on accessing and changing the battery.
11. Indicator LED - Lights when the effect is turned on. When battery power is low (approximately 15 minutes before it dies), the
Indicator LED begins to dim giving you advanced warning that very
shortly you will need to replace the battery.
12. Foot Switch - Turns the effect on and off.
13. Output - Connect this output to the input of your amplifier or the
input of another pedal.
Note: Use unbalanced mono instrument cables only.
Amplifier Setup
Battery Operation
In the event that battery power is completely depleted, HardWire pedals
automatically switch into bypass. This eliminates the need to remove the
pedal from your pedal chain if the battery is dead. To replace the battery, do
the following:
1. Using the tip of a 1/4” guitar cable, push in one of the Release Pins in on
either side of the Foot Switch, and remove it from the pedal chassis.
2. Remove the battery from the battery compartment and disconnect the
battery cable.
3. Connect a new battery to the battery cable and put it back in the battery compartment. Make sure the battery cable does not interfere with
the spring or pedal switch arm.
4. Place one hole of the Foot Switch over its corresponding pin.
5. Push the opposite pin in and lower the other side of the Foot Switch
into place over the depressed pin. Release the pin. When the Foot
Switch is properly fastened, both Release Pins are flush with the outer
side of the pedal.
