(EN) Introduction
Congratulations! You have just bought a distortion pedal that personifies rock and represents
all that is good about distorted tones. This pedal will inspire your riffs, licks and leads for years
to come.
This pedal defines instant gratification and will become the go-to distortion pedal on your board.
Initially, you simply plug it in and start rocking, but its many great sounds will have you playing with it
for years to come. From bluesy crunch to hi-gain, but always very musical distortion sounds, this pedal
was designed for the guitarists who like things a bit (or extremely) dirty. Featuring an all-analog circuit,
dual-band tone controls, level and drive knobs and a voicing switch to tweak both bass response and
distortion, you are set from creamy leads over riff-heavy stadium rock to modern angst-ridden grunge.

Connecting
Input jack – 1/4 inch mono jack input.
If you run the pedal on battery, we recommend removing the
input jack to preserve battery power when you don’t play.
Output jack – 1/4 inch mono jack output for connecting to
another pedal or directly into an amp or mixer.
Power in – Use a 9 VDC power supply with the following
symbol:

The Controls
BASS & TREBLE
Bass/treble controls. Add bass for more punch or roll off a bit for a tighter sound on big cabinets. Add
treble to cut through a dense mix or reduce to aim for a softer tone.
Gain
Controls the amount of gain.
Lower settings give tight distortion for rhythm parts. Higher settings are ideal for singing leads.
LEVEL
Sets the overall level.
Voice Type selector
Two Voice types are available. With the switch in “up” position, the frequency response is true to the
input signal. With the switch in “down” position, the low-end frequencies are naturally boosted. This is
excellent where the guitar is allowed to take up a great portion of the sonic spectrum, – e.g. for rhythm
guitar in a trio.
7
Changing battery – Unscrew the thumb-screw on the back of the pedal and detach the back-plate.
Unmount the old battery and attach the new battery to the battery clip making sure the polarity is
correct. Then remount the back-plate. To save battery life, remove the input jack when you don’t play.
Batteries must never be heated, taken apart or thrown into fire or water. Only rechargeable
batteries can be recharged. Remove the battery when the pedal is not being used for a longer
period of time. Dispose batteries according to local laws and regulations.
