The High Octane's main focus is clarity, response and versatility. The goal for this pedal was to produce a rich, complex, low to mid gain overdrive with a penchant for British tones, in a simple package with lots of output. This drive is smooth and full bodied yet crisp and clear with bite. Highly responsive to player dynamics, pick attack and guitar output, it cleans very well up as you reduce your guitar's volume.
The High Octane's gain ranges from a natural clean boost to a gritty low to medium gain OD. We have included a 2-way Mode switch providing modern and vintage overdrive characteristics. The modern mode relies on MOSFET technology to provide a natural, crisp, uncompressed breakup and high output. The vintage mode provides extra compression, added saturation and a warmer, more rounded overdrive tone. We have also included a specially tuned Tone control to help dial in just the right tonal balance. Great on its own and equally alive when layered and textured with other boosts and OD's or dirty amps!
The Holy Grail of Overdrives!
