This is a pedalboard-friendly compressor and germanium distortion pedal. The compression (sustain knob) is powered by an optical sustainer that can be blended with the dry signal and offers a lot of clean noiseless sustain with fast attack. The optional Grit knob blends in a germanium-style vintage distortion that can add a crunch or get into midrange-heavy distortion tones for lead playing.
Note: For reference, this pedal is now called Philosopher’s Gold (same circuit but only the name and design has been changed). Available with box. Bengaluru
