or 4x fortnight payments of $50.50 AUD with ⓘ
Transparent GAIN, dynamic smooth OVERDRIVE, thick rich DISTORTION
The Holy Fire takes a different approach than the typical overdrive distortion pedal. This ultra-wide bandwidth pedal responds like a tube without changing your tone and has an extremely low noise floor.
Clean Boost - from off to +12dB.
Overdrive - analog wave shaping tube emulator technology.
Distortion - Hard edge clipping circuitry.
Hi-cut filter to shape edges for vintage speaker simulation.
Unique LED interaction indicates the transition to wave shaping.
Includes a 48VDC universal 90 to 260VAC small power supply.
Small footprint 3.1" x 4.25".
Typical distortion pedals use a ton of gain and clipping. This creates a lot of unwanted noise which needs to be heavily filtered and that thins out the tone. The Holy Fire introduces the world to analog wave-shaping technology to re-shape the waveform and achieve tube-like FX without adding noise or heavy filters. The pristine analog process preserves all of your original tone.
This makes the Holy Fire overdrive distortion a very musical pedal that responds to your touch. Play with a softer attack and velocity for a cleaner sound, or dig in to get as much grit as you want. You control the effect with your playing dynamics and the volume of your instrument. Great for guitar or bass! Like a tube preamp in a pedal, but without the bulky, fragile and expensive tubes and transformers.
Quick Start Guide
1. Start with "G" (Gain) at noon, "O" (Overdrive) and "D" (Distortion) all the way off (Counter-Clockwise) and the "~" (Hi-Cut) all the way up (Clockwise). At this point as you click the pedal in and out the sound should be pretty much the same.
2. Then as you turn up the "O" the level will increase and begin to overdrive. You may want to turn down the "G" to keep the volume at unity.
3. Then as you turn up the "D" the sound will begin to clip and past 2 o' clock it will start to compress and you may want to bump-up the "G" to make-up a little volume.
4. The "~" Hi-Cut control will shave off the highs as you turn in down.
5. The "O" and "D" knobs interact with each other to create unique blends of the two.
