Sir-Gains-A-Lot Drive Pedal V2
The Sir-Gains-A-Lot V2 is a true bypass analog drive pedal. It is controlled by digi-pots so that the tones that you dial in can be saved as presets that will be recalled whenever you engage the pedal.
With Sir-Gains-A-Lot in your arsenal you can achieve anything from clean overdrive to fat, low end heavy, sustaining, high gain tone. The best part is that it is all achievable at unity volume. This means that when Sir-Gains-A-Lot is engaged, you can have anything from a clean drive tone to a thick high gain tone that is at the same exact volume level as your amp tone.
As far as functionality, the Top-end, Scoop, Gain and Boost knob positions are all savable to each of the pushbutton switches. This means that the tone settings that you saved to a pushbutton switch will be recalled when that button is pushed no matter where the knobs are currently positioned.
You may ask, ”Whats makes Sir-Gains-A-Lot different?” Well, with overdrive pedals it is all about the relationship between the pedal and the amp. The relationship is about the pedal pushing the front end of the amp to get that big overdrive tone. This also comes with a boost in volume level which is good when you want to be louder, but louder isn't always what is needed. The relationship between Sir-Gains-A-Lot and the amp is a lot different. To explain it easily, it is like Sir-Gains-A-Lot is the overdrive pedal and the first stage of an amp in one box. So in essence Sir-Gains-A-Lot overdrives itself then you can turn down the volume level to unity gain and send that to the amp.
To make your own preset, push one of the pushbuttons switches to un-bypass the pedal, turn the knobs to get your desired tone, then hold down that pushbutton switch until that LED blinks. The knob positions are now saved to that pushbutton until you make changes and save a new setting.
This pedal can only be powered by an external 9VDC source where the inside pin is negative. It has no 9V battery plug inside. This pedal DOES NOT come with a power supply.
