Egerys, meaning ‘opened’; in Cornish.
The old question of overdrive into boost, or boost into overdrive? Well, we’ve given you both. Various takes of these two circuits have been circulating for years. With some adjusting, tweaking and wiggling, we got them working happily together. This pedal can be obnoxiously loud, and can give a real kick in the stomach, or can be used just to bring out some beautiful depth and character in your existing sound. It will nail leads, and crunch those rhythms.
The overdrive section has its focus on control between gain stages. There are also 3 clipping options, chosen to mimic lower wattage amps, a tighter mid-range, and full-on power trains. The amount of additional clipping can be easily adjusted in the mix. A simple, but highly effective, tone control allows you to tune your sound that will either be your output, or will lead into your booster. The booster section then uses a low impedance FET pre amp design from the 1950’s (!) which has been used on numerous recordings since. A boost control, as well as additional subtle treble and bass, boosts via an internal dip switch providing numerous control options. The ability to switch the order of these stages opens many possibilities. How they react with your playing style, controlling gain between stages, is the key to a great sound!
