Thunderbird

$245.00
$245.00

This is our Thunderbird, it’s a combination of our Velvet Drive and our Earlybird overdrives. This is our most popular pedal for a reason! You have a plethora of tonal possibilities whether you’re boosting the Earlybird with the Velvet Drive set clean, running each circuit individually, or stacking them both to take it into that higher gain, almost fuzz-like range. Add in the fact you have six knobs to tweak, a bass boost, and the ability to stack it with other pedals and we have a feeling this pedal won’t be leaving your pedalboard.

 

The Thunderbird takes 9V DC power (center negative) and is wired true-bypass. It comes in drawing under 100mA.

Midnight Drive

$215.00
$215.00
This is our Midnight Drive, it’s a combination of our Velvet Drive and Juggy Boost. Together you get both the individual circuits to utilize and the ability to stack them both. You’ll find that stacked these two circuits work in great harmony. The Juggy Boost takes the Velvet Drive into soaring lead tones that are sure to cut through the mix, this is perfect if you’re looking for two stages of volume and gain. If you’re looking for a higher gain overdrive with a lot of volume, this pedal will fit that bill as well when stacked due to the Juggy adding it’s own bit of dirt into the tone of the Velvet Drive. This pedal is set with the Velvet Drive on the input side and the Juggy Boost on the output side.

 

This pedal takes 9V DC power (center negative) and is wired true-bypass.

KLONE

Klone

$169.00
$169.00
**Limited run of 100**
 

The Klone is our take on the highly sought after mythical beast of an overdrive. We use D9E diodes, an internal toggle to switch between buffered and true-bypass, and have gotten this pedal as true to the original as possible. It can be used as a clean boost, a stand alone overdrive, or stacked with other pedals to create some seriously good tones. You won't be disappointed in our Klone if you're looking for an affordable but highly accurate version of this overdrive.

This pedal takes 9V DC power (center negative) and is set to the buffered setting by default.

Earlybird

$169.00
$169.00

**Earlybirds are currently out of stock, expect a two to three week turn around when ordering for the time being.**

This is our Earlybird, based on the classic Marshall Bluesbreaker circuit. First and foremost, we took the classic Bluesbreaker circuit and just about double the volume. As some of you may know, the original Bluesbreaker circuit suffered from a very weak volume output and we have alleviated that with our Earlybird. We’ve changed a few component values as well to fatten up the tone a little and add a little bit more gain sweep to the pedal.

In the Earlybird you will notice that all three knobs play off of each other quite a bit. When you roll the gain back, it will change the character of the tone and volume also and the same goes for rolling the gain all the way up. So use your volume and tone knobs to dial it in once you change the gain. This is one of the characteristics of the original Bluesbreaker that we liked, it gives it a bit of a different feel than your standard overdrive. Check out the comparison demo that Curtis Kent did below to really see the changes we made to the original circuit.

Velvet Drive

Velvet Drive

$169.00
$169.00

This is our Velvet Drive, our take on the classic 808 overdrive. We’ve taken the classic circuit and made some revisions to it that we feel bring it to a new and great sounding level. First we focused on removing a little bit of that mid-hump the 808 is notorious for so you won’t sit so far in front of the mix when playing live. Then we added our bass boost toggle to fatten up the tone when needed. Along with those changes, we’ve added and changed some component values to put our own flavor on the character of the clipping, sweep of the tone knob, and other aspects.

With three simple knobs and a toggle, you’ll easily get accustomed to shaping the tone of the pedal. However, even with just three knobs you have a lot of tonal capability as the volume, tone, and gain with the bass boost all play off of each other. Stack this pedal with other overdrives, distortions, and fuzzes and you’ll see exactly where this pedal shines the most.

Juggy Boost

Juggy Boost

$99.00
$99.00
This is our Juggy Boost. It has a small footprint but a very BIG sound. It can be utilized as a light clean boost up until about 11 o'clock on the knob. After that it starts to get a tad dirty (and louder) as you turn the knob. Alone it can add a very light, amp-like saturation to your tone and stacked after an overdrive, distortion, or fuzz it can boost your decibels and take your tone to a wonderful place (we set this up in our Midnight Drive with our Velvet Drive and Juggy if interested). You can also place the Juggy before your drive section to add in saturation and a little less decibels, this works very well for tone shaping your drive section.
BASS PLAYERS:  This boost is one of the better boosts we've tried on bass, highly suggest giving it a try!
The Juggy Boost takes 9V DC power (center negative) and is true-bypass.

J-Buff (Buffer)

$65.00
$65.00

April 30th, 2016:  BY PLACING AN ORDER YOU ARE PRE-ORDERING THIS PEDAL! This pedal will officially be released in mid-May, you can however go ahead and pre-order to reserve your place in line and ensure you get one when they are released. Due to the amount of inquiries about the J-Buff we have had, it’s possible that after the initial release they could be on back order for a number of weeks, so go ahead and pre-order! 

__________________________________________________________

This is the Keisman J-Buff!

There are a number of sources that can lead to signal degradation resulting in high end loss in your tone. If you’re running over 18.5 feet of cable, even without pedals, you’re going to lose some of the high end in your signal. If that’s the case, you will benefit from running a buffer. It will bring that high end back into your signal taking it back to it’s original glorious tone.

Another source can be a pedal it’s self! For example, the certain popular volume pedal is notorious for sucking your tone and leaving you with a flat, floppy, lifeless signal. So, by placing a buffer like our J-Buff on your board, you can alleviate that loss in tone and still be able to use that particular pedal causing the issue.

We suggest running the buffer at the very end of your pedalboard for a couple of reasons. Number one, this puts it closest to the amp preventing you from losing more signal after the buffer due to cable length. Second, buffers tend to not play nice if placed in front of some pedals, especially fuzz pedals, so placing them after allows the fuzz to get hit with the original signal and go through the buffer retaining it’s original sound. However, as with any pedal, experimentation is the best way to figure out what works best for you.

All buffers are not made equal either, you’ll find some of the internal buffers in effects pedals are not doing their job quite as well as a dedicated buffer like ours can. At trade shows we often showcase this by allowing someone to play our demo board through an amp with a popular buffered pedal at the end of the board. We then pull that pedal off and replace it with our buffer and let the person play through the board again and this typically converts people to using a dedicated buffer like ours. The difference is very noticeable!

ABY SWITCH

ABY Switch

$65.00
$65.00

**Our ABY Switch is currently out of stock, however you can go ahead and preorder. They will be in stock again and shipping out to customers in about a week and a half.**

This is our ABY Switch. The ABY Switch is utilized to both switch between two different outputs (like our AB Switch) but also with the second switch (on the right) it allows you to turn both output signals on simultaneously. This is especially useful when running two amps or wanting to split a mono signal into a stereo (multi-input) pedal.

This pedal takes a 9V DC power supply (center negative) to power the LEDs.

(This pedal does not take a stereo input at this time).

AB Switch

$55.00
$55.00

This is our AB Switch. You have one input and two outputs, a footswitch to toggle between the two outputs, and two LEDs that allow you to see which channel you are currently using. It can be used to switch between to amps, two pedalboards, two different sections of your pedalboard, or anything else you want to switch between on the output side of the pedal.

This pedal does take a 9V DC power supply (center negative) to power the LEDs.

We have been asked a number of times to make an AB to switch between two inputs. We will be offering a pedal that does just that soon!
