The Character Series pedals take their mojo from the most respected amp tones on both sides of the Atlantic. These pedals don’t just have a single character, they have the whole cast, plot and curtain call.
The Level and Drive controls work like a traditional, well-equipped amp. Low, Mid and High, however, are active, providing a wider array of tonal possibilities. Then there’s the Character knob, which is something quite unique. This continuously-variable control moves seamlessly between different model voicings, covering vintage, high-gain and face-melting lead tones. The Character and Mid controls, and the speaker emulations, are all engineered to personify the specific amplifier traits and speakers associated with each amplifier type. Put simply, we’ve crammed the entire lineage of each amp style into a funky little box.
We’re talkin’ ‘bout our generation of loudmouth yobbo tones. The massive headroom delivers the rich bell-like clean tones that drove the classic UK rock and pop bands of the ‘70s. Lean into high gain gear for a bare-knuckle growl that retains definition. Push it harder and you are live at Leeds. Laced with the aggressive punch of Fane®-style speaker emulation, this pedal is a windmill-inducing wizard.
