Almost a year in the making, The Gale is a complex and harmonically rich distortion/fuzz with custom-designed Germanium, discrete operational amplifier architecture that covers a huge range of distortion, drive, and fuzz tones. The unique shape control allows you change the way the clipping circuit behaves with high and low pass filters, making it super-interactive with the tone control. You can get some light-drive edge all the way to blistering fuzz. It does low gain incredibly well but gets VERY hairy VERY fast. Version 2 includes cosmetic and minor circuit changes only.
We always recommend isolated power supplies. If you daisy chain effects on one supply or use a low-quality product, you may inject noise, ripple, ground loop hum, etc. This effect requires 9v, center negative power. In other words, the industry standard power supply. Current draw: 4.5mA
Demo note: The old graphics feature the same circuit as the new, so don't be alarmed if the pedal in some of the demo videos does not look the same. It sounds the same!
