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.
We always recommend isolated power supplies. If you daisy chain effects on one supply you may inject noise, ripple, ground loop hum, etc. This effect requires 9v, center negative power. In other words, the industry standard power supply.
