FREAK GUITAR - A signature model of Mattias "IA" Eklundh, a Swedish guitarist - one of the brightest, extraordinary and talented guitar virtuosos of the contemporary music world.
The new two-tube Overdrive/Distortion in the original box with a 1.5 mm stainless steel deck panel preventing tubes and controls from mechanical damage.
The semi-parametric MF equalizer is the major distinguishing feature of this device. Using two MIDDLE and MID FREQ knobs you can not only increase or decrease MF levels but also chose the band pass central frequency. This will give you a chance to control your instrument's tone more flexibly and variably as compared with other regular effects.
Besides, this innovation uses contact free Foot Switch. Each of the two foot switches is equipped with optical sensors which control the electromechanic relay switching between BYPASS - DRIVE, BYPASS - DISTORTION modes on/off by means of a microcontroller. Thus, we have eliminated the problem related to mechanical contacts wear-out due to frequent effects selection as in regular pedal effects.
