Amzel Electronics Cheshire Cat - Tone Evaporator



Amzel Electronics

The Cheshire Cat puts you in charge of your distortion sound like never before. This is not a conventional distortion, fuzz or overdrive pedal. The patent-pending, all-analog design allows for a wide range of innovative adjustments. Get more out of your guitar!

You can use the high quality filter to adjust the frequency and resonance characteristics of the distortion - without affecting the musical tone. Fine tune the attack and sustain response with the unique accent knob. Go mad or stay cool with the injection level. There's also a conventional distortion control, and a handy volume knob that comes with a little extra kick should you need it.

For every application, the Cheshire Cat is a versatile and professional musical accessory that puts artistic sound control where it belongs: in the hands of the creative musician.


  • Distortion Control: Adjusts the distortion level from near clean to extreme crunch.
  • Injector Control: Increasing the injector increases the distortion and activates the Res, Freq and Accent controls.
  • Accent Control: Permits adjustment of the attack and sustain response.
  • Frequency Control: Adjusts the frequency characteristics of the distortion effect over a wide range, without affecting the tone of your instrument.
