- controls the output level
- controls the amount of distortion and sustain
Tube amp tone it the stuff of legend. Since the inception of the electric guitar, musicians have sought ways to emulate the sound and response of a full-up, hard working tube amp without the hassles and high volume levels. Sure, tube amps can add grit to your tone, but there is also an x-factor - the tube "sag" that gives that biting compression and singing sustain that is nearly impossible to achieve without having your axe in close vicinity to a cranked amp.
The problem is, using a compressor and distortion together can yield a noisy, ugly mess that sounds more like a lawnmower than a great amp!
Lucky for you, Guyatone invented the SD-2. The SD-2 combines all these tube amp attributes into one pint-sized pedal that adds arena-sized tone and endless sustain to any size rig, at any volume! The SD-2's Level control varies the overall output volume while the Gain control increases the amount of drive and compression.
By varying these two simple controls, the SD-2 can offer everything from subtle boosts to creamy, violin-like tones that other distortions can only brag about! At maximum Gain settings the SD-2 literally latches onto notes, creating a singing sustain that will last until you take your fingers off the frets (if not longer)! Want a real treat? Plug your bass guitar into the SD-2 and feel it come alive!
If you need tube amp response without tube amp volume, there's only one answer: The SD-2!
