The Harp Break pedal provides clipping distortion with a full range of clean to full grit. The LED's used to provide the clipping produces a soft clipping distortion as the LED begins to conduct that is very similar to vacuum tube distortion. The soft clip is visibly evident by the dim lighting of the LED on the face of the pedal and as the DRIVE is increased the LED clips harder and begins to glow brighter, the brighter the LED, the harder the clip. The tone is very close the vacuum tube distortion but without the overtones produced by tubes. The tone is a much better tone than typical solid state distortion created by transistors. But that is not all the Harp Break features a 20db BASS BOOST control to add a fat bottom end to your tone. This pedal is a great tool to dirty up an otherwise clean amp, provide good distortion when going into a PA and providing a cool distorted sound during your gig, when the pedal is not used to produced distortion it can be used to fatten up your tone by providing a buffered FET input and the added bass provided by the BASS BOOST. The Harp Break offers all of this and a money back guaranty if you are not satisfied for any reason.
Settings are very basic; for a clean tone turn the DRIVE counterclockwise and turn clockwise as you desire more distortion. Increasing the DRIVE also increases volume so you will need to turn the VOLUME control down to prevent feedback. It is really simple, increase drive and decrease volume or decrease drive and increase volume. The Bass Boost will provide up to 20db of increased level in low frequencies that provides a lot of bottom for your tone.
