The GAS-909 offers the same technical features as the GAS-808, there is just one remarkable difference: the 909 offers three times more gain resources than the 808!!! That exactly makes this pedal interesting for players always missing that little extra layer of distortion in the sound of the TS-808. The GAS-909 offers offers creamy and sparkling lead sounds still based on the original characteristics of the 808.
Made out of specially dimensioned and selected components it fits into the existing sound harmonically well without really sounding like an external pedal, but more like a part of the amplifier itself. Being more likely an Overdrive than a distortion pedal the GAS was not created to give you a frequent-twisting overall distortion, it just emphasizes the whole frequenzy spectrum with a good and tasty shot of raunchiness. Perfect for boosting the amplifier sound without loosing or changing its natural characteristics.Operational units upside:
On the upside you will find the Footswitch, the Jewel-LED, Tone, Drive and Output Level Controls. The Output Level Control is placed left beside the Jewel-LED. It in- or decreases the output volume. The knob is small that it can't accidently be harmed while stepping on it.
You will also find the knobs for the Drive- and Tone Level on the top of the pedal. The Tone Knob adds or diminishes the highs in the sound, the Drive Knob in- or decreases the overdrive value of the sound.
The Footswitch itself is a true-bypass long-life switch. If the GAS is turned off the guitar signal gets passed through to reach the amp without any loss.The chosen Jewel-LED is of the kind you find on older vintage amplifiers.
With a Switch you find lefthandside the pedal (next to the output jack) you have the opportunity to run the LED intensity in eatherway High or Low Mode. The Low Mode can be helpfull when running the pedal on battery.
Bass Boost Switch: The Bass Boost switch on the right side of the pedal lifts or lowers the lower frequenzies - the overall sound stays defined without getting muddy.
Jacks: You will find the Input Jack righthandside and the Output Jack lefthandside the GAS-808. The battery will automatically be turned of when the cable at the Input Jack is plugged off.
External power supply: On the rear side of the pedal you can find the Jack for an External Power Supply. Its a standard jack (2,1mm). You can use the usual adapters for floor effects (9V DC,+ = outside ring, ground = inside). If an external power supply is connected the internal battery turns off automatically.
LED 'High - Low'- switch: This Switch dims or brightens the intensity of the Jewel-LED. The brightness is enormous and will help you to see the adjustment of the pedal on an however lit stage. When running the effect on battery we recommend to turn the switch to 'Low'-mode to increase the battery.
