Shannon Distortion



The Shannon Distortion dishes out a wide range of low to high gain distorted tube-like tones. It is an improved hybrid design between a Boss DS1 and Ibanez SD9, but has the same output section as a TS808 in order to really push a tube amp. It can serve up light to medium blues/rock overdrive tones with the gain turned down, while producing massive Marshall crunch and tons of sustain with it turned up. The tone control is very effective at dialing in many shades of tube-like tone at various gain settings.

This pedal will turn your lower gain single channel tube amp into a raging beast!
