Well, it's the year 2000 - time to SUPERCHARGE YOUR SOUND!
with the new all-tube SUPERCHARGER G.T.O.™ pedal from Soldano Custom Amplification.
That's right, it's all tube circuitry here, no IC's, no transistors, no tubes that are "just for looks" - this is the real thing!! This rugged pedal is built with the same exacting care and high quality that SOLDANO products are well known for. Two 12AX7 tubes operating at "real amp" plate voltages provide stable high gain amplification and hot output levels to get even the most mild mannered amp to scream! The SUPERCHARGER G.T.O.™ can be used both as a line driver and an overdrive pedal. It has three easy-to-use controls: Gain, Tone, and Output. Turning down the Gain and cranking up the Output delivers a clean, hot signal to the input of your amp, allowing you to overdrive your amp's own preamp. Cranking up the Gain and backing off the Output sends a shot of pure SOLDANO overdrive to the input of your amp or mixing board, giving it truly remarkable tone and sustain. If you're looking for true Hi-Performance in an overdrive pedal, ignore the rest and buy the best - SUPERCHARGER G.T.O.™
The SUPERCHARGER G.T.O. is an all tube overdrive pedal which incorporates the same circuitry used in our legendary 100w SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE. It is essentially the overdrive preamp section of the SLO in a pedal.
This ruggedly built device is very flexible and can be used both as a line driver and an overdrive pedal. It has three easy to use controls: Gain, Tone, and Output. You can set the Gain low and the Output high to cleanly overdrive the input of your amp, or set the Gain high and the Output low to get massive sustain at very low volumes, or any combination in between. The Tone control is useful for accommodating the overall brightness of the amp you are using this pedal with, as well as for adjusting tone when connecting the SUPERCHARGER directly to a P.A. or recording console.
The SUPERCHARGER G.T.O. plugs directly into a wall outlet and runs it's two 12AX7 tubes at full amp voltages, for a real tube sound. Additionally, it uses a relay for switching, providing an actual 'hardwire bypass ', so that it doesn't color your sound when you have it switched out.
If you are looking for true Hi-Performance in an overdrive pedal, ignore the rest and go for the best - SUPERCHARGER G.T.O.!
