Spicetone 6appeal - Polyphonic Overdrive for Hexaphonic Guitars



Hexaphonic overdrive, distortion, fuzz, modulation, sequencer, filter & stereo pan pedal. Superb for guitars with hexaphonic pickups (13pin output like Godin or Roland GK, Cycfi Neo6 or Ubertar pickups), excellent for all electric guitars. Two LFOs and a sequencer for modulations. 6x24 customizable preset memories. Instant circuit mods (root boost pre and post effect, tone circuit on/off, different clipping styles). All-analog sound processing.

"If only Bob Dylan had one of these when he went electric." - Mr Nigel Cassidy, BBC News.

To get the most of 6Appeal, you need a guitar with divided pickups and 13pin DIN type output. Please understand that 6Appeal is a complicated device with 6+1 audio channels and over 1000 components, and we're a tiny bunch of enthusiasts, hence the hefty price. The sound 6Appeal delivers is truly unique and natural. It's your chance to stand out and conquer new tonal grounds.

NB! There is NO power adapter included, as you can power 6Appeal with a common guitar pedal adapter (9v-12v, 300mA min, 2.1mm plug).
