Tone Monk Seed of Life



Tone Monk

Our Seed of Life Professional Overdrive was developed for guitarists to end their ultimate quest for tone. In the beginning of 2010 we released our Seed of Life VII and took the circuit a few steps further. There are several features in the circuit of the Seed of Life that allow you to actually control your tone. An Input control that controls your input the way a tube preamp does. With the texture options and controls of this pedal you have the power to shape your tone in ways you have never heard it before. The 3-way texture switch offers an array of saturations from transparent to colored tube driven qualities. The Form EQ control allows you to roll off high end frequencies at half the rate that it accentuates low-mid frequencies, in reaction to the texture you choose, to 'form' your over all tone. The drive control works as gain drive saturation. All controls interact with each other, so you can literally get thousands of sweet spots and finally have the ability to create your own sound.

The Lush/Fat option allows you to choose between the standard rich tone of the Seed of Life and a wider tonal option. Many players who use a combination of Humbucking, Single coil, and P90 pickups find this feature to be extremely useful and a breeze to compensate for the change in pickup output/tone on the fly without having to actually change the tonal settings on the pedal.

All of our pedals are hand built, one by one, and include:

  • A combination of silver, lead free, and rosin core solders where needed in the circuit.
  • No PC mounted potentiometers, switches or jacks- everything hand wired.
  • 22 gauge silver/copper/tin wiring where needed for minimal resistance and proper conductivity.
  • WIMA, Panasonic, and Xicon (electrolytic) capacitors. All tested.
  • All properly matched diodes.
  • CLIFF Switches and Switchcraft Jacks.
