Whirlwind "Gold Box" Distortion





This classic handwired tank of a box delivers a wide range of sonic distortion from a subtle, warm, tube-driven tone to balls-to-the-walls searing hot overdrive, with that vintage sustain and classic tone you grew up with.

A note from CCR's stage manager Tommy Mack:

    Hey Willy, Thanks a bunch for sending the new pedals. I finally had time between the road and home to check 'em out. They are awesome!

    I think these boxes sound like the original versions (MXR) but, better. More of a vintage/modern sound and clearly more attention to the highs and lows that are expected by players with an ear for that (If anyone can still hear..ha!). The distortion (gold) was a blast from the past with a modern touch... just fun as hell. Loved the phase as well, the cycles were smooth and very pronounced. All in all you've got a great product on your hands and I hope you have mucho success partner. Thanks a bunch again from all of us at the CCR camp for being so helpful and accommodating.
