is our take on the classic overdrive pedal. But this one has two faces.
On one hand it can be used as a normal overdrive pedal with not too
much gain dialed in but with higher volume settings to saturate your
tube preamp section. On the other hand it also sounds amazing as a
standalone distortion unit in front of a clean transistor amp. So
either in a high volume setting where you can crank up your amp or in a
low volume setting as in your bedroom, the Reamer is a perfect partner
for good tone.
its flexibility are two switches to preshape the guitar signal. A
“Lo” and a “Hi” cut/boost.
While standard OD pedals use a rather narrow frequency band with cutted
basses and highs to push your tube preamp with mids the Reamer has two
switches to shape your sound. The “HI” switch lets
all the brilliances of your guitar tone into the distortion circuit
resulting in a much more aggressive tone. The “LO”
switch controls the bass frequencies. If switched to
“+” you get much more compression making
your sound fat and rich. With both set to “-” you
get the normal OD frequency range.
overall character of the Reamer is anything but standard. Gritty and
dirty, smooth and fat, punching in the mids, there are tons of
different sounds in this pedal. Make ´em yours!
