This pedal came about from a desire to capture one of the most desirable overdrive/distortion sounds from the late â€˜70s. allowing the true sound of the guitar and a player's technique to come through this pedal excels when used with the 25w speedster deluxe. knowing the abuse some pedals endure, joe valosay, our company's owner, with his aerospace machining background, decided to wrap it all up in a virtually indestructible package. this pedal is milled from a solid billet of aircraft grade aluminum and anodized for maximum durability. no expense is spared in pursuit of the finest and most beautiful effects pedal ever made!
