Tremond distortion

Effects: Fuzz, Silicon

Classic guitar distortion and the most versatile bass tool? Here you go. Tremond begins as distortion based on a classic rat pedal with very few changes in the circuit to enhance it's operation not affecting the tone. Actually it is a mix of early bix box tone knob and whiteface specifications, made to sound really good with true vintage tone quality. Obviously it's equipped with genuine LM308n IC. Additional feature is clipping mode switch to replace stock silicon diodes (classic, high gain, tough sound) with asymmetrical LED + germanium combo (for more crunchy, kinda clear breakup feel, great for lower gain settings or additional boost at high gain), or to omit clipping diodes (to provide huge load of ICs distorted boost).

Magic starts with Tremond's blending possibilities. Mix in any amount of your dry signal with the blend knob. Need to roll in only low-end from the guitar tone? No problem, switch 'DRY/LPF' to LPF position which boosts only low frequencies provided by your instrument and use trimpot inside to set desired freq cutoff. Moreover, the clean/dry channel is not really a true dry - it is a parallel mosfet booster to deliver lot of gain to spend. This boost is also not 100% clean and sparkle sounding as most mosfet boost pedals on the market. It warms up the tone and rolls off some of the high end, also adding bit of breakup with hot pickups or heavy playing - all to match well with distortion side. There's another trimpot inside to set level of the boost. So you get two pedals in one with the blend. Fancy, isn't it?

With this device you can do anything you'd expect from a dist box. Simple boost? Check. Tone enhncer, simple EQ? Check. Generic retro drive with lot of mids? Check. Modern midscooped and sparkling distortion? Device turning a toneless guitar into an kickass tone ripper? That's right. Anything else? You name it, Tremond makes it for you.

Please note: to keep superfluous plastics production as low as possible, all my pedals come without battery clip unless you need it.

This one does have a battery clip installed.
