Tips for USE
It can used as a standalone overdrive pedal for an infinite flavor of overdrive tones and is NOT designed for clean boost. However, the pedal can be used to boost an analog distortion like Big Muff, during this operation the gain should be kept at moderate and volume should be adjusted in such a way that the distortion doesn’t sound fuzzy.
The combination insignia overdrive and analog distortion gives you a very dynamic sound suitable for beautiful warm lead tone with lot of dynamics transparency. A hint of analog delay and mild analog chorus can create heavenly tones.
