Retro-Sonic Announces Distortion Pedal
Retro-Sonic Inc. announces the latest addition to their popular vintage-inspired boutique effect pedal line.
The Distortion pedal is based on a LM308 op-amp design, and features true bypass with Distortion, Tone and level controls. Together, these provide a wide range of tonal possibilities, from subtly distorted blues tones through to classic rock and metal.
As added flexibility, Retro-Sonic has incorporated two internal trim pots to allow adjustment to the frequency response of the gain structure. This gives Distortion users the option to tailor the overall response of the pedal to taste, by reducing or increasing the mix of high or low end content. More tonal flexibility can be explored through multiple clipping options via a 3 position mini toggle switch selects symmetrical-diode, asymmetrical-diode, or LED clipping.
The Retro-Sonic Distortion is a professional quality effect pedal that aims at recapturing the much sought-after "vintage vibe". According to the manufacturer, it is a truly versatile and musical pedal design that responds to touch, producing a big, natural, harmonically rich tone that works with any guitar-pedal-amp configuration.
The Distortion effect pedal uses a standard negative tip 9v adaptor or battery. Highest quality components, handmade details and stringent testing, set the Retro-Sonic line above other boutique effects.
The Retro-Sonic Distortion effect pedal will officially be presented at Summer NAMM in Nashville, June 20-22, 2008. Product will ship in June, 2008 at a yet unspecified price.
