Seymour Duncan Power Grid Distortion
In a new effort to expand its effects pedals range, Seymour Duncan released the Power Grid Distortion.
A high gain, solid state distortion stompbox, the Power Grid is said to be capable of myriad tones thanks to a three-band active EQ section and versatile enough to be used for all genres of rock.
The Power Grid was designed to provide powerful overdrive and distortion suitable for rhythm and lead playing, thanks to five stages of class A, discrete circuitry, which are cascaded to provide nearly 100dB of gain. Yet, the Power Grid is not an untamed beast as all this raw horsepower is managed by a multi-element gain and volume control system that allows fine control. If cranking the gain, will provide a very thick, saturated “Modded British” distortion reminiscent of the big guitar sounds that defined metal, backing the gain off will deliver a responsive “crunch” sound similar to the Rhythm Channel on Seymour Duncan's SFX-03 Twin Tube Classic -- with of course several intermediate distortion settings in between.
Each band of the 3-band active EQ allows for up to 12dB of boost or cut at frequencies selected for maximum control of the electric guitar.
A demonstration video is available at Seymour Duncan's website.
