This is an analog pedal manufactured by hand in the USA by Protone is the signature model guitar Misha Mansoor of Periphery. Here we have a case has changed celon recommendations of their model the deadhorse release.
Then it's very simple for users of other Tubescreamer and you will not be lost. Three knobs: Volume and Tone Drive found in all the OD.
The particularitée of that is the addition of a switch called "attack" which reduces the gain reduces the low frequencies and boost the high mids slightly.
It also has a switch "LED" that can change the way in which the diode going cliper (useful only when you put the drive)
Warning: No power supply provided.
This pedal is the modern version of the Tubescreamer (which starts to get old ... from now). Many guitarists, mainly in metal, use a TS in order to provide a straighter and more Detailed sound is their high gain amps do not use the distortion and using only the tone and volume. However, the TS were never designed to ca. Here ProTone create this pedal knowing the use that guitarists would. It shows an absolutely stunning product. This pedal adds clarity and definition to your sound. It feels every interaction potentiometers on the sound you desire a little carved. Insert in front of a High gain amp this small pedal does wonders in revealing the character of the latter. When one starts the switch attack is even more stunning! For large, complex (6 or 7 strings) agreements we feel the articualation of this one every note and well deffini, the lower strings do not come to spoil the sound of the high strings and vice versa, everything is clear while keeping the agresivité and the heaviness of the distortion produced by the amplifier. I also tested this pedal on a standard Fx axis, despites the sound quality of this one many feel the "digital" sound, well I must admit that with the protonated insert in this impression is completely erased it really adds an analog grain interesting and very pleasant (tested on a pod hd pro the result is the same)
But its use is not limited to high gain amp insert. I also use a low or I use this time the distortion it provides can range from a modern and well defined across the spectrum crunch has a "filthy". Even finding a clean guitar amp or distortion is produced by the protonated. For bluesy lead is extra.
I use it for about 6 months and I must say it is my ultimate weapon for my guitar sound. It adds aggresivité and clarity in my game I highly recommende!
I have long used Maxon OD and referenced as classic TS9 I thought unassailables. well I must admit that the Protone detronnent far.
What I like most is the clarity and detail has brought the game and particularly thanks to the switch "attack"
The value for money is really interesting! More expensive than the concurrency but do not forget that it is assembled by hand.
I would do for this choice.
