Pettyjohn Electronics Iron Pedal on RigShare
The Pettyjohn Iron is the first offering in their new single pedal format, The Foundry Series, and it draws inspiration from the left channel of the flagship Signature overdrive, The PettyDrive. The Iron is built with the same audiophile components as its predecessor so it retains the smooth, harmonically rich edge-of-breakup to full-throttle overdrive tones found in the original. The Iron has been voiced to provide a large range of gain and tone shaping to compliment any playing style and be at home in any rig as a foundational part of a player’s sound.
The Iron transcends normal shortcomings of many overdrive pedals found on the market today, featuring a full, natural tonal range that allows your guitars tone and playing nuances to shine through while imparting punch and depth with natural, musical harmonic weight and presence often associated with cranked American style amps. Huge internal headroom and carefully selected parts contribute to an open sound with less compression and less harsh in-harmonic distortion artifacts then your average overdrive pedal. At times, you may even forget you have a pedal on as the sweet harmonics and saturation may just become a part of your base tone that you never want to plug-in without again!

  • Wide gain range with 3 wide sweet spot zones:
    Zone 1: Low Gain Harmonically Rich Preamp/Boost
    Zone 2: Touch sensitive, Edge of Break Up
    Zone 3: Fully saturated Lead Channel Overdrive
  • Clean Mix control: Features a warm bypass preamp circuit for adding extra depth and transparency
  • Clipping Selection: Three carefully selected Clipping options for distinctly usable breakup characteristics include MOSFET, LED, and Asymmetrical Silicon
  • Low Cut Selection: Three carefully selected Low Cut frequencies interact with the gain control and clipping section to provide easy recall for different guitars, amps, even bass!
  • High Cut: Musical passive tone circuit with an Orange Drop tone cap for authentic vintage amp style tone shaping
  • High Performance Power: Dual-rail power section with 9V to 18V operation range, providing 18V-36V of voltage swing for huge internal headroom while drawing under 100mA
  • Audiophile, Studio-Grade Performance in a Pedal:
    Burr Brown OPA series high-performance audiophile Op-Amps
    Audiophile grade, through-hole 1% Metal Film resistors
    Top shelf WIMA and Silver Mica caps used in tone sensitive operations
    Internally Direct Coupled stages for purest signal path possible
