Analog Man, in collaboration with Jim Weider, have come out with the pedal we have been looking for for many years - the King Of Tone (KoT). There are many overdrive pedals on the market, but none of them have been quite right, preserving the tone of the guitar and adding the right amount of overdrive without compromise. There are some good clean boosts available, but they just don't have enough drive to really give your amp the distortion you often want. There are some newer OD pedals that have a great frequency response, but to me they sound too DRY, a bit sterile and cardboardy. There are also some nice sounding pedals available but their sound is too "saturated", losing the touch and feel of your guitar. That is where the King Of Tone pedal comes in - it has enough warm overdrive but still preserves the tones of your quality guitars and amps. If you are looking for a big change in your sound, or a lot of distortion, this is probably not the pedal for you.
Can use a 9V battery, or 9V to 18Vdc. Some people really like the sound at 18V.
Can replace two or three pedals- Overdrive, Dist, and Clean boost.
True Bypass ON/OFF Switches, does not alter your sound when OFF.
Separate VOLUME knobs
Separate DRIVE knobs, drive amount is independant of volumes.
Separate TONE knobs
Hi 1 Mega ohm input impedance to keep guitar signal strong and clean
Internal TREBLE BOOST knobs, allow dull guitars or amps to shine.
Runs on internal battery or Boss style 9V DC power adaptor
Uses low current, about 6-10mA. Battery should last nearly 100 hours.
Medium size, big sound! Jacks on top for best layout on pedalboards.
Size is 4.75" wide, 3.75" long, and 1.5" tall not including switch etc (about 2 1/8" tall to the switch)
Super bright RED and YELLOW leds, you will know when it's on.
