Pettyjohn Gold MKII Overdrive

USD $ 299.00

An update to the best selling Pettyjohn golden amp overdrive!

The Gold is renowned for its ability to sound and feel like a high-wattage Plexi-style amp.

Listening to feedback from players, Pettyjohn came up with a refined version of the Gold pedal that represents the very best they can engineer.

Upgrades include a new 36V dual rail power supply, a new Quiet Bypass system and many updates under the hood.

Pettyjohn gave the Gold MKII an extended gain range on both ends of the Gain control.

It now effectively goes from low gain, Plexi style edge of breakup tones, to all out JCM 800 gain levels.

The Gold MKII is loaded with a powerful 3-band EQ featuring a wide-range, sweepable Low cut and High cut filters and a powerful sweepable mid bell.

With an ultra wide gain range and extremely flexible EQ section, there is no amp the Gold MKII can’t transform into a formidable rock machine!

Powerful sweepable Mid range filter.

Extremely popular on Version 1, you can use this control to emulate a certain amp mid control.

Push the mids for a solo or cut mids for rhythm playing. Smooth out the bite or get a honky-wah type mid range.

Some find themselves wanting two Golds just because you can get so many different tones with the sweepable mid control!

More To Gain!

The expanded gain range makes the Gold MKII even more versatile!

The lower gain range has been extended: giving more settings akin to a preamp or clean boost.

Plus, the Gain control now tops out with almost 2X the original amount of gain.

The Gold can now be used for anything from an always-on low-gain sweetener to fully overdriven, thick rhythm playing chords to soaring, classic leads.

More Power!

The Gold MK2 features Pettyjohn's proprietary dual rail supply offering an industry leading 36V from a standard 9V adaptor.

High headroom and high voltage imparts an openness and 3D quality that sounds incredible and just feels great while playing.

Secret Preamp Mode.

By popular request, Pettyjohn added a "Preamp Mode" setting.

Access this by moving the internal clipping headroom toggle to the middle position, thus bypassing the clipping section.

This mode makes for an amazing clean boost with powerful tone shaping!

Quiet Bypass Switching.

The Gold MKII is equipped with Pettyjohn's new relay based true-bypass circuit with soft touch switch.

This unique design accomplishes a totally quiet switch via a sonically transparent gold contact relay.

It auto-bypasses when the power is disconnected: never leaving you in the dark!
