The Special Cranker is designed to give your signal some extra grit and boost without drastically altering your tone.
Think of it as sticking an extra preamp tube in your amplifier for more saturation!
Single notes will blossom and bloom with rich harmonics and singing sustain with responsive, tube-like sag.
Power chords will sound thicker and crunchier, a little more ragged around the edges.
Complex chords will remain distinct and complex, as the Special Cranker is designed to preserve your tone’s integrity.
The More control goes from nearly clean to a medium gain overdrive when at maximum.
This control adjusts the bias of the transistor, so you may hear a little noise as you turn the control.
Don’t freak out; it’s totally fine. The gain characteristics are dependent on which diodes are chosen.
When the Germanium diodes are selected, the Special Cranker delivers a softer, more rounded response with tamed highs and lower output.
The Silicon diodes add a brighter, more modern edge and higher output.
Both are exceptionally responsive to playing dynamics and have excellent clarity.
The Tone control cuts the highs when counterclockwise and adds a slight high frequency boost when turned clockwise.
The Level control adjusts the output from nothing to nearly double at maximum.
