Based on the classic consoles of the 1960s.

The Broadcast is a transformer-coupled, discrete Class-A germanium preamp inspired by the classic RCA broadcast consoles of the 1960s.

The Broadcast can be used to produce anything from a sparkling clean boost to a heavier, distorted sound with a fuzzy, fried texture.

When pushed, it covers a wide range of overdriven and distorted tones whilst remaining dynamic: responding to pick attack and nuances in your playing.

Gain switch.

The Broadcast Pedal also features a gain switch offering Low and High modes.

In Low mode, the pedal has tons of headroom and stays nearly clean across its range (whilst retaining coloration from its germanium circuit and transformer).

In High mode, the Broadcat heads into overdrive, distortion and fuzz territory, but with a slightly tighter low end.

Broadcast Controls:

Level : Controls the overall volume of the pedal.

Gain Switch : Selects low, medium or high gain mode.

Gain Trim : Controls the gain level of the Broadcast. At higher settings the high-end of the signal is gently rolled off.

Low Cut : Attenuates the low-end of the Broadcast (since this control lies at the front end of the Broadcast’s circuitry, it is interactive with the gain controls).
