The world’s first pedal to feature replaceable distortion circuits!

Designed in collaboration with Mateus Asato, the Asabi packs a versatile array of tones.

To keep things interesting on your pedalboard, the Asabi was designed with replaceable distortion modules.

These let you swap the distortion circuit in the Asabi without having to buy a completely new drive!

Because we all like to try out new pedals, these affordable modules allow you to buy the pedal once and update it with new modules all the time!

The High Gain module that ships with the Asabi recreates the detail and harmonic complexity of the legendary JCM800 amplifier.

This module delivers true 'Marshall in a Box' distortion at any volume! Perfect for anything ranging from classic rock to crushing heavy metal.

To push the distortion even further into clipping, the overdrive side of the Asabi features an incredibly touch sensitive overdrive circuit.

Designed for maximum transparency, the overdrive on the Asabi is completely flat in its frequency response with no mid hump or unnatural artifacts.

Each circuit allows for 4 different clipping options which drastically alter the tone and feel of the distortion and overdrive.

Both drive circuits share an active 3-band Baxandall-style EQ (but feature independent controls for gain, tone and volume).

Packed with the soulful overdriven tones and liquid high-gain tones Mateus Asato is known for, Asabi is sure to please!

Innovative Gain cycle feature.

The Gain Cycle feature takes the Gain knob setting and divides that level of gain into 4 equal parts.

Say, for instance, you have your Gain knob set at the maximum setting (100% gain).

Every time you press both footswitches simultaneously, the gain of the pedal will jump up 25% (until you get to 100%).

MIDI features.

If you’re into MIDI, the Asabi’s got you covered with full MIDI control over its multiple clipping modes and gain cycling feature!

The overdrive and distortion circuits can also be turned on / off with MIDI: making integration into any rig super easy.
