Death by Audio Absolute Destruction Yellow on Hunter Green

Brand New

Description & Specs

This pedal was part of a special offering for those that attended Reverb’s 2023 Chicago Boutique Effect Pedal Showcase, hosted at Chicago Music Exchange. Remaining inventory is now available.

This might be our craziest pedal. Showing little-to-no respect for what instruments normally sound like, or even what people want them to sound like, we pushed this thing until it sounded fully unhinged. Want a thick, gnarly fuzz sound? How about a crushing distortion tone? Sure, you can do that, and it'll sound great. But you can also push the OVERLOAD slider into blooming, octave nastiness; push it further and starve the circuit until your signal eats itself. Crank it to the maximum and your sound will duck completely into the void before it returns to life with a relentless vengeance.

The Absolute Destruction harnesses a power amplifier IC to generate its insane sound. Its Gain and Overload sliders interact to create a wide range of unique sounds in various positions. You choose, to your liking, how much to absolutely destroy your sound. The further the Overload control is set to the left, the faster the effect slips into absolute destruction. Blow it out even harder and faster by slamming Gain and Overload opposite one another. Lower one or the other for smoother attack and release. Screaming octaves, thick fuzz, and the sound of your guitar reaching back from the depths of destruction are at your fingertips. Think of it as a psychotic compressor, or maybe more accurately the sound your amp would make if you set fire to it.

 

Controls

Master Volume: Controls the output volume of the effect.

Overload: Sets the ceiling at which the pedal overloads. When turned all the way up, the pedal will not overload. As the control slides to the left, it pulverizes the sound more rapidly.

Gain: Sliding this control to the right increases gain and distortion.

Horizontal sliders have been recessed to protect them from bending or any accidental movement while playing.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
