Electronic Audio Experiments Limelight V2 Overdrive/Boost Pedal

Brand New
  • $249.00

Description & Specs

Limelight is an all-new dual channel overdrive developed in collaboration with LA-based punk band Touche Amore to commemorate the release of their new LP, Lament.

The distinctive bright, clear tones of guitarists Nick Steinhardt and Clayton Stevens form the timbral foundation of TA’s impassioned brand of post-hardcore, letting their riffs morph effortlessly between serene clean passages and cacophonous blast beats.

In preparation for the recording of Lament, the band reached out to us to develop a new pedal. We completely reimagined Nick and Clayton’s go-to bluesbreaker and screamer-inspired overdrives to create a unique new circuit, with equal parts aggression and chime. An independent front-end boost rounds out the package, perfect for adding power to clean tones or pushing the overdrive into heavy distortion. While the primary goal was to help the band sound like their best selves, Limelight has a tone for everyone.

  • Boost – adjusts the Boost channel from 0dB to +21dB of clean gain when turned clockwise.
  • Drive – Simultaneous control of two gain stages, with a natural midrange boost as you turn it clockwise. Achieves approximately 50dB at the maximum setting.
  • Tone – Adjustable low pass filter, clockwise for more treble and counterclockwise for less.
  • Volume – Output level control, turn clockwise for more volume.   
  • Focus – Variable low cut in the drive section, adjusts the amount of chime and midrange presence.
  • Left footswitch – Engages drive circuit
  • Right footswitch – Engages boost circuit

  • Independent boost and drive circuits with relay-based true bypass switching which defaults to bypass in the event of power loss.
  • Input impedance @ 1Khz: 500kΩ (boost/drive)
  • Output impedance @ 1Khz: 1kΩ (boost), <5kΩ (drive)
  • Power: 9VDC, 2.1mm center negative barrel. The current draw is 80mA with both channels engaged.

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!
