Mission Engineering Delta III Limited Edition Germanium/Silicon Hybrid Distortion/Fuzz


Description & Specs

The Mission Delta III is a flexible distortion pedal capable of a huge range of tones from Screamer style overdrive to extreme fuzz. Delta III features the best of the analog and digital worlds, with a three transistor all analog audio path, and micro-

controller managed digital switching. A Pro-Audio output buffer ensures compatibility with other pedals, making Delta III usable with almost any instrument in any rig.

  • Mission Tri-Stage distortion ranging from overdrive to fuzz
  • All analog audio path
  • Isolated digital bypass. Fast and quiet switching with soft touch button
  • Hi and Lo range EQ controls
  • Compatible with wide range of instruments
  • Can be placed anywhere in signal chain
  • All aluminum construction, weighs just 12oz
  • Works with any power input from 9v - 18v dc

Delta III features a three-transistor analog distortion circuit where the third transistor forms an output buffer for compatibility with other pedals. The pedal can be used with a wide variety of instruments and signal chains. Unlike many distortion boxes, the Delta III is not overly sensitive to where it is placed on a pedal board. The voltage bias of the transistors has been adjusted for optimal response as the signal decays, allowing smooth distortion sounds even from very high or low signal inputs.

Two separate EQ controls create a huge tone shaping capability. The Lo Range EQ control allows you to dial in some fatness to the low end without getting too flubby. The Hi Range control will let you roll off some of the high frequencies to prevent harshness.

Proper adjustment of these two controls allows a wide choice of sounds from full frequency response to a mid-range boost.

The Delta III is very touch sensitive, cleaning up with reduced volume or pick attack, and more aggressively clipping, as you play harder. It has also been designed to work with the fuzz compatible Mission VM-PRO and V-BOOST, allowing pedal controlled variable distortion.

The microcontroller managed relay bypass system provides soft-touch on/off with very fast and quiet switching operation. Engaging and bypassing the effect happens in a few milliseconds. The soft touch switch is much quieter than a typical latching switch with no clicks or pops turning the effect on and off. Digital switching is also much more reliable ensuring the pedal will consistently switch over many years use.

A flexible power input allows the pedal to be powered by a DC source from 9 volts to 18 volts. Lower voltage will give a fuzzier sound while higher voltages provide a wide range of responses to the guitar's pickup. Delta III also works perfectly with variable voltage power supplies and low battery simulators.

Delta III features a red anodized aluminum chassis and weighs just 12oz. Top mounted jacks allow easy cabling onto a pedal board. Four aluminum knobs control volume, distortion, and EQ. A status LED indicates successful start up, effect engaged, and effect bypass modes.

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.
