Zvex Super Hard-On
This is the perfect preamp pedal. The "Crackle Okay" volume knob is a negative-feedback control styled after classic 60's recording console inputs. (They crackled when adjusted too.)
Most vintage guitars suffer from steadily deteriorating magnets int heir pickups, since permanent magnets aren't really forever. The SuperHard-On's input impedance is so high (>5 Meg) that it refuses any current flow from your pickup... maintaining the most magnetic field around each string, so you can hear exactly what your pickup sounded like the day it came off the winder.
The output level can exceed 8 volts peak, and when it finally distorts, the wave is shaped like triode overload, not fuzz.
It's so transparent no one will be able to tell you're using a pedal. Perfect for making the most of a classic amp and guitar, because it simply makes your guitar bigger and pushes the amp harder, causing natural overload. This sound can be the solution to the 'disappearing guitar' effect you get sometimes on stage when you stomp on your distortion and sound weaker. When cranked, it sounds much louder than a fuzz or distortion under stage conditions.
Like all Z. Vex designs, current flow is low in this circuit (lessthan 2mA), enhancing battery life. The circuit board is hand-cut and soldered with the critical component, a BS-170 mosfet transistor,placed in a socket for easy user replacement should it be necessary.Your dealer can provide you with a free replacement transistor upon request.
The box is hand-drilled using no petro lubricants, and hand painted so that every box is unique. Knobs are Harry Davies, made with the same molds they've used since the fifties. Each effect is hand dated and signed by Zachary Vex.
Special note on Zvex products: Some items will not look exactly like the picture... Each Zvex product is hand crafted and custom painted. Each one is unique.
