Transparent GAIN, dynamic smooth OVERDRIVE, thick rich DISTORTION
The Holy Fire takes a different approach than the typical overdrive distortion pedal. This ultra-wide bandwidth pedal responds like a tube without changing your tone and has an extremely low noise floor.
Typical distortion pedals use a ton of gain and clipping. This creates a lot of unwanted noise which needs to be heavily filtered and that thins out the tone. The Holy Fire introduces the world to analog wave-shaping technology to re-shape the waveform and achieve tube-like FX without adding noise or heavy filters. The pristine analog process preserves all of your original tone.
This makes the Holy Fire overdrive distortion a very musical pedal that responds to your touch. Play with a softer attack and velocity for a cleaner sound, or dig in to get as much grit as you want. You control the effect with your playing dynamics and the volume of your instrument. Great for guitar or bass! Like a tube preamp in a pedal, but without the bulky, fragile and expensive tubes and transformers.
