GAIN OF TONES (2016) Initial Run/Pre Production

An idea that was spawned from the Anarchy Audio Facebook Group, the Gain of Tones was originally intended as a 2in1 circuit with the Gold Class Overdrive.

It however evolved into a dual mode overdrive, based on the KoT circuit, with improvements made to its “distortion” setting. “Overdrive” and “Clean boost” modes remain identical, with the exception of the presence control being external. (turning this control fully CW results in low mids being pushed forward and top end rounded off, same setting as found in two V4 KoTs)

The 2 drive modes are identical and switchable between the “standard” and “high gain” potentiometer offerings of the KoT.

Initial pre-production runs featured custom graphics and colours, and various options footswitch allocation (some with Bi-LED indicators for mode I/II) and was  one of the first of many custom pedal runs to utilise our new laser engraver. This later evolved into the production model released in early 2017 and available today at selected stores (OBTAIN)
