Tsakalis AudioWorks Six Booster-Overdrive-Distortion pedal
For many years we have wanted to create a truly mind blowing overdrive – distortion pedal that would be small and practical yet would offer huge powerful tones, natural feel and flexibility.
And of course to do that we needed reference. So we decided to combine all the good stuff found in the legendary pedals Timmy®, Blues Breaker® and KOT®, and try to come up with that extra something that would take things even further.
After a long period of modifying and prototyping and countless hours of testing and swapping ICs, capacitors and diodes, we finally had something really good in our hands. But it wasn’t enough…
Not willing to stop experimenting until we had a pedal that would really speak to us in the studio and on stage, we decided to completely nerd out and try some unconventional methods. It was during this process that we discovered something really innovative.
We are very proud to introduce the first cap-less® pedal!
Looking for that magic ingredient, we decided to think out of the box and removed all the capacitors from the audio path (coupling caps), which resulted in a more natural feel than ever before and respect to the original tone of the guitar without any added compression or color that would be coming from the coupling caps.
By applying what we call cap-less technology®, you can really hear the character of your instrument and consequently your own hands!
We call our new pedal Six, which comes from its six different modes, select-able by the 6 position rotary switch:
1. Booster (BS)
2. Overdrive 1 (OD1)
3. Overdrive 2 (OD2)
4. Distortion 1 (DS1)
5. Distortion 2 (DS2)
6. Overdrive 1 into Distortion 2 (OD1 + DS2)https://tsakalisaudioworks....
