There are a few concepts with the Classic. Firstly, at its core, it shares some features with another one of our pedals, the Crunch Box Distortion. However, the resulting tone is quite different. Where the Crunch Box is a very Marshall-on-eleven sounding pedal, the Classic Distortion has been tuned differently in order to make its response quite different. It’s a lot ‘creamier’ and more vintage sounding, hence the name.

GAIN – A huge range from clean to massive amounts of saturation
