The Pedal and a Gun distortion pedal, from Retro Mechanical Labs, embodies a nostalgia for a bygone era when times were simpler. By imparting a taste of the past into the present, Pedal and a Gun is here to make distortion great again.
The pedal’s sound is a synthesis between that of an overdriven tube with high-gain boost control, and that of a clean buffered signal. The ability to blend the clean signal into the mix means users can easily dial in the perfect tone. There’s also a gain boost for even more unwarranted aggression, and a second output routes a clean buffered out to wherever the user decides to implement it.
Pedal and a Gun Features
Blues Tones for every musician
Output Level Control
Pedal Tone Control – also controls secondary gain knob (Tuning Knob to the left limits gain on secondary control, turning to the right adds it in)
Gun Primary Gain Amount Control
Recoil Secondary Gain Amount Control – Greatly increases gain and volume output and feedback will occur when both ‘Recoil’ and ‘Pedal’ knobs are turned up to their maximum settings
Mix Amount Control – between gain signal and clean boosted signal – Boosted volume is fixed and unaffected by output control
Primary Output for Distortion Signal
Output B – Clean buffered signal out useful for linking secondary effects to a clean signal, a separate amp or board inputs (inactive when pedal is turned off)
