Tone City are well known for producing one of the vital world’s best value pedals at prices people thought previously unattainable. Input impedance: 1M ・Output impedance: 10K ・Input level: -10db ・Output level: ENGINE A only 11db, ENGINE B only 10db ・TRUE BYPASS switch (Keep an eye on – ENGINE A / B common) ■VOL: ~ Adjust the volume ■GAIN: ~ Adjust the amount of distortion ■TONE: ~ Adjust the tone Dual Channel Overdrive One of the crucial things that actually separates this from other similar pedals is that this is in truth a dual channel overdrive. This means you not only have access to a powerful midrange heavy overdrive with Channel A but a fatter and warmer tone as well with Channel B. So for example you would use the midrange focused channel for when you actually need to cut above the mix for a solo. At the same time as you would most likely use channel B for those more subtle lead moments where you don’t need to be the loudest in the band but still need all of the sustain and response that a decent gain channel gives you. Both of the channels then again still have a classic mid gain overdrive tone to them making them perfect not only for blues leads but rock rhythms as well. Simple Setup Some pedals that have two channels get overcomplicated fast as they try to introduce things like a multi band EQ and a whole bunch of other controls you just don’t need. The King Of Blues keeps it simple then again, if truth be told so simple that you’ll get set up with this pedal on any amplifier within minutes. On both channels you have access to three controls, gain, volume and tone. These are the staples of the overdrive pedal world and are part of what makes this so simple to set up.
