THE ELECTRIC LIGHTNING is a creation designed to meet the exacting needs of Chris Buck who utilizes a wide palette of sounds from crystal clear and punchy cleans through to nicely saturated overdrive. THE ELECTRIC LIGHTNING has two sides: a complex valve overdrive with 3 band Eq and a high headroom super clean boost on the right. The pedal is designed so that the boost runs into the valve overdrive side. This arrangement yields three distinct tonal variations ranging from clean boost all the way through to full and fat saturation. The pedal is designed to clean up impeccably from your volume control and as such it is ideal for dynamic players who like to constantly adjust their playing style.

VOLUME: Use this control to increase the volume output of the drive side of pedal.

GAIN: This control is used to increase the level of drive available on the drive side of the pedal, everything from lightly crispy through to heavier sounds is available here.

BASS: This control gives allows you massive amounts of control over the bass response of the drive. Clockwise yields bass rich sounds. A little can go a long way, the EQ is powerful enough to cope with most backlines of varying EQ character.

MIDS: This control gives allows you massive amounts of control over the mids response of the drive. Clockwise yields mids focused sounds. A little can go a long way, the EQ is powerful enough to cope with most backlines of varying EQ character.

TREBLE: This control gives allows you massive amounts of control over the treble response of the drive. Clockwise yields treble focused sounds. A little can go a long way, the EQ is powerful enough to cope with most backlines of varying EQ character.

BOOST: This control gives you control to boost or attenuate your signal, use it on its own as part of the boost side of the pedal or when stacked into the drive it can really make the pedal sing with complex harmonics and layered overdrive.

LOWS: This control gives you control to add low end to the boost side of the pedal and fatten up your signal for crystal clear but fat clean sounds.

LEFT FOOTSWITCH: This turns the drive side on/off.

RIGHT FOOTSWITCH: This turns the boost side on/off.

POWER: THE ELECTRIC LIGHTNING is designed to work at voltages of 12V DC. On power up, the inrush current can be as high as 700mA settling to 280-300mA during use. This should be provided from the supplied centre negative power supply. However, if your boards power supply can provide the requisite voltage and current requirements you can. Do not attempt to use this pedal with other voltages or polarities, the pedal can at best just not start up (limp mode) or at worst you can damage the sensitive internal electrics. Please be aware it takes a short period of time at first power up for the valve to heat to optimum level and begin working.

COMPONENTS: To ensure consistency, reliability, low noise and tonal supremacy the ELECTRIC LIGHTNING is made with extremely high quality components. 1% metalfilm resistors, WIMA and Panasonic capacitors where possible and robust through hole plated PCB’S. In short, all of this means you won’t have to worry about your pedal and it should give you many years of inspiring tonal bliss.
