The BBE Sound Blacksmith BD-69P Distortion Pedal features an LED-based gain circuit feeding a 3-band passive EQ which was derived from a '69 Marshall Plexi stack. The EQ allows you to dial in a tone to match the characteristics of a particular amplifier, since some amps are darker- or brighter-sounding than others. You can also create a wide range of distorted tones to suit your playing style.
Blacksmith features 1% metal-film resistors, fat signal traces on a military-spec circuit board, true hardwire bypass to eliminate any pickup loading when disengaged, and a 1 MΩ input resistance. Its LED-based gain circuit delivers smooth, high-output distortion that can be used with a wide variety of amplifiers.
