Golden Guillotine Germanium PREORDER
**PLEASE NOTE: this listing is for a preorder sale. Units will ship within 3 to 4 weeks of your order being placed. Thank you.
The Golden Guillotine is a MASSIVE dual op-amp based distortion slammed with a pre-distortion boost, which brings out a wide range of gain and texture, and and added layer of intensity to your signal. It's high gain and hazy, but remains articulate, and has a surprising amount of tonal range that makes it equally suitable for bass as well as guitar. Features a three-way clipping toggle, top-mounted Lumberg jacks, click free Iridescent relay switching, and accepts a standard Boss-style 2.1mm 9v power supply (center negative). Please note that, as all units are hand-painted, weathered, and stamped, there may be some variation between individual pedals not captured in the pictures available here.
This special edition Golden Guillotine will be the first run with the new standardized artwork, as well as a couple of special changes under the hood. The op amp in this version will be the NE5532 which lends a slight amount of additional clarity to the notes at all settings and slightly less resonant bass. Additionally, the clipping options will be asymmetrical germanium (right), symmetrical germanium + schottky (left) and op amp clipping only (center).
