Golden Guillotine Germanium
**PLEASE NOTE: this listing is for a preorder sale. Orders will be fulfilled within 1 month of 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 features 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).
