QUEEN of TONE is a dual overdrive pedal stacked with Horseman and Morning Star.
Why? Because great guitarists love 2 overdrives for their tone.
On the left side of the pedal is the Horseman with SILVER mode. The Horseman is based on the legendary Centaur, with a modified circuit to access the secondary function by simply holding the foot switch~ SILVER mode. Carve out your tone with the Output, Treble, and Gain knobs, then try switching between the 2 modes: Gold and Silver, which offers massive headway usually requiring an 18v input. Gold Mode mimics its classic predecessor; the transparent Gold Centaur overdrive pedal and the Silver Mode is a powered-up version with an extended gain range (Silver Centaur).
On the right side of the pedal is the Morning Star with SHINE mode. The Morning Star is based on the legendary Bluesbreaker circuit: a very transparent,
low gain drive. Like our Morning Star, it also features a simple foot switch hold to engage the iconic SHINE mode for a crystal clear treble boosted tone.
By using the versatile routing and toggle switches, You can adjust the order of the overdrivesMS->HM or HM->MS. On the back of the pedal, you can toggle the BF/TB switch for Buffer-Bypass or True-Bypass, and the IFS/NORMAL switch to engage INPUT FET STAGE (IFS) to increase the input signal in order to reach the amp’s breakthrough edge that can drive the tube amplifier hotter.
