Tsakalis Six Boost/Overdrive/Distortion Pedal

Product Information

For many years, Tsakalis has wanted to create a truly mind blowing overdrive/distortion pedal that would be small and practical yet would offer huge powerful tones, natural feel and flexibility. So they decided to combine all the good stuff found in the legendary pedals Timmy, Blues Breaker and KOT, and try to come up with that extra something that would take things even further. Looking for that magic ingredient, Tsakalis removed all the capacitors from the audio path (coupling capacitors), which resulted in a more natural feel than ever before and respect to the original tone of the guitar without any added compression or color that would be coming from the coupling capacitors. By applying what Tsakalis calls cap-less technology, you can really hear the character of your instrument and consequently your own hands! The Six BOD is powered by a 9V supply (center-), and features an advanced internal power supply with voltage doubler. There is a voltage switch that allows you to select between 9V or 18V, even though youll always be using an external 9V supply. Just like with tube amps, increasing the voltage means more headroom. At 18V, the pedal behaves more like an amplifier with tons of headroom and a slight difference in the Overdrive and Distortion modes, which tend to have more clarity. At 9V it sounds dirtier even at lower volume and in Booster mode it starts to break up more easily.
