HOLY ISLAND Glass Palace


Glass Palace is a glassy low to mid gain drive pedal (hence the name) that is suitably at home providing twinkly midwest-emo chime through to awkward and discordant noise rock.

It was initially designed as a love letter to the middle position of an aluminium necked Jazzmaster of mine, but of course it loves to play with a variety of guitars and tunings so I highly recommend experimenting with it in a few different set ups.

At the circuit’s heart lies one of my favourite preamp circuits of all time, the DOD Bifet Preamp. The original circuit was great for adding some secret sauce to your guitar sound and I have always kept one on my pedalboard in some form or another.

Glass Palace’s circuitry takes a step away from its source material as it’s been cross contaminated with Fuzz DNA. Two switchable flavours of transistor based fuzz circuits lie at its core, with those two respective circuits being both pushed and emphasised by the preamp circuitry.

This means that Glass Palace is capable of a plethora of drive sounds from clangy, cutting and loud to splatty and compressed percolator-esque fuzz.

The primary drive is paired with a boost running at a boosted voltage to provide a decent surge of volume to push your amp into saturation. This is placed after the primary drive and can be used independently or in conjunction with the primary drive circuit to provide a dynamic shift mid performance.

9V 'BOSS style' DC adaptor only. No Batteries.

Great 👍🏼

Doesn’t seem to be mentioned elsewhere but it has an internal dipswitch you can select the clipping diodes. Very impressed with this and Holy Island.
