KURO KAGE: aka "BLACK SHADOW"... The Spitfire circuit is on the High Band and the Mongoose on the Low Band. These two classic circuits are our probably most popular circuits for Rock orientated music. They have stood the test of time and many famous bands still use them. They are not at all nasal sounding cleaning up superbly with the use of the guitar volume control. Now you can experience the unlimited combination of blending both tone and distortion to the nth degree with the Kuro Kage.
The Synergy Series The Synergy Series brings parallel path processing and recording studio-mixing quality to our range of distortion pedals. Each pedal has two separate distortion sections that are driven by internal splitter circuitry and then mixed back together. The Low and High Band circuit paths have been carefully chosen from our extensive range of tried and critically acclaimed distortion, fuzz and overdrive circuits. It is best visualised as two separate channels with individual control of the important parameters and then mixed together to form one sound.
The Low and High Band circuit path channels have individual Drive and EQ controls that been optimised for the type of circuit being used. The resulting range of sounds available is truly immense as varying amounts and types of Processing and EQ can be applied to each channel or band and then mixed together. This is a technique we used in the studio with Jimi to get the required tone. Using various pedals in series or equalisation will not accomplish this as processing is then applied sequentially and to the whole frequency range. The advantages of this technique become immediately apparent upon playing the units. The amount of flexibility in adjusting the tone is truly immense and these boxes will appeal to those players that seek out and appreciate the subtleties of manipulating their tone to the highest level.
It should not also be forgotten that there is a financial saving as well as in fact you are getting two pedals for one plus a splitter and mixer for about 120% of the price of one of our single units. You also have a space saving on your pedal board with a very flexible unit that will produce more tonal variation that you can imagine.
