The Skreddy Pedals™ Dynamic Mids Enhancer sweetens, expands, optimizes, and focuses your guitar tone; it restores lost dynamics and detail while bringing your desired midrange frequencies forward in the mix.
The noise floor stays flat (virtually zeroself-noise) but signal peaks are multiplied, giving you more cut, more chime, more punch, and more clarity--perfect for solo boosts or whenever you want to spotlight your playing.
Amazing clean boost, but also works wonders stacked with dirt. Best used AFTER your overdrive or fuzz pedals.
This high input impedance, ultra-clean circuit minimizes signal adulteration and boasts amazing transparency.
Now you can custom tailor your own signature "enhanced" sound
Sculpt your guitar signal to bring out the best clean sound and with dirt leave the mush and the fizz behind. Whenever you get tired of it, you can tweak the controls for a whole new sound. Unlike a typical tone stack or graphic eq, these frequency-gain controls do not create losses or fight with one another or impart phase shifts to the signal. Nothing but clear, open, clean tone.
You can adjust your gain along three midrange contours to dial in your desired sonic impact and character. But there are no harsh, unpleasant, or distorted tones in this pedal--you won't be able to make it sound bad. And unlike running an overdrive after your fuzz to bring out the mids, this pedal will not add extra noise or compression; instead, it will make your dynamics pop and bring up detail, dimension, and articulation.
Sounds fantastic at 9v, but try it with 12v or 18v for even more dynamic punch, volume, and clarity.
Output level starts at or a tiny bit above unity gain (depending on the frequency-gain settings) with a very gradual and smooth sweep of volume as you turn up. There is a good amount of boost available at max, but this pedal is intended as a sweetener and not to pump out tons of massive, amp-crushing volume.
I experimented with changing the output configuration to make it not raise your volume at minimum "boost," but it's much more open sounding this way; plus you're not using this pedal to stay at the same exact volume anyway. It does not sound anywhere NEAR as good if I make it work like a regular volume control where it is silent at minimum. Sorry! The imperfect unity gain at minimum is the price I have to pay for the best tone possible. The tone is what makes this thing special, and this is absolutely the best-sounding clean guitar preamp or booster I have ever heard.
The output impedance is also slightly padded to provide a guitar-like signal to whatever follows, rather than an unnaturally-bright-sounding, low-impedance output signal.
Regular 9v-18v negative ground, no special power requirements. 9v battery is not included. If you use a battery, then remember to un-plug the input cable from the pedal’s input jack when not in use to prevent draining (or you can also just plug in a power-supply, which disconnects the battery).
You may supply external power through an AC adapter. All Skreddy Pedals accept the industry-standard 9v DC plug (5.5mm barrel x 2.1mm center coax), negative tip. Please use a quality, regulated, filtered power supply.
