Freya Overdrive/Booster

210 inc. VAT

Freya is a dual pedal designed around guitaris Joss Allen’s style and technique. This amazing player known for his Heavy Metal guitar magic helped us create a versatile dual pedal that can become a new pedalboard staple to all guitarists from Blues to Heavy Metal players. Freya is a combo of a low to mid-gain overdrive and a transparent high headroom booster.

Freya’s overdrive section was designed to provide a focused mid-push with three distinctive clipping voices, a vast amount of headroom with great clarity of bottom and top-end of the signal. It’s smooth on the clean channel and tightening things up on the dirty channel. The clipping switch allows  you to choose from smooth, bluesy breakup, open and focused boost to push the front-end of your dirty channel and mid-rich lead tone. The pedal also includes a full range, transparent booster section providing up to 12dB of clean boost.

Available on back-order (will be shipped within 14 days)

 

Description


“To me there is beauty in darkness. Power in the sound of carnage and unrelenting excitement in the sound of heavy metal.

And who more beautiful, powerful and exciting than the goddess of beauty and war herself Freya.. She takes me to the upper realms of brutality that I need, but will also show compassion and beauty when needed.

Oh and I forgot to mention.. there is a boost just incase you want more excitement.

This is the overdrive/boost I have been looking for! I hope she helps you on your journey.”

Joss Allen

 

Meet Freya, a Nordic Muse that came into life as a result of our cooperation with Joss Allen – an amazing guitarist known for his Heavy Metal guitar magic. Freya – a goddess of beauty and war – is both captivating and powerful and she brings pleasures and thrills to your guitar tone whether you are a Blues or a Heavy Metal player.

Freya is designed around Joss’s amazing style and technique. This versatile dual pedal is a combo of a low to mid-gain overdrive and a transparent high headroom booster. Both sections can operate independently and their order is easily switchable for even more tonal options.

Freya internally converts the standard 9V DC power to +/-9V DC to gain more headroom to operate. The pedal uses high quality JFET operational amplifiers for higher input impedance, lower noise, great signal integrity and clarity.  Top-mounted jacks and compact footprint make it suitable for any pedalboard.

Freya’s overdrive section was designed to provide a focused mid-push with three distinctive clipping voices, a vast amount of headroom with great clarity of bottom and top-end of the signal. It’s smooth on the clean channel and tightening things up on the dirty channel. The clipping switch allows  you to choose from smooth, bluesy breakup, open and focused boost to push the front-end of your dirty channel and mid-rich lead tone.

The pedal also includes a full range, transparent booster section providing up to 12dB of clean boost.  You can use the boost alone, boost the volume of already overdriven signal to push the tube amp even harder or provide an additional source of gain to the overdrive part of Freya for that fuzzy bottom end by switching the order of the sections.

Freya is an all-analog circuit, designed on carefully selected gain and clipping stages. It is built with high grade components for best signal quality.
