Description

Spice up your bass by adding some dirt without losing your FAT low-end. From a slight tasty grind, up-to massive fat growl. 'Acheron' responds in a wonderful way to the dynamics of your picking. A BOOST foot-switch with controllable amount of boost (through the boost-knob) allows you to boost-up your volume and dirt in real time.
A CLEAN-blend function allows you to dial in as much of your dry signal as you want.
  • CLEAN: allows you to dial-in dry signal.
  • DRIVE: sets the amount of "dirt".
  • TONE: controls the active low-pass filter of the circuit and sets the amount of high frequencies in your output.
  • BOOST: sets the amount of boost that you get when you step on the "BOOST" footswitch.
  • BOOST foot-switch: when engaged it boosts your drive and volume (controlled by BOOST knob)
  • SYMMETRY toggle switch: allows you to select between two separate overdrive modes giving you different sound result (the effect of this function and how drastic it is depends on your instrument)
