ACHERON Bass Overdrive w/ Dry Blend & Boost [V2.0]

Acheron Bass overdrive with dry blend and boost
NEW! This is the 2nd Version of our classic ACHERON Bass Overdrive.
Make your amps "growl", 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 wonderfully to the dynamics of your picking.

The frequency response of the circuit (regarding WET signal only) borrows elements from the SansAmp BD combined with an Ampeg B15 Baxandall EQ.

A DRY-blend function allows you to dial in as much of your dry signal as you want. The DRY signal is not affected by the Bass/Treble controls, it stays intact and it's 100% your original dry bass signal.

A BOOST foot-switch with controllable amount of boost allows you to instantly boost-up your volume and dirt in real time. [Note: The Boost function is available only when the effect is active.]

BASS & TREBLE give you very flexible control over the frequency response with the flavor of Ampeg's B15 two-band Baxandall EQ controls.
  • DRIVE: set the amount of gain.
  • DRY: dial-in your dry signal
  • WET: dial-in the overdriven signal
  • BASS/TREBLE:  Baxandall EQ styled after Ampeg's B15 equalizer. These controls affect only the 'WET' signal.
  • BOOST knob: sets the amount of boost that you get when you step on the "BOOST" footswitch. The Boost can be used only when the effect is ON (left footswitch engaged)
  • BOOST foot-switch: when engaged it boosts your drive and volume.

'ACHERON' (ancient Greek: Ἀχέρων) is a river located in the Epirus region of northwestern Greece and it flows into the Ionian Sea. In ancient Greek mythology, Acheron was known as the "River of Woe", and was one of the five rivers of the Greek Underworld. In the Homeric poems the Acheron was described as a river of Hades, into which 'Cocytus' and 'Phlegethon' both flowed.
According to tradition the Necromanteion (ancient Greek: Νεκρομαντεῖον) was located near the banks of Acheron.
The Nekromanteion was an ancient Greek temple of necromancy devoted to Hades and Persephone. This site was believed by devotees to be the door to Hades, the realm of the dead.
The site is at the meeting point of the Acheron, Pyriphlegethon and Cocytus rivers, believed to flow through and water the Kingdom of Hades. The meaning of the names of the rivers has been interpreted to be "joyless", "flaming" and "lament."
