Pike Amplification Vulcan Bass Overdrive
Pedal guru, Spencer Doren of 3Leaf Audio, has launched a new company. Strictly aimed at bass players, new offerings from this company will be fresh and innovative. Here's the lowdown:
"The Vulcan is a bass overdrive that packs two discrete drive circuits into one package. The innovative color control provides a variable balance between a mid-forward, B-15-inspired overdrive and a higher-gain modern sound. The signal path is split after the first gain stage and sent to each overdrive circuit where the sound is clipped and sculpted individually and recombined at the output. The result is a versatile overdrive that adapts to any style. A broad range of tones can be accessed by using the tone knob on your bass in conjunction with the controls on the Vulcan.
The Vulcan is housed in a compact enclosure and finished with a brushed anodized aluminum faceplate. It utilizes the proprietary Pike CMOS bypass switching system for reliable silent switching through a clickless stomp switch. It is designed to sound great at 9v DC, but can be powered with 18v for a cleaner sound with extra headroom."
Built in Seattle, WA.
