Emerald Green Distortion Machine
Vox-ish in nature, this is sorta like the Honey Bee of the Fuzz world. And…this is the original HIGH GAIN version of the EGDM!
To find the sound for your amp…I start with all knobs full left…turn up the Volume…turn up the Drive…readjust Volume…adjust the Voice control listening to the bass in particular. Then roll up the Treble to taste.
Run it from 8V to 18V.
Neal Casal ~ “I’ve got the Emerald Green on my new board and it’s
absolutely destroying. What an amazing pedal.”
Brett Kingman ~ “I’ve just finished a sell-out 18 date tour around the
country. I had 6 dirt boxes, most well known, on my board. The EGDM proved to be the most valuable and often used by far, due to its broad Vox-like
dynamic and ability to clean up with the guitar’s volume knob – a technique I use all night during the 3 hour set. I would say the EGDM saw 80% of all the dirt work on my pedalboard. As such, it has rendered itself indispensable. Nice work, fellas.”
British (Vox/Early Marshall tones). This is both a Voxish emulator for a variety of other amps and also a booster driver for Vox amps. The Distortion and Voice controls are interactive and together will follow the progression of turning up a Vox-type amp through full low cleans up through edgy, driven and full out screamin’ sounds…plenty of gain for the whole range of jobs. And while it can be a flamethrower, it is also dynamically driven by the Volume knob level or even just pick pressure. Once you adjust, it becomes part of your expressive pathway.
