Leppælæ Electronics just released their latest pedal into the world, SÄRÖ.
Inspired by the guitar tones of the classic rock world, Leppælæ Electronics started studying the possibilities of a treble booster pedal – since it was used so widely in that realm of music to achieve gnarly, gritty, overdriven guitar sounds.
But SÄRÖ is not your ordinary treble booster – even though its frequency response sits in that area. After spending some time designing the circuit, Leppælæ Electronics found that they could squeeze two classic overdrive sounds – inspired by two iconic classic rock guitar amplifiers – into one pedal.
The two overdrive sounds can be switched between using the “Thin/Thick” switch.
Thin: With the switch in the Thin position, the SÄRÖ produces an overdrive reminiscent of a Marshall Plexi.
Thick: With the switch in the Thick position, the SÄRÖ’s tone is more akin to the sounds from amps like the Marshall JCM800 and Marshall JCM900.
Gain Knob: The Gain knob controls the gain.
Soft: Softens the sound of the pedal by rounding out its response. Making it sound more germanium-like.
Hard: Adds “More of everything” adding to the overall gnarliness of the pedal.
