The Beast Mountain is a heavy-drive/distortion pedal with hard rock and metal music in mind. It has a very tight low end for clear, articulate palm-muting, a midrange-forward voicing to center the guitar in a mix or push a bass forward, extremely low noise-floor, and has optimal clarity and note definition.
The circuit features both symmetrical and asymmetrical soft clipping stages for complex harmonics, a very gentle hard-wired noise gate (which will not clamp-down on sustain), extra power-supply and input RF filtering for ultra-quiet operation, the typical 3-knob lineup that every musician is familiar with, and both input and output buffering so it will play nicely with all of your other gear.
The controls from left to right are: Input gain / treble / output volume.
- 9 or 18V operation
- 8mA current draw (at 9V)
