The Pettyjohn GOLD is inspired by classic “Golden amps from Britain” ended up as so much more then just an amp-in-a-box. The GOLD is a low noise, edge-of-breakup to distortion with amp-like dynamics and feel featuring a versatile three band studio grade EQ enough tone shaping power to work well in any players rig. It represents a culmination of our obsession with studio grade electronics and over three years of tweaking with drive circuits and we are proud to offer what we feel is the new golden standard of our Foundry line!
Wide gain range inspired by vintage Marshall tones from low-gain overdrive through full on distortion
Amp-like feel and dynamics for a tonal experience that transcends what’s normal in a pedal
Sweep-able low cut control from 20Hz to 750Hz for full control of the low end
Mid bell with 8dB boost or cut at any frequency between 400Hz and 2kHz for total mid range control
High cut control sweeps down from 20kHz to 1kHz giving total control over the high end response of the circuit.
High Cut Filter comes equipped with a genuine Auri-Cap audiophile capacitor for transparent highend quality or select a Orange Drop for a smooth, vintage response via the internal mini-toggle
Internal mini-toggle for adjusting the headroom of the gain amp.
