VERSATILE, CUSTOMIZABLE, THE SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF YOUR PEDALBOARD !
As we know, you change your overdrive like a shirt so why do not put everything in one pedal with a small size !?
Cerberus exists for that, very transparent overdrive, you keep all the quality of your clear sound while finding the desired saturated harmonics.
3 steps for 3 clipping, jazz, blues or rock style.
Inside, a potentiometer will allow you to completely transform your overdrive from a very transparent sound to a warm distortion!
External settings :
Gain, passes from clean to saturation.
Tone, initially focused on a medium-high range.
Volume, up to + 12dB.
1st selector’s position : Soft clipping LED.
2nd selector’s position : Hard clipping with 4 or 5 small threshold voltage silicon diodes.
3rd step: Hard clipping with 2 high threshold voltage silicon diodes.
Internal settings :
Roll Off is the famous setting that changes all the sound of your drive. This is a frequency from which the circuit saturates. Below this frequency, the overdrive only adds loudness. Above it adds dBs and saturates! So, when the frequency is low you find more harmonics at the output!
Tone switch, is a simple switch to adjust the frequency range of your Tone potentiometer.
Asymmetric, choose whether you want a fifth diode or not on the second position of the clipping selector. So, you will get an asymmetrical clipping.
