149.99

This is a transparent overdrive.  Literally.  Designed to give you more of what you love about your tone, the X-Ray can give you that little push over the cliff when needed.

A transparent overdrive?  What does that even mean?

We don't know.  Anything that amplifies your signal is going to change it in some way, there's nothing you can do about that.  But you know, sometimes it's handy to be able to get a little brighter or darker, or to add some grit.  The X-Ray sounds pretty great, and stacks really nicely with your other drive pedals.

But the enclosure is plastic?  Will it break?

Yes, it is.  It's made of high-strength polycarbonate and is pretty tough, but just to make sure we added some clever features to keep it safe.  We've incorporated a soft-touch footswitch that means you don't have to stomp the pedal to get it to turn on.  We've also added a reinforcing pillar that connects to the back of the pedal, so that any force from stomping on the footswitch is spread to the back of the box.  It's pretty tough.

Controls:

Volume — Controls the output volume of the boost. Crank it to overdrive your tube amp.

Contour — Set low for transparent and glassy boost. Or set it higher for fat and juicy boost. Your call.

Tone — Adjusts the high frequency content of the boosted signal. The "neutral" setting is around 2 o'clock.

Bypass Switching:

The X-Ray features true bypass switching using a latching relay and a soft-touch bypass footswitch.  The  X-Ray will power on in either bypass mode or effect mode (useful if you are using the pedal with a remote bypass switching system.)  Hold the footswitch at boot to toggle between bypass and effect startup modes.  The pedal remembers your settings when the power is removed.  The X-Ray is fully analog.

Power Supply:

The X-Ray requires a 9V DC power supply with a 2.1mm pin, center negative.  The X-Ray is not designed to be powered on supplies higher than 9V and does not use a battery.  The X-Ray should work fine on a multi-pedal "daisy chain" connector, but if you encounter excessive noise or hum try a separate power supply.  The X-Ray requires approx. 12mA.
