25 Nov Akai Deluxe Distortion
Flagship of the Akai Analog Custom Shop
The Akai Deluxe Distortion Pedal by Akai Professional is the flagship of the Analog Custom Shop product line. The Deluxe Distortion combines distortion, tone-control and amplifier simulation in heavy-duty polished stainless-steel housing. True-bypass switching, adjustable frequency knobs, amp simulation and tone toggle switches provide precision control.
Deluxe Distortion’s EQ mode toggle-switch provides detailed tone control with a choice of Modern, Normal or Classic. The Modern setting provides a scooped-mid tone recognizable as a cornerstone of the hard rock and heavy metal guitar sound. Normal passes the input frequency directly to the distortion effect while the Classic setting boosts mid-tone for an enhanced, warm tone reminiscent of classic rock.
Dir Rec switch provides emulation of amplifier power and speaker perfect for direct input to a mixer, DAW or other amplification or recording device.
Gain is highly adjustable with the Fat, Boost, Warm tone Tri-Mode toggle-switch enabling soaring leads, lush chords and satisfying rhythm tones. Tone may be further adjusted using the six precision knobs and High Cut toggle-switch.
Deluxe Distortion can be powered by a 9-volt battery or 9v AC adapter (sold separately).
Mint condition. Price: £99 plus FREE Shipping
