Handmade overdrive with high-end transistors provides a purer signal.
The Electric Sheep pedal features a 100% original all-discrete circuit for a natural high-end overdrive suitable for all kind of guitars. The 70/80 control morphs the overdrive tone from natural tube amp (called '70s sound) to classic overdrive pedal tone ('80s). It is not a gain control, but a real shaper of the boost/overdrive tone based on the way the discrete transistors work in its circuitry. All the electronics will react differently depending on the setting of this knob.
With this control, you can control the input impedance from hi-gain humbuckers equipped guitar (HB) to classic single-coils (SC) and everything that comes in between. A good overdrive pedal must cover all the range from clean boost to high overdrive. With the special circuitry in the Electric Sheep, the designer aimed to bring a new purity to this vast array of sounds, which implied working with the-less-components-the-better approach, preserving the guitar and amp tones while you use this pedal.
100% discrete circuitry: No op-amps
Handmade using large circuit board avoiding parasite capacitor effects
High-end transistors with carefully controlled data from Philips and Fairchild
Selected and hand-measured passive components
Completely new circuit architecture created from scratch

Comments about Jacques Electric Sheep Guitar Overdrive Pedal:
I'm pretty jaded about OD pedals. I've owned dozens of them, so it takes a lot to impress me.
I love this one!! It easily does everything from clean boost, to mild OD, to cutting high-gain distortion.
This is one pedal that REALLY makes it feel as if you are pushing a medium-sized amp very hard. Many pedals claim it, this one DOES it.
A pleasant surprise was that the tone-shaping controls (70-80 and Single Coil-Humbucker) do not simply offer A-B choices, as a lot of pedals do. On the Electric Sheep, both of these controls offer a continuous sweep from one extreme to the other.
It's definitely a keeper!!!
