Designed to reproduce the massive, syrupy-thick guitar tones of Black Sabbath legend Tony Iommi!

3 simple controls initiate the mere mortal to this netherworld of tone:

1. Volume”Adds just enough output to boost your level without overdriving your amp (don't worry, the Overkill control will take care of that for you!), allowing you to toggle between clean and crunch with ease.

2. Tone - Specially voiced High Cut/High Boost tone circuit adds just the right amount of edge to cut through the mix without losing low end. A center-detent lets you find the secret Sabbath sound with ease!

3. Overkill - Named for an obscure German Sci-Fi character, this control adds all the crunch and punch you could possibly desire and then some! At minimum you get a tight, slightly edgy overdrive tone that puts a TS808 to shame. At 12 o'clock Overkill gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to jump from rhythm to lead playing without adjusting your settings. At maximum setting the Overkill control goes wild, unleashing singing, slightly compressed saturation that (when combined with your guitar's neck pickup) will sustain into glorious, howling feedback that will raise the dead, or at least get the audience on their feet!

The PD-1 is hand built in Germany and features the highest quality components available such as a 14-gauge stainless steel chassis which helps eliminate noise, a Blue LED status indicator, and mechanical true bypass switching (not that you will ever shut it off!). The Paranoid is covered by a one-year parts and labor warranty. When you're ready to sell your soul for rock 'n' roll, the Musician Sound Design PD-1 Paranoid is your one-way ticket to an eternity of tone!
