Double the overdrive, double the fun.
The Super-Duper 2-IN-1 guitar pedal from ZVex is a dangerously loud pedal that combines two Super Hard-On pedals in one small box, with two switches, and LED indicators. Its Master volume control lets you use it as an overdrive/distortion with any output volume.
This channel is a conventional Super Hard-On. Its gain control is on the far right, and its LED is yellow. It's a very sparkly sounding high input-impedance preamp with incredible headroom, wide-ranging gain (unity to 60 X), and a maximum volume that will knock out your fillings. Channel one has no Master Volume control, but it's cascaded into Channel 2.
Channel 2 and The Master Volume:
This channel has the very same circuit as Channel 1, but the bleeder resistor on the output has been replaced with a Master Volume control. This allows the user to turn down the output volume even if the gain is set quite high. The knob on the left is the gain, the middle knob is the Master Volume, and the LED is red. When both channels are on, or if only Channel 2 is on, the Master Volume is active. If you leave the Master wide open, you have two identical Super Hard-On pedals in one box, which are cascaded.
This pedal gives you a total of four volume levels, ranging, at your choice, anywhere from perfectly clean to ragingly overdriven. Level 1, your guitar is true-bypassed with both channels off. Level 2, you turn on Channel 1. Level 3, you turn off Channel 1 and turn on Channel 2. This is easy because you can put your foot on both switches at once and alternate between the two channels if you want. Level 4, you turn on both channels.
There is no tone shaping in this pedal. Its two perfectly linear high-gain high input-impedance preamps can be cascaded, with a total gain that ranges from unity to 3600. The maximum gain with both channels wide open is a whopping 3600, which is completely distorted, hissy, feedbacky, and insane. Luckily, with the Master Volume, you can listen to what it would sound like to lose everything you love at a reasonable volume.
