Two infamous Super Hard On pedals in one enclosure!

Creator Zach Vex has a warning for those considering the Vexter Series Super Duper 2-in-1 Boost: "I WARNED YOU TO BE CAREFUL. When using this pedal, start off slow, and monitor your amp for potential damage." This is no joke—with two Super Hard On circuits in one enclosure, this pedal is dangerously loud!

Channel 1
Channel 1 is a conventional Super Hard On, with a gain control on the far right and a yellow LED to let you know when it's engaged. If you're familiar with the SHO, you know that it's a very sparkly sounding, high input-impedance preamp with incredible headroom, wide-ranging gain (unity to 60X!), and a maximum volume that will knock out your fillings. Channel one has no Master Volume control, but it's cascaded into Channel 2, which does.

Channel 2 and 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, allowing you to turn down the output volume even if the gain is cranked. When Channel 2 or both channels are on, the Master Volume is active.

What's it sound like?
You might wonder just how insane the Super Duper 2-in-1 sounds with both channels active and cranked up. Zach says, "I can't get my Les Paul to stop feeding back at any audible volume level on my Marshall . . . I'm happy about that." Of course, wide open isn't the only setting on the Super Duper 2-in-1. It 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: Channel 1 engaged.
Level 3: Channel 1 off, Channel 2 engaged.
Level 4: Both channels engaged

There's no tone shaping in the Super Duper 2-in-1. Its two perfectly linear, high-gain, high input impedance preamps can be cascaded with a total gain that ranges from unity to 3600. That's right, the maximum gain with both channels wide open is a whopping 3600, which is so completely distorted, hissy, feedbacky, and insane that you'll never have a steady relationship again. Or a lease. Or a pet. Fortunately, with the Master Volume you can hear what that sounds like at a reasonable volume.

Features

  • 2 Super Hard On circuits in one
  • Channel 1 cascades into Channel 2 for incredibly dangerous amounts of gain

Like living on the edge? Forget this pedal, it's for those who like going over it at full speed. Buy with caution.

    Amazing For Any Music Style

    By Nathan Saunders

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about ZVex Vexter Series VSD Super Duper 2-in-1 Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This pedal is the most used on my board. It pushes my amp anywhere from a small crunch to a high gain howl. The only problem is the bass when you hit the lower E string. I easily fixed this by always using my bridge pickup. Works Great!
    This pedal is very simple to use and easy to get a good sound out of. I have no problems at all with it.
    Nice little box. It could be dropped off a building and still work like new.
    Great price once you think about it. You could spend over a lot getting two pedals to sound as good as this one.
