Get tube-style overdrive for your tone.
The Organ Grinder was the first Lounsberry Pedal designed for keyboards. Developed with the aid of Roger Powell of Utopia and Meat Loaf fame, it provides a fat, tube-like overdrive for clonewheel organs that can cover the gamut of organ sounds from Greg Rollie, to Jon Lord, Uriah Heep, and even Canterbury sounds.
It is a gain staged preamp with Germanium diodes. The onset of overdrive is gradual and can be easily controlled with the swell pedal. It adds compression and 2nd order harmonics. With it's drive and transparency, it works extremely well even with complex chord shapes.
Like all Lounsberry Pedals it sounds and plays more like an amp than a pedal, bringing to mind the tube power amp section of an overdriven Leslie cabinet. As it easily handles the low notes, the Organ Grinder also sounds awesome with bass guitar. Itt is the ultimate shredding device for the keyboardist who wants to rock.
Discrete preamps provide gain in several stages, so that a lot of what happens to provide the right amounts of drive and compression in a preamp is determined by how many discrete stages are employed, and their levels, determining how the stages interact.
Nothing could be simpler. Advance the “Drive” control to add fatness, grit and overdrive (depending on level). Use the “Level” control to balance the level against the bypassed signal. True bypass is available via the stomp switch. Use 1/4” T/S cables only. The use of a TRS cable at the input defeats the power switch. Unplug the input cable when not in use to preserve battery life.
The Organ Grinder operates on a standard 9v battery, or external pedal supply. Power is switched automatically when the DC jack is used.
