Overview

Build a cathedral of rich overdrive with this versatile pedal.

The Architect from Matthews Effects v2 is a mythically inspired overdrive with improvements!

The gain structure has remained the same, and acts as two separate knobs in one controlling the mix of a clean boost signal and a separate overdriven signal, as well as turning up and down the gain of said overdriven signal.

The EQ section now has a full 3-band baxandall tone stack that lets you cut or boost the Bass, Mids and Treble, giving you way more control over the tone and shape of your drive.

Its still running internally at 18v for the best possible headroom and clarity. And this, coupled with the 3 different clipping options that give you 3 different flavors of gain, make for a wide range of tones available to you.

Features

  • Output: your overall volume
  • Bass: Cut or Boost the bass
  • Mid: Cut or Boost the mid's
  • Treble: Cut or Boost the treble
  • Gain: The amount of overdrive mixed in
  • Clipping: Choose between Germanium, Silicon and Diode Lift (no clipping)
