OVERVIEW

Gallop into awesome tone with this gig-ready overdrive.

One of the most sought-after dual-overdrive pedals produced in the mid '90s is now in one unique pedal design-with a pocket size. NUX Horseman pays homage to the legendary Centaur pedal. There are three dials for primary settings and two modes: Gold and Silver, and it offers massive headway usually requiring an 18v input.

Gold Mode mimics its classic predecessor; the transparent Gold Centaur overdrive pedal and the Silver Mode is a powered-up version with an extended gain range (Silver Centaur).

NUX Unique Design
The sound is based on the Centaur's voltage converter circuit. But the Horseman's characteristic design is crafted with a built-in OP-AMP voltage-converter driving the 18V to OP-AMP. Higher voltage-supply orders-up more harmonics, and convincingly reproduces the sound of this unique pedal.

Clean Boost
Another “classic” way to use the NUX Horseman. Very useful when used in combination with the amplifiers drive channel (or any other drive pedal). And, depending on the Gain - Output adjustment, it lets the Horseman be used as a clean boost. Dial-up a low-gain with a high output setting, and it adds mostly volume and minimal color to your sound.

Natural Distortion
Additionally, the controls can be set to distort the sound signal in the pedal, where two Schottky diodes can perform a waveform clipping. (The germanium diodes are discontinued, NUX especially select the Schottky diodes to replicate the waveform clipping ) The "gain" knob is a double potentiometer (a "dual-ganged gain pot"), which controls bass and middle frequencies. Treble and volume are each controlled with separate knobs.

True/Buffer Bypass
NUX Horseman has an optional bypass mode. You can use the pedal in True Bypass mode to keep your signal untouched when the pedal is OFF in the chain. It's recommended to select buffer bypass mode if you have more than 4 pedals connected together; switch to Buffer Bypass mode and there will be no signal loss in your pedal chain!

Push and hold the footswitch and power-up the pedal; the LED indicator will show which bypass mode is activated; RED - True Bypass / GREEN - Buffer Bypass.
