Dawner Prince Diktator Preamp Overdrive & Distortion Pedal


The Diktator is a bold, transparent statement in an overdrive pedal. With an attacking mid-range presence, it sounds like your favourite black and gold British amp.

The diktator can do simple clean preamp boost as well as rich tube-like saturation. It's a responsive drive pedal that sits in a similar vein to a tube amp, without the reliability issues. It will work best going into a clean pedal-pallet style amp as it can create all of the preamp colour that you may need.

2 Channel Distortion

You can set the 2 channels up to be mild overdrive & lead boost or the more traditional distortion/boost setup.

You can also use each channel separately, so if you don't need a heavy overdrive, but want to push the amp a bit harder, the fuse channel will do the trick. If you want a straightforward drive sound, then the detonator has your name on it.

You can stack the 2 channels for ultimate satisfaction.

Heres what Dawner Prince say

Like every diktator, this one is rough too, but it can be soft – it has sweetness, but it also has balls.

It is a unique two channel combination of clean, transparent preamp / booster and rich overdrive / distortion that can work independently.

Detonator channel

is an extremely versatile drive that takes your tone from light crunch, through rich, fat overdrive, all the way to tight distortion. Two toggle switches are responsible for different tonal and gain shapes, and with two-band active tone control, any desired frequency is easily cut or boosted. Another original feature is a Dynamic-O-Meter™ (Diktator’s eyes), which is a visual indicator of the drive’s dynamic response.

Fuse channel

used alone is an ultra transparent preamp which refines the original tone, making your guitar sound bigger and easily pushes amplifier into the natural overdrive. Used in conjunction with detonator channel, it really hits your amp hard and is an excellent booster for lead parts, solos, etc…

Diktator also utilizes improved power supply filtering circuitry, RF rejection filter, smart PCB routing, no-wire design, audiophile quality components and true bypass switching system.

All these features assure the Diktator's domination over your guitar tone and representative place on the pedalboard. Enjoy!
