The Barbershop from Fairfield Circuitry. Just one look at this pedal shows you what matters to this manafacturer. Simple, uncomplicated design thats clean and efficient.
The Sag control reduces the voltage to the amplifiers as you turn it counter clockwise, giving additional control over the character and feel of the saturation. The lower the Sag, the browner the sound. Full voltage is applied when the control is set fully clockwise. It is at this setting that the pedal has the potential to be its cleanest and loudest.
Sets the interstage gain of the amplifiers. More gain means more distortion. The wide operating range allows you to go from an almost clean gain to a tasty rich overdrive.
NOTES ON POWERING
The Barbershop Millenium Overdrive was designed to operate using your typical centre negative, regulated 9-9.6 VDC power supply. The pedal is protected against reversed polarity. The pedal will function with voltages up to 18 VDC but the character of pedal will drastically change. The higher the voltage, the less drive you will have. Always check your power supply for proper voltage and polarity before connecting. There is no battery connection inside the pedal.
