The Architect is a mythically inspired overdrive with improvements!
The V3 is the evolution of the Architect overdrive. Built on on the foundations of those that have come before us, Matthews Effects wanted to continue to push the limits.
You can create layered, clean boosts to dynamically push your amp with powerful EQ dialing, or crank the gain and shake the very earth! There is always more to discover and build on!
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 though now has a full 3 band baxandall tone stack that lets you cut or boost the Bass, Mid's 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 head room 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.
