Union Tube's Snap, Crackle and POP range are based on their first Tone Druid overdrive pedal. The difference is they've introduced a treble booster knob, great for lead playing or more versatility.
The Crackle stompbox has the dynamic range and clarity of the Tone Druid, but pushes the boundaries further. Its voicing is soulful and mature compared to the POP's rigidity or Snap's weightiness. The treble booster is manageable and never feels out of control.
Union Tube & Transistor
Union Tube & Transistor are a small company based in East Vancouver that make high-end, boutique pedals with rich tones. The Crackle maintains the company's creative direction in making top quality, honest-sounding pedals.
Here's what Union Tube & Transistor say about the Crackle:
The Crackle is the third in our treble booster trilogy. Similar to POP and Snap it takes the concept behind the Tone Druid but replaces the MORE section of the circuit with a treble booster. Fans of Rory Gallagher style treble booster may find something more manageable here.
