For players looking for that unmistakable modded black and gold tone, Friedman has become the go-to brand. Known for their range of classy boutique-style amps that deliver only the finest of tones, their foray into the pedal world has garnered the same critical acclaim.
The Friedman Golden Pearl joins the company's young yet established stompbox lineup. Far less lairy than their other pedals like the BE-OD, the Golden Pearl will appeal strongly to guitar players that are after a more traditional overdrive sound.
Smooth Low-Gain Tones
Friedman may be most synonymous with high-gain tones, especially with artists like Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains) and Bell Kelliher (Mastodon) on their roster. However, the Golden Pearl is a far tamer beast, delivering super-sweet and transparent low-gain tones.
Able to push a clean amp into break-up, this pedal is capable of recreating nostalgic classic rock tones, making it perfect for styles such as blues. However, it isn't a one-trick pony. That's because the Golden Pearl is also perfect for using into an already overdriven amp, designed to take it into glorious saturation!
While the volume and drive knobs are self-explanatory, the Golden Pearl has some further controls up its sleeve. The single tone control affects the top-end response, allowing you to achieve more cut in a mix when you turn it up high.
The 3-position 'hi cut' switch also influences the top-end, which allows you to tailor the sound of the pedal to suit the tonal qualities of your amplifier.
The Golden Pearl's 'voice' switch is also interesting; a tri-mode clipping switch that alters the overall character of the overdrive. Giving you LED, diode or no clipping voice options, you can discover your favourite drive flavour.
