The Dawner Prince Red Rox is an overdrive afficiniados dream. You simply can't go wrong with a distortion pedal that goes from clean amp-like tones to American high gain Rock n' Roll.
You can use the pedal as a clean boost or to fatten up your tone by pushing the preamp knob.
Why not use the volume control on your guitar as a gain boost with the pedal set to high gain? Why not set the pedal to your current guitar signal level, and use the pedal to colour the sound of your guitar?
Contour to cut through
The contour knob will allow you to dial in very specific lead or rhythm sounds depending on your role in the band. You can use the contour to scoop the mids for fatter riffs or you can push the mids to cut through the band mix. This means you won't have to use an EQ pedal after your distortion to dial in a soaring lead tone.
Here's what Dawner Prince Electronics say
Red Rox is a «hot rod» in distortion pedals - souped up for more power!
It can deliver anything from pure clean tones all the way to a grease-melting distortion.
MASTER controls the output volume level. You can adjust Red Rox to the same volume as your bypass signal (unity gain) or volume it up for a whole lot fatter tone - there is plenty volume on tap!
CONTOUR controls the frequency emphasis overall. In the middle position is balanced presentation of the overall frequencies; clockwise it becomes midrange-pronounced and counterclockwise it becomes midrange scooped.
TONE controls the frequency emphasis on the highs coming out of distortion section. Top end frequencies can be easily adjusted to your own taste.
PREAMP controls the amount of distortion in the signal. On minimum setting Red Rox acts as an ultra clean booster. Cranking it up will take your guitar sound all the way to a full, fat and thick distortion - there is a great deal of flexibility.
Red Rox distortion is fully professionally designed and handmade with audiophile quality components and true bypass switching system incorporated - a pedal built to last.
