Egnater Goldsmith Overdrive Pedal

Overdrive and Boost In One!

Description

The Egnater Goldsmith is a 100% analogue overdrive and boost pedal in one. While a lot of pedals can be defined as either American or British the Goldsmith sits between those two lines offering a huge range of versatility depending on your needs.

The Overdrive

The overdrive side of this pedal is incredibly powerful in terms of the range of tones available. Using the volume, gain, tone and voicing controls you can dial in everything from a low to mid gain classic Brit crunch to a much more modern scooped high gain tone.

One of the big keys to getting this incredible range of tones is a mixture of the wide sweeping tone control and voicing settings. How the voicing control works is like a mid sweep with a 2 way switch that changes the frequency band. This is a big thing that defines your tone so having this much control out of an overdrive pedal is a big plus.

The Boost

Based off of some of the worlds most popular clean to low gain boosters this section of the pedal is just as well thought out as the core overdrive. With drive, level and color controls that can produce anything from a completely clean volume boost to a soft gain drive you have ultimate control over just how you want your rig to sound.

The boost on this pedal is actually completely separate from the overdrive internally so you can use it independently if you wish. This is also means that you can choose in which order do you want the pedals to run using a small switch on the front. You can even select to wire them up differently into parts of your signal chain.

The Smaller Things

Great tone is essential for a pedal but sometimes it is the small things that make a pedal great and there are plenty of these touches on this pedal. From the tough metal housing with the massive Egnater logo the front to the high quality footswitches this pedal is made to take punishment on stage. Plus with the very cool low battery LED indicator you can tell when you need to replace the battery...you don't have to go on stage doubting the battery life as it will tell you as soon as you plug the pedal in.

Here's what Egnater say about the Goldsmith Overdrive.

The Goldsmith is a 100% pure analog, two-in-one Overdrive and Boost pedal. The Overdrive section boasts an extremely responsive tone control along with Gain and Volume knobs to deliver a vast array of saturated tones. Voicing allows you to accurately sculpt the critical midrange frequencies. Egnater's signature Tight switch provides control of the essential low frequencies. The Boost section is versatile and intuitive. Set the pedal for an ultra clean boost or dial in the perfect amount of grit. Drive tapers the amount of gain in your boost while Color shapes the overall tone. The Tight switch controls the overall low frequency response. The Path switch selects the order of Overdrive and Boost. Patch jacks on the rear panel allow you to separate the overdrive and boost into two individual pedals.
