The Maestro Invader is an all-analogue, modern high gain distortion pedal with an aggressive sonic character that is rich in harmonic content. Featuring a classic 3-knob control setup, the Invader offers intuitive control over gain, tone, and output level. The level control has plenty of headroom which means you can push it well beyond unity gain. By pushing the volume, the Invader can be used as a boost to hit the front end of your amp harder, resulting in more grit and a tighter sound.
The Invader also features an intuitive noise gate via a toggle switch on the top panel. An internally mounted trim pot allows for adjustments to the level of the noise gate’s threshold. By engaging the noise gate, background noise and amp hiss will be kept to a minimum when using higher gain settings.
- Controls: Gain, Tone, Level; internal Noise Gate Threshold trim pot
- Internal Trim Pot: An internal trim pot on the circuit board allows the user to adjust the level of the Noise Gate’s Threshold. Using a small screwdriver, turn this control up for a higher Threshold level, and down for a lower Threshold level.
