The legendary Doug Aldrich (Dio, Whitesnake, Dead Daisies) gets his own signature Ryder distortion pedal from Foxgear! Now this is far more than just the beloved Rats overdrive with a badass makeover. It keeps all the same golden-pin relays, true bypass and low-noise circuitry goodness, but puts out an even hotter tone.
The Ryder's Germanium diodes create a harder clipping section to reach the familiar screaming characteristics of Doug's sound. This is all controlled using a simple, easy-to-dial three knob setup. Awesome rock 'n' roll tone guaranteed out the box.
A clever internal layout reduces the footprint of Foxgear pedals. You'll be able to fit four of these stompboxes onto a pedalboard when there's only space for three standard-sized pedals. Top mounted jacks make it easy to hook up into your signal chain. An acrylic faceplate lights up when the pedal is turned on so you'll see it on the darkest of stages.
Foxgear were launched in 2017 by renowned Italian brands Gurus and Baroni-Lab. These pedals showcase the best construction respected engineers could have only achieved by working together. Designer Ugo Baroni and manager Chicco Bellini are constantly involved with researching, developing and working with professional musicians to ensure quality standards.
The Italian company are endorsed by some huge names. The likes of Steve Lukather from Toto, Adrian Belew formerly of King Crimson and Motorhead's Phil Campbell joined this new project to deliver exciting effects pedals.
