Wonderful Audio Technology Apex Distortion LM308 (Serial #001)
The Apex Distortion is a versatile distortion pedal which was originally inspired by a particular LM308 rodent pedal. The goal was to create something new, while still paying homage to the original. This is not a clone but a reimagination of a classic.
How is it different?
"First things first, I love boosting the RAT with another drive, bit so I added a JFET front end gain stage. JFETs are great because they react extremely well to the dynamics of your playing… dare I say it?... are very amp-like in their character. Next is the LM308 primary gain stage. I completely changed it’s voicing. I wanted a nice low punch with crisp highs and it had to preform well in both low gain and high gain situations. Next is the clipping section. I wanted to a blend of smoothness and crunch so I combined a mixture of diodes and an LED. Up next, the tone stage, which similar to the RAT, functions as a classic low pass filter however it is reversed so to the left is darker, right is brighter. Finally in true classic form a JFET buffer which also adds some color as it saturates."
Used in very good condition, no box, ships fast and safe!
- very good
