Employing a patent-pending multi-stage amplifying circuit called MAMP (Method of Analog Math Processing), that’s designed to create controlled overdrive and distortion, the Classic One ($250 retail/street price N/A) packs enough distortion range to go from mild overdrive to full-tilt rage. Designed and assembled in the U.S. (using a Bulgarian made enclosure and PC board), the Classic One delivers lots of output—even with the Drive control turned down—and its Dyna Dist knob is a potent function that adds fatness, intensifies the harmonic distortion, and also provides a volume boost. Though dynamically responsive and able to clean up well when you lower your guitar volume, the Classic One shows its most open and articulate side with single-coils. With its ability to go from mild overdrive to searing sustain, this pedal can handle virtually any style you throw at it.
KUDOS A flexible pedal with a wide distortion range.
CONCERNS Slightly boxy sounding with humbuckers.
