European Musical Imports is pleased to announce very limited availability of the Hudson Electronics Limited Edition Broadcast, model BC-24V-LTD. Only 60 units will be released worldwide and only 25 of those will be available to USA dealers.
The main difference between the LTD Edition and standard Broadcast is that it will run at 24v (via an internal converter using a standard 9v DC power supply). The extra voltage gives the pedal considerably more headroom and a tighter low end that is fantastic with bass, keyboards and guitar.
The pedal also features a 3 position gain switch offering MID-LOW-HIGH modes. In LOW mode the pedal has the most headroom and stays fairly clean across the range of the Gain Trim control, while still imparting coloration from the germanium circuit and transformer. The MID mode is voiced to sound and behave in a similar fashion as the regular version of the Broadcast in low gain mode - still pretty clean but adding more grit and saturation to the mix.
HIGH mode (like on the standard Broadcast) heads into overdrive, distortion and fuzz but with a slightly tighter low end, which is ideal for Bass. An internal trim pot allows the player to adjust the maximum gain level available when in HIGH mode.
The BC-24V-LTD will be finished in British Racing Green and will feature a graphic unique to this run. It will also come loaded with a Valvo brand NOS black glass transistor.
The BC-24V-LTD will be available at authorized Hudson Electronics dealers in the USA, early February 2016. Street Price: $285
