The FourBanger mk2 is Now Available
The FourBanger mk2 is Now Available -
This is an exciting 4-in-one boost that gives you a choice of
four distinct flavours of boost to suit any occasion or style.
Pushbutton switches allow you to choose any combination of the
four, which allows for many "stacked" sounds that result in a
diverse range of overdrive, distortion, and fuzz tones. This is
where it truly stands apart from other boosts… it's like a dozen
pedals in one!
The boosts are as follows:
R - Rangemaster - a modern recreation of the classic Rangemaster
treble boost. I have painstakingly replicated the signature
vowel-peak slightly dirty boost using modern components for lower
noise and higher consistency and reliability.
M - MOSFET - my version of a popular boost known for its super
hard sound. Not a simple copy, I've redesigned the circuit to
feature my noise free "non-crackling" gain control and use a
lower-noise transistor. The tone is clear and clean at low gain,
and loud and fat when turned up.
O - Opamp - an original design boost circuit using an opamp.
Designed to sound neutral and clean at low gain, but becomes a hot
overdrive when turned up. Can be used as a high-quality buffer at
J - JFET - this is a hot boost based on the SRPP topology and
utilizing Toshiba 2SK117 audio JFETs. The sound is an intense boost
with a slightly lean low-end. When overdriven by the other boosts,
it has a very tube-like character that makes it ideal in the last
The finish is hand-painted acrylic over baked enamel primer with
a tough gloss over-coat. Each one is an individual and no two are
exactly alike. It is as interesting visually as it is

The Illuminated Overdrive is the result of my work
reverse-engineering the popular Klon Centaur overdrive. But this
isn't a simple copy, I use higher-quality components wherever I can
and try to do whatever possible to wrench the most performance from
the circuit. The most obvious difference is the addition of the
3-way toggle switch labelled "Norm, Hot, Asym". This selects
between three different clipping modes, each with its own
Norm is the normal mode - this gives the same signature dark
overdrive sound as the original Centaur.
Asym gives an asymmetrical clipping mode which has a more active
harmonic character and a tone many people consider "tube-like".
Hot is very loud and crunchy - almost the exact polar opposite
of the soft, dark normal mode.
The finish is a true work of art as beautiful and unique as the
overdrive itself. Each is hand-painted a deep metallic gold using
iridescent acrylic pigments with a breathtaking silver vein pattern
over top. A tough gloss over-coat protects the beauty.
All Illuminated Overdrives now include a True Bypass/Buffered
toggle that allows you to select which bypass style works best with
your rig at no additional charge!
