Boost it Far and Beyond
HERCULES got his name due to it's unlimited strength.
We're talking about a Hiigh Gain Booster capable of leading your tube amp to Olympus.
With its circuit based on the old 60's consoles pre's HERCULES gives you 11 steps of delicious class A Boost. Its high impedance input takes almost no load from the pickups allowing the greater magnetic field around the guitar/bass strings.
It's deem good like amount of Boost, makes it ideal for those who use already overdriven amps, because it allows the pedal not to just tickle de amps gain (as most boosters do) but to really boost it up. Because usually when the amp is already in overdrive the boost only makes it compresses more and,sometimes, even loose volume (due to compression).
For those of us who have clean amps with lots of Headroom (such as a Twin Reverb or a Marshall Superbass) the HERCULES will only be used in two ways:
1. fully up to drive the amp to Olympus (but you could never switch it off, because the sound level will be so different…)
2. At Max you will go 'till the 3rd step.
HERCULES is great when used with a tube amp to get that great extra drive out of it. if the amp's already getting Dirty, HERCULES will do the extra push. It works incredible on a VOX AC30, or a Marshall Class 5, a Fender Blues Junior, or a Fender Hot Rod, just to name a few we've tested it in.
It's super transparent so it doesn't mess with your tone. The only thing HERCULES does is to enhance it by exiting your guitar's and amps harmonics, making your tone bigger and richer without adding any coloration.
Its discrete steps allows for instant recall on presets. You can easily know where to set it when you change from a Les Paul to a Tele.
As with CUSTOM ANALOG'S products, its construction a component selection follows the military standards for electric and electronic equipment, and are 100% hardwired, one by one. Following this concept the screws are on top (as the electric panels of airplanes and summariness) so you can get easy access to the battery compartment, without the need to remove it form your pedalboard. It comes equipped with a white super bright led for you to see when it's on at all times.
