***THIS UNIT IS GOING TO BE RE-RELEASED UNDER A NEW NAME AS A BARBARIAN FUZZ RAIDERS PEDAL IN 2021 ***
CRYSTAL BLADE is Gremlin's ultra limited edition Solo Boost pedal. "JETFIRE 1985" colorway.
CRYSTAL BLADE is a modern hybrid circuit of the super rare and expensive Systech Harmonic Energizer with a 'Screamer type gain structure and fully modded to Gremlin specs. Designed to cut thru a band mix at the frequency notch and bandwidth of your choice. At lowest FREQ setting it also acts as a huge bottom-end boost for heavy rhythm assault.
It has higher gain potential than a typical Harmonic Energizer, plus added Tone and Clipping toggles for sonic versatility. It can run at 9VDC up to 18VDC if you have a high quality regulated power supply.
Also it has an Expression jack to be able to change the FREQUENCY setting remotely and get anywhere from full range thunder, to cocked wah, all the way up to piercing treble content. When the Expression jack is in use, the maximum range available is set by the FREQ knob on the pedal itself so you can keep it in your preferred "sweepability."
We may be making or modifying a handful of custom 100k Expression pedals sometime in the future for ideal EXP sweep range with this pedal, so keep an eye out.
