The Sphynx - Nick Perri signature pedal
I have joined together with Nick Perri to develop what we believe is the best boost/preamp pedal in existence. After listening to Nick's description of tones, and how he used his Eradicator pedal and a Klon Centaur together, I started modifying an Eradicator. I joined some of the secretive Klon circuit with our own Eradicator pedal to come up with this circuit.
Internally, there is a 12AT7 tube, cascading each gain stage into tubal goodness. The pedal operates on a 9v wall wart (minimum 500mA), but delivers close to 300 volts of DC for the plates of the tube, just like inside of our amplifiers. The tube can be switched to a 12AX7 for even more gain.
Controls are Gain, Tone and Output. Bottom plate is removable to swap tubes.
The all steel enlosure is made just for us, and is one of the most durable foot pedals we have ever seen. Powder coated for longer life. The switch portion is ramped for ease of switching.
Sonically, the gain goes from country cleans, to metal gain. The tone control is a high pass filter, giving similar variations as a tube guitar amplifier does. The output can be made to give a small boost, to a heavy hitting punch.
