The Pigtronix Philosopher’s Tone Germanium Gold Micro brings back the original Pigtronix custom shop compressor/sustainer/distortion effect—in micro form.This superlative version of the award-winning and top-selling Pigtronix Philosopher’s Tone compressor takes the original pedal’s optical sustain engine and lets you mix in a layer of germanium-enhanced distortion.The unique diode arrangement found in the Germanium Gold version delivers a smooth top end and rich midrange response, tailored to match the characteristics of the optical sustainer driving it. If you felt that the original circuits in the Philosopher’s Tone were brilliant… wait ‘til you hear how the Germanium distortion adds to the overall character of this compressor/sustainer pedal! The clean side of the Philosopher’s Tone remains the same; dial in your Blend and Volume to get the signal you desire. Use the Sustain knob to dial in the amount of compression you need. Higher settings on this control will provide a noiseless clean sustain previously unheard of in compression pedals, while retaining the original integrity of your tone.What makes the Germanium Gold version unique is the GRIT control. More than a simple gain knob, the Grit knob found on the Philosopher’s Tone Germanium Gold Micro acts as a blend for the germanium-enhanced distortion found in this unit. You can dial in more or less grit, depending on your tastes. Your clean and overdriven tones from the Philosopher’s Tone can be blended perfectly with just the right amount of grit for your playing. This stompbox features true-bypass switching and runs on standard 9VDC power with an internal, voltage-doubling circuit providing the superior clarity and overall output of 18VDC power rails.
