"In a realm so vast we sit among the Vacant Planets" - Chuck Schuldiner
This pedal is designed to be the "master control center" of your pedalboard setup. Essentially, this is a heavily modified combo unit of the $Y$TEM COLLAPSE (RAT-based distortion) and CEREMONIAL (Sunn Model T Preamp). The SUNN Preamp side is boosted internally to run at 18VDC for more output!
Distortion side has a separate CLEAN SIGNAL VOLUME knob added, so it is versatile enough for bass guitar also. It is also useful for balancing your clean and dirty signals to send to modulation pedals in the newly added FX LOOP.
Yes...an FX LOOP has been added between the distortion and preamp so you can patch in other effects as you normally would on a pedal board setup. Not only that, but the FX LOOP has it's own footswitch to turn it on/off while playing. This is a tremendous advantage for hitting a single footswitch to turn on your entire Lead/Solo fx chain for example. Or to instantly drift out into nightmarish deep-space soundscapes with those ambient/modulation/synthesizer style pedalboards!
Expected release date will be May-June 2023. Extremely limited edition as usual, only 13 units per year.
