Within the eye-popping gold case is a superb blend of light overdrive that enhances, without changing, the sound of your favorite amp. The Austin Gold can be used to add up to 30dB more gain.
Unique to the Austin Gold is its "Pre-Bass" control. Other typical overdrive pedals have a fixed value which cannot be altered. But the Austin's Pre-Bass control allows you to cut the pre-distortion low frequency information, eliminating problems with too much "fuzzy" bass. This control also allows you to increase the pre-distortion frequencies when the tone is too weak or thin. With the Pre-Bass control, many overdrive textures can be exploited. It's almost like having an entire arsenal of various overdrive pedals in one, by simply adjusting one control!
And the key is, the Austin Gold does NOT overprocess, but instead will add an entirely new dimension to your amp.
With its simple control layout you are up and running in no time. The Level control adjusts the overall output level of the Austin Gold. The Drive control adjusts the gain level applied to the input signal. An LED indicates when the Drive is active. Then use the Pre-Bass control already mentioned to really get your sound cooking.
Rough, tough and rugged, like all the pedals in the Rocktron line, the Austin Gold is road-ready in an extruded aluminum chassis.
