Lunastone / True OverDrive Wise Guy / Red / Effect Pedal
True OverDrive - Wise Guy
This guy is definitely connected! The Wise Guy is a new take on the popular 2-in-1 overdrive pedal. Although based on the classic JRC4558D op-amp, this ain't your grandfathers ol' dirt box, the circuit is a brand new design! The Wise Guy was designed to achieve an overdrive with the same sweet touch responsiveness you would expect to find in a good vintage amplifier when played real loud. This pedal delivers unrivalled sustain and cleans up nicely when you back off on your guitars volume knob. Unlike most other overdrives and distortions, “boutique” or budget brands, the Wise Guy achieves its incredible warm tube-like overdrive without the common use of clipping diodes, but purely from cascading gain stages much like in a real tube amp, and is therefore classified as a True Overdrive. The Wise Guy is an excellent sound shaping tool for all genres of music, and the sparkle and tube-like clarity of the +15 dB independent boost will help drive your tube amp into overdrive or to be heard above the mix of the band when soloing in live situations.
The Wice Guy is a 2-in-1 overdrive with an independent boost positioned after the drive side of the pedal. This allows for an increase in volume when soloing either with clean or overdriven sound. At the heart of The Wice Guy is the gain knob which works in conjunction with the OD-switch, which lets you choose between to different gain characters, while you control the amount of gain via the Gain-knob . The Od1 setting offers a softer low gain in the crunchy domain, while the Od2 delivers more sustain. The high frequencies of the overdrive signal can be controlled by the Tone knob, which is moved down a bit and made slightly smaller because, let’s face it, most guitarist usually set it and leave it. True bypass switching makes sure that your tone stays intact when the Wise Guy is turned off, and careful assembly by hand will ensure you many years of faithful service from this pedal.

LunaStone guitar effects are developed by Secret Lab which is a company owned by guitarist and engineer Steen Grøntved. The effects began their development in Copenhagen Denmark in 2011 by two guitar playing friends with more that 20 years of live and recording experience each. The aim was to provide rock solid guitar effects having 'that little extra', making them able to compete with the best guitar effects on the market today. LunaStone effects are for the time being hand-soldered and assembled. All electronic designs are original, made from scratch and designed in house. The first three products in the product line are designed with guitarist Morten Lunau as an inspirational and creative collaborator.
LunaStone guitar effects are handmade to a degree that makes sense to us. For the time being all soldering and assembly is done by hand. The PCB's are designed in house and later manufactured in a specialized PCB factory in order for them to live up to all common industrial quality standards. We utilize true bypass switching and analog circuitry exclusively.
