The Super-Nova-Drive is a fun little circuit we have been working on for a while. The concept is simple: an overdrive with a wide gain range coupled with a three band active EQ. Within Such a concept lies many potential pitfalls though. First we had to create an overdrive circuit that was worthy of all the extra control. Something musical both at low and high gain, with just enough harmonic content yet still warm, and enough low end push but not muddy. Several versions, and a few prototypes later we found something that sounded really special, and was still simple enough to fit inside a small footprint.
Can be powered by a 9 volt battery or 9 to 18VDC adaptor with a negative center 2.1mm barrel style plug. Current draw is less than 10mA.
