I love working with the great people at Lightning Boy Audio. We’ve been doing write ups and give aways with them for some time now. I recently received the Thunder Knob to check out, and it’s an absolutely great sounding high voltage/tube overdrive. Simple.. and just sounds great! You can read about it here – “Lightning Boy Audio – Thunder Knob“. They were kind enough to offer this up as a give away to a lucky Effects Bay reader!
Here are the specs:
Designed for the people as a result of their comments, suggestions, and recommendations, The Thunder Knob picks up a few steps beyond where the Lightning Boy II pedal left off.
The Thunder Knob is a new design, which is a huge evolutionary step from its predecessor, the Lightning Boy II. The most significant advancement is the Thunder Knob is 9v DC powered. Everyone wanted us to make a 9v powered pedal, while still being high voltage inside. It took a bit for us to figure it out, but here it is! The Thunder Knob boosts 9v DC to 190v DC (+/- 10%) internally thanks to our proprietary low noise DC to DC voltage booster. Any standard 9v pedal adapter will work if it can output at least 350mA of current.
A really cool new feature is the Thunder switch. This switch toggles between “Normal” which is a mellow tone and a mild degree of distortion (think early stage of break up from a tube amp) and “Thunder,” which offers increased distortion, treble, and volume. Plus, when “Thunder” is engaged the Lightning Boy logo lights up!
- 12AX7 vacuum tube pedal. All-tube audio path – no transistors or IC’s.
- NOS paper-in-oil capacitors in audio path for silky smooth tone.
- Hand wired point-to-point audio path – just like a vintage tube amp!
- One big knob for volume.
- Thunder switch toggles between two different modes of gain and tone.
- True bypass with quiet switching.
- Designed and assembled in the USA.
The Lightning Boy Audio – Thunder Knob retails for $189, so this is a great opportunity to win this pedal.
