Sitek Guitar Electronics has launched the Freya Overdrive/Boost, the brand’s first dual-pedal, designed for guitarist Joss Allen.
The drive section of the pedal offers a low- to mid-gain overdrive, said to emphasise a “focused mid-push”. This is paired with three distinct clipping voices that go from “smooth, bluesy breakup” to “open and focused” for pushing the front-end of a dirty channel, and “mid-rich lead tone”. Other controls specific to the overdrive section include drive and tone knobs.
The boost on the other hand, is full-ranged and voiced to be transparent. It offers up to 12dB of clean boost on tap, and can be reordered to either appear before or after the drive section.
Allen broke the news about his new signature pedal over YouTube, writing: “I am very excited to announce my partnership with Sitek pedals to create an awesome overdrive and boost pedal. We worked on this pedal for months to get it just right!”
In his video, the guitarist supplied a demo of the pedal’s sounds, discussed previous prototype iterations and explained how he uses the Freya – take a look below.
The Freya Overdrive/Boost is available at €210 through sitek.rocks
