The pedal largely stays true to the original Super Lead, especially in how it plays with other gain pedals. Pushing the circuit with an additional booster, overdrive, distortion or fuzz pedal will get it going “over the top” – although, on its own, the Super 100 will still distort with the round, almost chunky characteristics of the original.
For controls, there’s a master volume pot, a drive control, a three-band EQ and a sag knob, which is routed to control an optical compressor/limiter circuit to either tighten or open up the pedal’s overall output.
The Super 100 comes as the latest of amp emulation stompboxes from Skreddy Pedals. The brand’s two previous pedals, the Twangophile and Rubber Soul, model a classic American tube combo and small British tube combo, respectively.
The Super 100 is available now for $239.
