SUMMER NAMM 2016: Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone Micro

Pigtronix have announced a brand new addition to their range of guitar effects pedals, the Philosopher's Tone Micro.

The original Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone is known for its noiseless clean sustain, and the new micro version is no different. Ushering in a new generation of futuristic analog technology, the Philosopher's Tone Micro delivers all of the parallel optical compression and unrivaled sustain of the original award-winning Pigtronix pedal in a micro-size chassis that runs on standard 9V external power. 

In addition to VOLUME and SUSTAIN controls, the Philosopher's Tone Micro features a parallel BLEND knob that allows the musician to mix their instrument's original tone with the compressed sound effect. This technique restores natural pick-attack and allows more extreme sustain settings to remain musical. The TREBLE control provides up to 6db cut or boost at 2KHz for fine-tuning the frequency response of the effect. The Philosopher's Tone Micro features true-bypass switching and 9V operation, with internal 18V power rails for maximum clean headroom, even when used with hot pickups and line-level signals.

Features:

  • Noiseless Clean Sustain
  • Blend control for Parallel Compression
  • Treble EQ for Boost or Cut at 2kHz
  • Runs on standard 9V external power
  • Internal 18V power for max headroom
  • True Bypass switching
  • Size = 3.75" x 1.5" x 1.75"
