Crowther Hotcake Hot Cake Overdrive Pedal in Good Condition!First made in 1976 by Crowther, the Hot Cake is a boost/overdrive pedal designed to leave the undistorted component of the guitar sound unchanged while providing a nice fat distortion sound without resorting to a treble cut circuit which will also affect the guitars tonality. With three different controls Level, Drive, and Presence you can modify your sound to your specific needs without sacrificing your tonality. New to the pedal is it now features two voicing: "Normal" and "Bluesberry". "Bluesberry" voicing has a slightly less buzzy edge at the onset of distortion.Features:The Hot Cake is designed to leave the undistorted component of the guitar sound unchanged, while providing a nice fat distortion sound without resorting to a treble cut circuit which will also affect the guitar tonality.With the Drive and Presence controls set to minimum, and the Level at around 2 o'clock, you should be hard pressed to hear any change in the sound at all when you switch the Hotcake in and out.You can get a clean volume boost by increasing the Level control. Increasing the Drive will give you a thick distortion sound with a little bit of edge to it, and the Presence control adds some mid-range punch to the sounds.The Hot Cake also handles chords well. It is recommended that the Hot Cake is patched between the guitar and amplifier, rather than into an amplifier's effect loop.Generally speaking, if you are happy with your guitar and amplifier combination, the Hot Cake will work well as a primary distortion. It works superbly to send an already overdriven amp over the edge into smooth distortion;ideal with non-master volume valve amps.Some scrapes and chips, see the pictures.WORLDWIDE AND EXPRESS SHIPPING AVAILABLE!International Buyers: Standard shipping has NO TRACKING but a customs number.
