Albert has a large gain range and is very similar to "OCD" style pedals.
The Overdrive is based on a high-quality and high-cost op-amp IC OP275 from Analog Devices: "This new front end design combines both bipolar and JFET transistors to attain amplifiers with the accuracy and low noise performance of bipolar transistors, and the speed and sound quality of JFETs. Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise equals that of previous audio amplifiers, but at much lower supply currents."
The pedal has 2 clipping modes. the first mode is standard on Mosfet transistors, in the second mode soviet germanium diodes are added to the circuit. The two modes are very similar, but the Ge mode has slightly less compression and a slightly brighter attack. The Fat toggle switch adds low frequencies, making the Tone knob more flexible
The LP/HP switch shifts the peak of the Drive knob from low to high. From a more natural sound to a more aggressive and marshaloid sound. The Boost is not an independent effect like in Tephra. Overdrive adds Gain to the value set by the Boost knob when the Boost switch is activated.
There is a voltage doubling circuit inside the pedal with additional power filter, so when the supply voltage is 9V, the operational amplifier in pedal is powered by 18V.
Thanks for your continued support, and remember, these videos are intended to show off the PEDALS and what they can do, not what a brilliant guitar player I am - there are plenty of shredder videos out there, and besides, I'm really a drummer :)
