The Sacred Cow is a playful nod to the legendary and extremely expensive gold standard overdrive that has become a near-mythological classic. We sought to create an accessible, pedalboard friendly version of this circuit with some added flexibility while remaining very faithful to the overall tone.
The Sacred Cow has all of the drive and and character that you would expect, ranging from slightly boosted clean to a nice gain with some bite, and it sits perfectly in a mix.
-Gain (blends clean boost and overdrive)
-Tone (adjusts high frequency level)
-2-way tone toggle (left: standard, right: fat/a bit of extra bass) The audibility of this feature is dependent on your guitar/amp set up and volume setting.
-Symmetrical germanium clipping
-Internal charge pump for additional headroom (ONLY use a standard 9v power supply)
-Standard center negative 9V DC supply, or 9V battery (neither included)
-Current draw: ~21mA
-4.8" L x 2.62" W x 1.55" H
