For Ages, overdrive has been the one effect vital for so many.  It’s used to charge through front lines of the mix and deliver a clear message to loyal listeners that won’t soon be forgotten. Ages is a massively versatile overdrive machine standing at the ready for any amp and pickup combination that is thrown at it. It’s a first stage overdrive with innovative features that can stand on its own and stack well with other drives. The rotary knob gives the player the ability to choose from five different states of gain and clipping. Use the dedicated dry knob to pull all dry signal out for rich saturated tones or blend it back in for greater note clarity and punch. Ages is ready to stand its ground and deliver an unforgettable sound.

The five-position rotary knob offers the following gain states:

I.   Low gain mode with symmetric silicon soft clipping. Compressed and smooth.

II.  Low gain mode with symmetric LED soft clipping. Pushed, open, and sparkly.

III.  High gain mode with symmetric silicon soft clipping. Increased saturation and tight.

IV.  High gain mode with symmetric LED soft clipping. Saturated, punchy and big.

V.  High gain mode with symmetric silicon hard clipping. Heavy compression, thick and chewy.

Think of each position as a different “flavor” of the pedal. Fine-tune each of these gain states with the dry knob for a near-infinite supply of gain options.

The Ages comes in an “olive green” enclosure with white, cream and black ink. The artwork features a mythical three trunked warrior elephant ready to charge in a victorious battle."
