The Gold Nugget is one of the most complex designs of the NGED/NWP family. This pedal has two switches and four knobs. Switch 1 is a simple on/off switch that controls three knobs: Gain, Volume, and Tone (this section of the pedal is MEAN, and we do mean MEAN!). The first section can be used as clean boost or distortion whereas the second section is only able to be engaged while the first section is on. This second section is controlled by switch 2. This switch activates a boost circuit that has it's own knob to allow the player to use the first section as a rhythm sound while engaging the second section for a solo boost. This pedal is beautiful, but like all beautiful things, the mean side shows sometimes...aww who are we kiddin!? The mean side is all you see on this puppy, she's just total rage! Like it's namesake (Gold Daniels) this pedal is big and burly and not afraid to rip your head off!
