From a gritty boost to a beautiful, singing overdrive, the Diamondback™ is a tube amp's best friend. Designed specifically to go in front of a warm tube circuit, the Diamondback™ works with the tubes in your amp to produce shimmering grit and sustain. It's almost like having another channel on your amp that you never noticed was there before. The Diamondback™ also has more top end and bite to complement warmer amps and humbucking guitars. Because of this, it works perfectly in front of an already crunchy amp to add a tight gain boost for rhythm or solos.
With its 3 band EQ, you can dial the Diamondback™ in to blend seamlessly with your existing tone. Also, the Diamondback's™ "Venom" and "Attack" volume and gain controls not only work to overdrive your tone by boosting the signal, they can be turned back to under-drive an already gained out amp to give you a controllable, rolled back clean tone. So, even a great, one channel, high gain amp can be turned into a 2 channel, tone monster.
All Reptile Series™ pedals are hand built in-house by me just like the rest of the Tortuga line. I decided to apply the "one man shop" build approach to a lesser expensive yet versatile line of pedals instead of farming them out like so many other builders do.
