The Atlas

The Atlas

The Atlas is a distortion and octave down pedal armed to provide you with low frequency enrichment and tonality.


The distortion portion of The Atlas is compromised of power amplifiers, providing thick and full high gain saturation to embody your signal in a wall of distortion. The distortions amplitude is controlled by the ‘distortion’ parameter, allowing the user to engage with the amount of distortion signal present in the pedal’s output.


The octave down portion is provided curtesy of a binary counter chip, providing a ‘glitchy’ and ‘synthy’ octave down element to your signal. This chip provides some unique sonic characteristics and artifacts, introducing an exciting character and feel to your playing. Again, the amplitude of the ‘octave down’ is controlled by the octave down parameter, dictating the amount present in the pedals output.


If you’re looking for a clean, perfectly tracked, linear octave down pedal The Atlas is not for you. If you want character, weirdness and heaps of distortion, The Atlas is here for you.


Performance advice: Due to the nature of ‘analogue’ octave down pedals, they track guitar signals most optimal when the guitar signal is via the neck pickup. It can be further enhance by rolling off the treble and playing further up the neck.
