Crow’s Nest is a three-in-one pedal consisting of fuzz, octave and boost circuits. All circuits can be used together or independently, with different combinations creating a vast palette of different sounds.
The fuzz is our Beacon vintage sound one-knob fuzz that reacts to your guitar’s volume. Circuit uses NOS (new old stock) -transistors.
The octave is also a vintage inspired circuit which uses an audio transformer to create the upper octave -effect. Best when played on a neck pickup with your guitars tone turned down. The toggle switch changes clipping diodes which changes the octaves harmonic output and dynamics.
The boost is a multi purpose shaping tool for your tone. Can be used as a buffer with the mids flat and the boost down, as a mid boost to tighten up the sound of your amplifier, as a solo-boost cutting through the mix with volume and frequency or as a sculpting tool to shape the sound of an amplifier.
The Crow’s Nest is designed to be used first in the signal chain, but feel free to experiment with different positions.
