Forget the conventional and use this overdrive stompbox to give you a clean boost right up to a wood splitting agressive distortion.
The pedal features three controls: Boost will adjust the input signal volume, Log Factor controls the amount of logarithmic distortion and VOL is in charge of the output level. A true bypass switch is present, as well as a LED and the pedal is powered by a 9.6V supply.
The Electro-Harmonix Lumberjack Log Overdrive
What makes the EHX Lumberjack LOG Overdriver Pedal great is the unique overdriven sound that that this compact unit kicks out.
Most conventional effect pedals use linear taper knob but the the Lumberjack Log Overdriver uses an audio taper potentiometer which creates a logarithmic sweep giving a totally unique sound that is dynamic and gritty.
BOOST Knob – This knob controls the volume of your input signal. It can be used to boost a quiet guitar, to achieve more distortion, or, when set to higher settings, allows your natural guitar tone to blend with the overdriven signal.
LOG FACTOR Knob – This knob controls the amount of logarithmic distortion created by the LUMBERJACK. As you turn LOG FACTOR clockwise, overdrive distortion increases.
VOL Knob – Sets the output level of the LUMBERJACK.
FOOTSWITCH and LED – The Footswitch selects whether the LUMBERJACK is engaged or in true bypass mode. When the effect is engaged, the LED is lit.
INPUT Jack – This ¼” jack is the audio input for the LUMBERJACK. The input impedance is 1M Ohm.
AMP Jack – This ¼” jack is the audio output from the LUMBERJACK. The output impedance is 100 Ohm.
9V Power Jack – Plug the output of the supplied AC adapter into the 9V power jack located at the top of the LUMBERJACK. The LUMBERJACK requires 100mA at 9VDC with a center negative plug. The LUMBERJACK accepts Boss/Ibanez style AC Adapters.
