Pigtronix PSO Polysaturator
Product Description for the Pigtronix PSO Polysaturator
Pigtronix PolySaturator is a compact yet pwerful distortion featuring an extra-wide gain range coupled with precision tuned graphic EQs and a Class A, J-FET front end. The PolySaturator produces everything from vintagy tweed style break up to outrageous over the top screaming high gain shred tone. It is extremely low noise and can be used as a lead channel or in front of your amp's lead channel.
Unprecedented touch sensitivity and overall range of distortion tones is achieved through multiple gain stages, and active EQ, perfectly balanced to give the musician enhanced control and expression using picking dynamics alone.
The PolySaturator can do gritty, edge-of-overdrive sounds, but crank up the gain and you will be assaulted by face melting ultra-high gain tone that will please shredders and shoegazers alike with impressive string to string clarity. Our unique JRC4558D powered EQ circuits provide 12 db / octave active filtering over three distinct audio bands. This powerful EQ structure combined with our solid-state of the art approach to tube emulation, allows the musician to dial up wildly diverse and satisfying textures of analog distortion.
For those guitarists who are looking to graduate beyond outdated overdrive designs, the PolySaturator presents a flexible and affordable alternative that will outperform any other boutique or mass production distortion pedal available.
Great on guitar, bass and synthesizers!

The holy grail
Review by Ethan
The only thing that I find limiting about this pedal (and it really is par for the course) is that when you try to play chords on the low strings below the 5th fret they lose some of their definition and are liable to get washed out by the rest of your band. But I really wouldn\'t call that a drawback to the pedal. It really doesn\'t detract from how awesome the thing is. I own a Tonebone Hot British, tubescreamer, fulltone \'69, fulltone octafuzz, fulltone full-drive and a couple other randoms. The Polysaturator and the Fulltone Fat Boost are currently the only overdrive/fuzz/distortion/whatever pedals I use. (Posted on 2/27/11)
