Electro Harmonix Spruce Goose Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal with 3 Levels of Input Gain

Liftoff with the Electro Harmonix Spruce Goose Overdrive, an elevated take on a Bluesbreaker-style OD with a smooth, rich breakup that retains clarity and dynamics. The Spruce Goose soars with a host of new features including a Lift switch accessing 3 input gain settings, additional output, and expanded EQ to send your tone flying. From meaty boosts to smooth singing leads, the Spruce Goose steers your tone into a variety of inspiring and musical directions.
Boosts Your Sound
The engine of the Spruce Goose is an overdrive circuit renowned for its natural breakup and amp-like response. This circuit is then elevated to new heights by the Lift switch which selects between 3 levels of input gain. Lift effectively works as an input boost, goosing the front end of the drive circuit hitting harder, and producing a more compressed, saturated tone while still retaining its dynamic feel and transparent tone. Gain and Vol knobs adjust for exact drive and output levels. EQ of the pedal consists of a Treble knob for taming topping and an active Bass knob to cut or boost bass frequencies. Bass is especially helpful for adding girth to single coil guitars or tightening the low end on warmer humbucker guitars. The Spruce Goose also features mechanical relay true bypass switching with latching and momentary action. Tap the footswitch for a normal latching toggle or press and hold the footswitch for a momentary blast of gain and boost. Great for stepping out in front of the mix for pulling a quick lick or moment of sonic chaos.
Versatile Footswitch
The soft footswitch works both like a standard latching footswitch and a momentary footswitch. The latching action means each press and release of the footswitch will toggle between bypass and effect modes. A momentary change between bypass and effect occurs when you press and hold the footswitch. The Spruce Goose changes state immediately upon pressing the footswitch. If you continue to hold the footswitch for more than half a second it will return to the previous state when you release the footswitch. Momentary hold action can be disabled completely by performing the following procedure, first, power down the Spruce Goose. Press and hold the footswitch. While holding down the footswitch, apply power to the Spruce Goose. Continue to hold down the footswitch. After about 2 seconds, the LED blinks. A slow blink means momentary footswitch holds are disabled. A fast blink means momentary footswitch holds are enabled. Release the footswitch. The momentary footswitch hold setting is remembered through power-cycles so you can set it and forget it.
