Capable of transparent punch to touch-sensitive amp-like textures and fuzzy blast that's rich in color, Haymaker has it all: it's great at stacking and complementing your other drives, it's made by hand in our "small-batch distortery", and features a gorgeous powder coated 1590BB "big boy" enclosure with top-loading jacks to take up less pedalboard real estate.
Punch: controls the amount of drive.
Shape: is based on a mod Philip Ruetz shared with us; it sets the frequency response and overall grit or "hair" in the signal.
Highs: is a low-pass filter that manages the treble content.
Volume: adjusts the overall output.
Mode: The Mode Switch switch rotates the clipping network into different circuit locations for a variety of tones. MODE A is classic, soft clipped overdrive. MODE Bremoves the clippers for less compression and more output. MODE C is hard clipped drive, capable of distorted and fuzzy sounds at higher settings. On the inside is a wet/dry control trimpot. Nothing to see here. Move along.
