A highly versatile take on the classic 808-style overdrive. With six different clipping styles,  five bandwidth settings, two adjustable and foot-switchable gain channels, adjustable and foot-switchable boost, selectable buffer and a "Normal/Bright" toggle, the Palisades is the most variable 808 on the market! So many settings it'll wipe every mid-boosting overdrive off your board.

Includes all packaging!

Controls

Boost: Sets the level of the output boost.
Volume: Sets the output level.
Tone: Brighter clockwise, warmer counter clockwise.
Gain A: Sets the gain for the Channel A (lower gain)
Gain B: Sets the gain for Channel B (higher gain)

Toggle Switches

Normal/Bright: Normal is a warm full tone, Bright is livelier tone with more chime.

Buffer: Turns the input buffer on or off. ON is a tighter and brighter tone while OFF is a warmer tone with more sag. The buffer is part of the drive circuit & is only available when the Palisades is activated.

Rotary Switches

Bandwidth: This sets the overall tone and gain structure of the Palisades. 1 is the thinnest setting with the least amount of gain and 5 is the fattest setting with the heaviest gain. Everything else is in between. This control has a major effect on all the settings of the Palisades, especially the gain and voice controls.

Voice: This sets the nature of the Palisades distortion by changing the clipping diodes.
1- No diodes: The most open and least distorted.
2- LED clipping: light clipping with a lot of volume.
3- Mosfet clipping: light gain OD with great harmonics.
4- Asymmetrical Silicon clipping: Tighter light gain OD closest to stock 808.
5- Symmetrical silicon clipping: tighter distorted tone.
6- Schottky Diode clipping: Looser fuzzy tone.

Foot Switches
Activate: True bypass switch
Gain B: Activates Gain Channel B, Features Flexi-Switching.
Boost: Activates the output level boost, Features Flexi-Switching.

Flexi-Switching

This device features Flexi-Switch™ Technology on the Gain and Boost switches! This relay-based, true bypass switching style allows you to simultaneously use momentary and latching style switching.

  • For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate the effect and then tap again to bypass.
  • For momentary operation, hold the footswitch down for as long as you’d like to use the effect. Once you release the switch the effect will be bypassed.

Since the switching is relay-based, it requires power to pass signal.

Power

The Palisades can be powered by a standard 9-volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages!

Current Draw: 45mA  Input impedance: 500K  Output impedance: <10K
