More of You
The reason the original BluesBreaker circuit is so legendary, and why so many cool stompboxes have been modeled after it, has to do with the way it introduces harmonics and grit into the tone youâ€™ve already worked so hard to get, without altering itâ€™s natural sound or drowning the playerâ€™s touch in needless extra compression or grit. The Pantheon takes faithful inspiration from this circuit, but keeps the sound entirely yours.
Always the Right Fit
The Pantheon gives you enough tonal tweaking options to enhance the rest of your rig without muddying things up. The Baxandall-style active bass control is neutral at noon but boasts an extremely powerful sweep as you move through the range. And in addition to the standard tone control, youâ€™ll also find a presence control for adding just the right amount of top-end chime to fit your different guitars and output devicesâ€¦ live, in the studio, or as part of a larger chain.
Not just another Clone
This type of overdrive circuit is used in some very different ways by different players…. The native sound has passed the test of time, but Brian Wampler has added enough easily accessible gain control transport you through the decades at the flick of a switch. The 3-way Gain Level switch toggles between the most useful and usable Drive degrees, and the 3-position Overdrive Voice switch selects between hard and soft clipping or a mix of both! Thatâ€™s every shade of dirt youâ€™ll ever need.
