Toadworks Mr. Ed
ToadWorks Mr. Ed is a new guitar effect pedal that emulates the elusive “Brown” sound by providing a clear, transparent overdrive that is both dynamic and responsive. Mr. Ed has been tested and used with a wide range of amplifiers, including both tube, solid state and hybrid, and it delivers the goods every time.
Every combination of guitar and amp will have a slightly different eq, output, etc., and the sound will always vary to some degree, so expect the unexpected. This pedal provides an effective duplication of the crunchy, edgy overdrive that defined the Brown Sound, yet remains transparent enough that your guitar sound shines through.
For years, guitarists have sought after that elusive sound, eventually coming to realize that it simply cannot be achieved without spending large sums on vintage gear.
Now, the revolution is at hand - witness Mr. Ed!!!
Mr Ed has a wide range of distortion, from bluesy overdrive to smooth metal crunch with a single turn of the "BROWN" control. Go from an edgy rhythm sound to soaring leads without changing a thing - the pedal actually reacts differently based on signal amplitude, creating a slightly different sound based on HOW you play. Just like a tube amp, Mr. Ed breaks up smoothly - even at full effect, playing softly produces no distortion. No other non-tube effect pedal in the world can make this claim.
Mr. Ed doesn't just distort. In addition to the "Brown" control, you can control the tone and volume of the effect. Mr. Ed has quite a kick - by increasing the "Level" control, you can dramatically boost the signal level, in effect making Mr. Ed a lead boost.
Mr. Ed is hand wired, by people, not machines. From our high quality 3PDT switches to the custom made machined aluminum knobs, every component is the finest available, making Mr. Ed the most well-built and reliable effect pedal in the world.
