Here’s a video by Living Room Gear Demos of a pedal by a German company we weren’t aware of, focused on creating noisy and edgy stompboxes.
Enter the JPTR FX Jive Reel Saturator! Notes from the builder below.
Somehow I found an old Akai gx 210d, one of those old tape machines your grandpa was using when listening to his recordings.
This device had a lovely saturation when you plugged your guitar into and dialled everything in the red area.
The sound of the old reel to reel tapes; girth that I was obsessed with.
This is what the JIVE – REEL Saturatior exactly reflects. If you want to add some age to your guitar, bass, synth, whatever and like to get some of the old vintage vibe and feel. You can use it as a volume boost, semi transparent overdrive, ennoble your sound with variable distortion or tear some walls down with a LOTS of DB. It is up to you.
You have 3 switches for some extra age, which add different types of gain to your sound.
If you are into lofi garage whatever or just want to make your synth sound like 1972, this is your dream come true.
Controls: Gain/Volume/diode clipping
runs at 9v to 18v
