Moustache Audio Chevron

The Ibanez Tube Screamer is the best selling pedal of all times, and also the most cloned one. The Moustache Audio Chevron Overdrive belongs to the family of TS emulation, and offers a “Swiss Knife” angle to the format, with five knobs (two gain and a three-band EQ) and three toggle switch to color the sound in different ways, delivering from screamer-like tones, to transparent overdrives, and everything in between.

The Pre/Post toggle places the EQ circuits before or after the gain section, allowing you to drive frequencies harder in the pre mode, or shape your overdriven signal in post mode.

The Fat toggle, changes the cutoff frequency of the high pass filter in the clipping circuit, allowing you to switch between mighty lows or tight bottom end.

Finally, the Odd/Even toggle gives you two clipping options.  Changing dynamics with even symmetrical clipping or tube-like asymmetrical clipping.

The Chevron is a classic style overdrive which features easy-to-use controls.  From mid-boosted screamer-like tones, to transparent overdrives, and everything in between, the Chevron does it all. It works great with any style of amp or guitar. The tone stack on the Chevron separates it from most drive pedals. The active 3 band tone stack can be switched to before or after the drive circuit.  This allows you to drive frequencies harder in the pre mode, or shape your overdriven signal in post mode. With the Fat switch, you can change the cutoff frequency of the high pass filter in the clipping circuit, allowing you to go from tight “mid-focused” drive tones, to unbridaled fatness. The Chevron also features variable clipping options.  The ‘Even’ setting gives you typical symmetrical clipping options, found in many classic styled overdrives.  The ‘Odd’ setting gives you a more dynamic, and tube-like distortion by utilizing asymmetrical clipping. It’s a versatile overdrive that lets you tailor your sound to best fit your needs.
