Sitek Freya

Freya is a family-run pedal company based in Poland that focuses on hand-building gain pedals. Designed in collaboration with metal guitarist Joss Allen, the Sitek Freya is a Boost + Overdrive combo featuring a low to mid-gain drive and a transparent high headroom booster.

The overdrive circuit features a toggle switch that selects three different clipping voices; here’s more info about the character of the overdrive, directly from the builder:

Freya’s overdrive section was designed to provide a focused mid-push with three distinctive clipping voices, a vast amount of headroom with great clarity of bottom and top-end of the signal. It’s smooth on the clean channel and tightening things up on the dirty channel. The clipping switch allowsyou to choose from smooth, bluesy breakup, open and focused boost to push the front-end of your dirty channel and mid-rich lead tone.

Another toggle between the two footswitches allows to change the order of the overdrive and boost, for extra tonal options.

Freya is a dual pedal designed around guitaris Joss Allen’s style and technique. This amazing player known for his Heavy Metal guitar magic helped us create a versatile dual pedal that can become a new pedalboard staple to all guitarists from Blues to Heavy Metal players.
