Classic Brit Crunch When You Want It
The HardWire SC-2 Valve Distortion guitar pedal provides classic British tone straight to your amp, and true bypass when it's disengaged. The pros choose pedals with true bypass because it's the only way you're going to keep your tone exactly the way you want it between your guitar and amp. The SC-2 also features high-voltage operation for improved headroom over "conventional" pedals, plus a 2-position Crunch/Scoop voicing switch and Level, Gain, Low, and High tone controls. Get incredible crunch tones with the SC-2!
Serious musicians are highly selective in their guitar and amp choices. After all, it's the foundation of their tone. Adding effects to their signal chain is done judiciously. And when they turn off an effects pedal, they need to know it's not creating undesirable noise or coloring the unique character of their tone. In a true bypass pedal, the signal passes straight through the box when the effect is bypassed. When it's on it's on. When it's off it's off. All HardWire pedals feature true bypass.
With the high-output pickups found on some electric guitars, it's not unusual to hear clipping when playing through an effects pedal. This occurs when the voltage range produced by a guitar's pickup is greater than the operating voltage of the effects pedal - normally limited to the voltage supplied by the effect's battery or power supply. HardWire pedals incorporate special circuitry that increases the operating voltage "headroom" above that of the typical pedal. As such, HardWire pedals are compatible with a wider range of guitars and are also at home in an amplifier's effects loop.HardWire SC-2 Valve Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal with True Bypass Features:
