Never before has one simple, giant knob offered so much versatility. Unusually, when the dial on the Acapulco Gold is turned all the way down there's no sound produced at all, but as you start to notch it up a warm, fuzzy distortion begins to emerge. Beyond this point the sound begins to compress, but it doesn't become raspy or splutter like you might expect, it instead offers a smooth almost endlessly sustained tone you've only dreamed of before. When it's fully cranked prepare yourself for a huge roar of sound like an amp on the verge of sonic explosion. It's almost fuzz, but not quite. The Acapulco Gold is Loud.
More options are opened to you when you start fiddling with your guitar's volume and tone controls. At the lowest guitar volume settings, the Gold provides a hazy, Nashville-sounding spank to your tone. At just under full whack, the Gold turns into a crunchy, raunchy overdrive. And of course when the guitar volume is completely open, the pedal unleashes its signature roar. Apart from the big dial, the device only features a ¼" jack input and output, and a super-bright white LED indicator to make sure you're always in control. Requires a 9V DC power supply.
