    I really like how it sounds on the video (I HAVEN'T TRIED ONE YET!), great eq options and high gain. All of us metalheads want that. I just wish that the boost option had been after the gain, to get a good solo volume. Don't get me wrong, I have used boost pedals before a gain pedal in the past, but I prefer that with low gain pedals. With high gain pedals I have found it unecessary and noisy.

    It would have been cool to have a switch that allows you to choose where you want the boost; pre or post. I am planing on getting one by mid April so I will post my findings here.

    Now Shipping!

    The Palladium Gain Stage effects pedal is the first stompbox that actually captures the feel and responsiveness of a high gain tube amp.

    Here's Keith demoing the Palladium. All of the gain sounds are from the Palladium Gain Stage Pedal, through clean signal chains.



    Let us know what you think!

    Some of our pedals do carry the designation "Designed and Assembled in Santa Barbara." These pedals are designed in Santa Barbara, just like our Made in USA pedals, with some of the manufacturing outside the United States, and final assembly and testing at our Santa Barbara factory.

    We use both country of orgin designations because we always want to be clear and transparent about how and where we are making our products. Regardless of which label is used, our passion and obsession for amazing sound, quality and reliability is reflected in every product we make.

    . From what I understand, Duncan pedals are only put together here - to save money. Which makes the 300 dollar price tag perplexing.

    I'm a tester. I've only bought one guitar without having played it and thankfully I love it. All my pedals have been ones that I've played before buying.

    I'd love to try one of those out but none of the shops around here sell them. I'm gonna have to head up to Chicago Music Exchange next time I go home.
