Yes, it is time for another new module. Today we announce our Green Light module. It compares to the Mad Professor Little Green Wonder (LGW). The Green Light is technically a close relative of the Tube Screamer, sort of a “Tube Screamer for people that don’t like Tube Screamers”. Lower compression and more headroom, along with tweaked distortion allow it to stack well with other drive modules or amps. It can be used to smooth out other effects that may have a bit of an edge to them. The clipping, which contributes greatly to the overall distortion, is different from the normal silicon diode clipping found in the wide range of Tube Screamer-style circuits. Green LEDs are used, resulting in drive that can go from mild to crunchy, but isn’t really meant to get into high-gain distortion. Works better for blues, country, and classic rock than metal. The Body (Tone) control also differs from other circuits in this class. It gives you control of low mids to treble content, with a wider tonal range than your typical mid-hump green pedal clone, including a bit more on the low end. The Green Light gives you the option for less tone coloring, and ranges from boost to Stevie Ray cookin’ blues rock. We normally build the Green Light to run at 9V, but can go up to 18V for cleaner sound with more headroom.
