This is the GlassJaw - a true bypass, high voltage Vacuum Tube 12AX7/ECC83 Foot-pedal for Guitarists!
From a +12vDC input (not included), it generates 150vDC internally to drive the Vacuum Tube "Plates". (Current tube in this model is by Bugera)
A Jfet (MMBFJ202) transistor pre-amp drives the first stage of the Vacuum Tube. Gives "solid-state" guitar amplifiers that real, warm tube-sound! Keeps vacuum-tube amplifiers sounding brilliant!
NOTE a +12vDC Center-Negative Power Supply "wall-wart" (at least 0.75 amps) is required (standard 2.1mm) is not included. (There is NO internal Battery Connection).
This is not a Kit- it is a complete, fully functioning Guitar Stompbox!
WARNING !!! the internal Vacuum Tube is GLASS!. DO NOT DROP. Handle with Great Care!
From an input voltage of +12 Volts (center negative), the internal Buck-Boost power supply generates +150 volts DC sent to the Vacuum Tube Plates (whereas most other tube footpedals only use either +9 or +12 volts).
Output Control varies the audio output. Use caution and always start with this control at "minimum" because it's output is higher than most other foot pedals.
Saturation Control varies the level of distortion, from Clarity to Gritty.
As soon as the +12vDC is plugged in, the Vacuum Tube "Heater" and High Voltage "Plate" Voltages are active (even when the true-bypass Foot Switch is on or off) to prevent a delay in sound output due to the need for the Vacuum Tube to "warm up" (just like vacuum tube amplifiers).
