One knob, many possibilities. The Acapulco Gold is a “one knob power amp distortion box” based on the vibe of a cranked Sunn Model T. The Acapulco Gold interacts perfectly with the Volume and Tone controls of the guitar cleaning as they are rolled down. For those who would like to give their tube amps a “Sunn Model T” kick, the Acapulco Gold is the perfect choice. However, the pedal can produce aggressive distortion sounds in the verge of Fuzz. It responds very dynamically to the playing style. The Acapulco Gold features True Bypass and it’s hand built in Akron, Ohio in the USA.
The Acapulco Gold V2 uses silent relay-based soft touch switching. Audio will not pass without power.
