Note: I may be able to send out one of these immediately, but usually I'll need anywhere from three to five days to assemble and test one. See the 'Ordering' page on the thaudio.com website for details.
The White Dwarf: a guitar distortion unit. It's not really for metal, but it will give you a lot of dirt if called upon to do so.
See the 'Videos' tab for more.
The White Dwarf has four knobs and a switch:
Gain Controls the amount of distortion. All the way down will still give you some distortion, because this is, after all, a distortion pedal.
Adj (Adjust) Counterclockwise thickens the distortion and adds grit and bite. Also lowers the resonant frequency a little.
Voice Left: more dry, less bass. Right: more bass and "darkness." How much you'll notice the difference will depend on your amp, your guitar, and the Gain/Adj level (more noticeable at higher gain). As you'll hear in the videos to the right, the difference between the switch positions is easier to hear with the Vox AC15 than with the Fender Blues Jr., because the Blues Jr. doesn't do so well with low frequencies.
Bright Allows player to set the high-frequency response somewhere between "not nearly enough" and "way too much".
Vol Controls, you guessed it, output volume
