The High Octane’s main focus is clarity, response and versatility. The goal for this pedal was to produce a rich, complex, low to mid gain overdrive in a simple package with lots of output. The tone is smooth and full bodied yet crisp and clear, highly responsive to player dynamics, pick attack and guitar output; as such, it cleans very well up as you reduce your guitar's volume.
The High Octane’s gain ranges from a natural clean boost to a gritty low to medium gain OD. SolidGoldFX has included a two-way mode switch providing modern and vintage overdrive characteristics. The modern mode relies on MOSFET technology to provide a natural, crisp, uncompressed breakup and high output. The vintage mode provides extra compression, added saturation and a warmer, more rounded overdrive tone. They have also included a specially tuned tone control to help dial in just the right tonal balance. If more distortion is required, simply put a boost pedal in front of the High Octane and dial in as much layered, creamy saturation you desire.
