Jackson Audio - 'Golden Boy'
Transparent Overdrive

RME HDSPe AIO Pro

Overdrive Pedal with
Boost and 3-band Equalizer
Slide guitar hero ‘Joey Landreth’ likes his overdrive to be clear, dynamic and drenched in harmonics. As such, himself and the guys at ‘Jackson Audio’ got together to work on designing Joey’s dream overdrive, the results lie in the ‘Golden Boy’. Taking inspiration from the classic bluesbreaker-style circuitry, Jackson Audio’s ‘Golden Boy’ is an out and out tone frenzy, and also features four clipping diode presets, a MOSFET boost circuit and 3-band Baxandall-style EQ.

Furthermore, ‘Golden Boy’ features Jackson Audio’s magnificent ‘Gain Cycle’ feature, which enables you to crank the ‘Golden Boy’s gain across 4 settings, each getting heavier and more saturated. It should be noted, all of these paramters are able to be fully controlled through an external MIDI switch.

Amazing Features • Developed in collaboration with slide master Joey Landreth
• Based on Joey’s favorite bluebreaker-style overdrive circuit
• Baxandall-style 3-band EG for flexible tone shaping
• Versatile overdrive pedal for serious tone addicts
• Four selectable clipping diode presets

Baxandall-style EQ

back

hugely responsive EQOften overlooked by guitarists, a great EQ is the difference between good guitar tone, and great guitar tone. For this reason, Jackson Audio included a 3-band Baxandall-style EQ to shape your tone.

Baxandall-style EQs are known for their gently-sloped curves which deliver organic and rich tone shaping, which is the reason why they’re some of the most commonly found EQ’s found in studios across the globe.

Furthermore, the ‘Golden Boy’s EQ can be a god send if you ever find yourself playing through a less-than ideal amplifier, compensating in tone.

Innovative Gain Cycle feature

back

MOSFET boostThe ‘Gain Cycle’ mode is one of the standout features found on the ‘Golden Boy’, often not seen on other overdrives. Basically, the ‘Golden Boy’ split’s the maximum gain into 4 equal sections, allowing you to crank up the gain to fit the dynamics of your performance.

Begin with a mild overdrive, then progressively crank it up getting heavier, until you reach the final, most saturated stage. Then add the MOSFET boost as the final layer, for searing lead tone!

4 Boost Presets

4K Recording

dynamic drive modesThe boost circuit is in its own true bypass loop which means it can be used independently of the drive circuit. The boost circuit in the 'Golden Boy' is a Mosfet based boost much like the Amp mode found in our best selling Prism Preamp pedal. To activate/deactivate the boost circuit simply press the boost footswitch.

One of the things that makes the boost in the 'Golden Boy' different from other boosts on the market is that it has 4 presets available. Each preset is EQ’d slightly differently to allow it to alter how it interacts with the overdrive circuit in the 'Golden Boy' or any other pedal you may have in your rig

Preset 1
YELLOW LED
Bright Boost. Very useful for creating a thinner sound or when boosting a thick sounding overdrive.

Preset 2
GREEN LED
Mid Boost. Not as thin as the yellow mode, the green mode allows more lows and takes on the character of a mid boost.

Preset 3
AQUA LED
Tailored Boost. Most people will find this a perfect setting that will complement most any overdrive setting in the GOLDEN BOY.

Preset 4
BLUE LED
Full Range. No tonal coloring here! Just your guitars natural tone!
