Product Overview Pushing The Envolope Of Clean Boosting
We think the best way to introduce Lunastone pedals is to quote from Steen Grontved-Founder of Lunastone…

"I want loads of transparency and sustain when I kick in a drive pedal. I want to hear my beloved amp and the nuances of my guitar, even at various pickup settings, through the drive. From subtle crunch to high gain, I want to be able to hear me. Because that is when I play my absolute best!"

He achieved exactly this in every pedal he has released so far.

This pusher deals in pure power! Small in stature yet capable of packing a serious punch.

Whether you want to push that well-rehearsed solo above the rest of the band or push your tube amp into natural overdrive the Pusher will always deliver pristine, clean power right there at your foot.

While other boosters do the job of just making make you louder, The Pusher comes at the task in hand by using a more refined approach to boosting. Enhancing and focusing the tonal spectrum where your guitar tone lives. Activate the pedal and you will instantly hear your tone stand out with renewed clarity, punch and definition, as if you were pushing the tubes of a high-quality high-headroom amp, making it perfect for beefing up clean rhythm parts or making melody lines stand out.

But hey, if you just want to use it as an always-on tone enhancer we definitely won't blame you!

However, if you want to get dirty (and we guitarists always have a tendency to go in that direction!) The Pusher is the obvious choice for taking your tone from sweet drive to rapturously wild and powerful. Crank the pedal up and place it in front of your favourite drive pedals, or feed it straight into your already overdriven amp and get ready to hit the crowd with everything you've got including the kitchen sink. From crunchy blues rhythms to hard-hitting power chords and sizzling solos, The Pusher will give you exactly what you are looking for.

Now add True Bypass switching to the mix, so yourcore tone never gets corrupted, and you've stepped onto your new favourite sonic drug

No Compromising Boosting
"Clean boosting may be a simple concept to grasp, but high-quality boosting of an analog signal is not just about notching everything up a few decibels. That's easy.

Just like I spent countless hours on testing analog components to develop the TrueOverDrive circuit, The Pusher builds on methodical testing and listening sessions to find the best possible ingredients that make up this highly intoxicating tone.

As a first step, I went to the main guitar pedal shop in Copenhagen and pulled down every clean booster from the shelf. Then, I started comparing and gained a good understanding of how the individual boosters colored the guitar sound in different ways. Next, I investigated the technology behind in depth. What makes up a great clean boost design? I ended up with a very simple design, that to my ears sounds better than any of the clean boosters I had compared during my research.

However, it turned out that this design was hard to port from hand-wiring to a mass-produced version. I did create a second version suited for production on a larger scale that sounded great. But the trade-off was a tone that was just a bit more like the other - very good - clean boosters I had tried. Players who bought it really loved it, but the slight 'normalization' of the sound kept bothering me, and I felt I had compromised the perfect tone that I live and die for. Therefore, I made a decision that may have been foolish from a business standpoint, but it was the right one from a guitar player's and a tone aficionado's perspective. I pulled it from the product line as I felt it was almost perfect. 'Almost' is the keyword here…

Then, one morning, I woke up and literally had the solution to this problem in my head. I had an idea on how the great tone of the original version of the pedal could be produced at scale without compromising the vintage, tube-like flavour. It worked out perfectly, and here we are with a slightly modified version of The Pusher that I truly feel delivers the great tone of my original hand-wired design. I hope you will feel the same and enjoy letting The Pusher take you over the top."
