Tsakalis - Crown - Overdrive Pedal

Tsakalis Crown

The crown jewels Introducing the ‘Crown’ overdrive pedal from Tsakalis Audioworks. Handmade in Athens, Greece, Tsakalis bring us their ‘Crown’ overdrive pedal, designed to faithfully replicate the iconic tones from British amps throughout the decades. From the classic ‘Plexi’, through to the iconic ‘AC’ amps, the versatility and authenticity of the sounds inside this stompbox are truly impressive!

A Wealth of Iconic British Tone

Tsakalis Crown

God save the queen The Crown works fantastically well when used to bring that ‘crunch’ and overdriven sound to an amp at a lower volume, or in bringing the classic British sound to any other amplifier. Tsakalis’s Crown overdrive utilises JFET technology (junction gate field-effect transistor) and from combining three calibrated stages in cascade mode, the resulting tone is a beautifully smooth, creamy, tube-like crunch.

The Crown’s front panel is adorned in typically British graphics and has a simple 3 knob layout, comprising of ‘Level’, ‘Color’ and ‘Drive’. Tsakalis included a further two toggle switches, each labelled ‘Fat’ and ‘Hot’. Tweaking the ‘Color’ knob will determine the style of amplifier, for example a Plexi when in dialled around 10 o’clock, through to an AC at around 3 o’clock. The Crown really comes to life when we blend this with the ‘Drive’ control, there’s some fantastic settings and sweet-spots to be found here.
