Super Clean in Box. Lightly touched. Works and sounds great.
The Akai Shred-O-Matic offers mind-bending 12AX7A tube and diode distortion in one unit. Using Shred-O-Matic’s MIX function in either Tube or Diode allows player dynamics to customize the distortion.
When playing softly, the signal is routed only through the tube section, resulting in a mellow, low-level distortion. Harder playing will mix the warm, low-level output of the tube section with the screaming output of the diode section. For maximum flexibility, 2 user selectable modes are also available, Smooth, providing a gradual change between tube and diode and Passion, providing an abrupt change.
Shred-O-Matic features easy-to-see and easy-to-use controls including output level control and LED indicator for distortion mode. The foot switch turns the effects on and off and when the unit is off, and the internal circuitry allows the signal to bypass the unit, without coloring the sound. The Shred-O-Matic’s foot pedal provides total control of either the output level or the drive level. Additionally, while operating in the Mix mode, the pedal can be used to switch between tube and diode distortion.
Mind-bending 12AX7A tube sound plus diode distortion in one pedal.
Pedal allows dynamic control of drive level, output level, and the ability to mix tube and diode distortion for shred customization.
The Shred-O-Matic allows you to choose between 4 distortion modes:
TUBE – Provides the warm, fat sound of tube distortion.
DIODE – Provides the harder, edgier sound of diode distortion.
MIX – In both modes the mix is determined by player dynamics. When playing softly, the signal will be routed only through the tube section, resulting in a mellow, low-level distortion. Harder playing will mix the warm, low-level output of the tube section with the screaming output of the diode section. Two modes are available.
SMOOTH – Gradual change between tube and diode.
PASSION – Abrupt change between tube and diode.
Pedal Assign – Selects the Foot Pedal assignment. In DRIVE, the Pedal controls the distortion level In OUTPUT, it controls the volume of the output signal.
