MLC ANIMAL – classical tube driver, inspired by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. The first version was build for Maciej Meller of RIVERSIDE special for WASTELAND TOUR 2018/2019, where we can listening in solo RIVER DOWN BELOW. This is a booster/overdrive pedal with an IC and vacuum tube (TAD MULLARD style 12AX7) driven preamp circuit inside. We can get a smooth, light overdrive tone, to a classic rock-style heavy distortion.
At high gain, it is like a lead crunch tone of a Marshall JCM800 ampliﬁer. Inside is a hybrid fuzz – pre amp circuit. The hard clipping part of the distortion comes from the integrated Class A preamplifier BURR BROWN OPA2134. That strong signal is fed into a vacuum um tube TAD 12AX7 MULLARD STYLE, which does not work to amplify the signal as it would in the pre amp stage of a typical ampliﬁer but It ﬁlters and colors the sound with the tube characteristics.
