Get versatile, vintage, British-style overdrive that sounds absolutely golden.
What started as a simple box inspired by classic “Golden amps from Britain” ended up to be more than just an amp-in-a-box. The Pettyjohn Electronics Gold is incredibly touch sensitive, with the ability to clean up with pick attack or volume knob at any setting while covering a very wide gain range. The gain covers many of the designers' favorite flavors; from classic low-gain edge of breakup “plexi” style tones through full on distortion with one knob, making it the company's most versatile overdrive to date.
To handle the wide range of gain, they equipped the Gold with the company's most powerful EQ section to date with three analog filters. This provides the player with maximum tone shaping power. The EQ section includes Pettyjohn's musical Passive Wide-Range Low Cut and High Cut equipped with a top-shelf Auri-cap for ultimate transparency while dialing in top-end and bass response.
The Gold also features a new parametric mid control! With this new “Mids” band, the guitarist can take full control of their tone with a healthy dose of boost OR cut with a wide sweep-able range that covers 400 Hz to 2 kHz, giving you the power to emulate your favorite British tone stack or correct the mid-range of your amp and perfect the tone you hear in your head.
While developing the Gold, the engineers wanted to accomplish the feel of a high wattage amp and the combo of the dual-rail, high-voltage power section. Boutique amp style tone caps help create a truly inspirational experience that blurs the line between pedals and high end amps. Baring no expense, hand-made in Oregon, USA, from top-shelf components, the Gold retains the highest signal quality at any setting that will satisfy even the most discerning guitarist.
Under the hood, the Gold has 2 extra settings controls on Mini-pots. Easily accessible by removing the bottom 4 screws, these controls offer extra tweaking for those who really want to further customize their Gold experience. One toggle controls the headroom of the gain amp. The Gold is set in the High Headroom position, for a dynamic, touch-sensitive drive experience but some guitarist may prefer the Low Headroom setting. The Low Headroom setting will add harmonics and an increased sense of breakup and gain with a slight tightening of the lows. This pushes the upper gain ranges well into classic distortion territory and great for those who want a very saturated tone. The other mini-toggle adds a vintage amp style Orange Drop capacitor into the High EQ circuit. This cap will give the top a slightly softer, warm “vintage” flavor that can work really nice with bright amps or guitars.
The Gold is a low noise, edge-of-breakup to distortion overdrive with amp-like dynamics and feel. It features a versatile three band studio grade EQ for enough tone shaping power to work well in any player’s rig.
