Sleek, stylish , powerful. Meet the brain child of Jackson Audio and alt-country star, Joey Landreth. The Jackson Audio Golden Boy is a transparent overdrive unlike no other. This is easily one of the most versatile pedals available on the market.
Your tones will sound bigger, and bolder than ever before. Thanks to the Golden Boy, they will ooze in rich, harmonic detail and provide you with unbelievable levels of headroom. With the power of modern day technology, you'll be able to take your manipulation further by engaging one of four types of clipping and utilising the on-board three-band, fixed frequency EQ. Take your tone to the above and beyond with the Jackson Audio Golden Boy!
The Golden Boy is a homage to the legendary Bluesbreaker circuit, made famous by Eric Clapton. Your tone will sound similar to 'John Mayer' when engaging this pedal. It's the perfect blend between grit and transparency. The major difference between the Bluesbreaker circuit and the Golden Boy is that the latter is able to run higher levels of gain. With four unique clipping modes, you'll be able to tailor your tone to however you see fit.
Thanks to the on-board three band active EQ, you'll be able to create a sound that'll suit any task. The Golden Boy removes the need for additional equalisation pedals in your chain. The equaliser that is featured in this transparent overdrive pedal is based on the renowned Baxandall EQ. Baxandall EQ's reside in many Dangerous Audio hardware units. Smooth and subtle, you'll be able to sculpt your tone to remove any fatiguing frequencies that are commonly found in high gain pedals.
