Japanese effects manufacturer Animals Pedal introduced the Tioga Road Cycling Distortion pedal at the 2018 Summer NAMM show.
The new pedal is the result of a collaboration between Animals Pedal and Matthew Holl, owner/founder of the California-based boutique effects builder Wren And Cuff.
In describing the circuit he designed for Animals, Holl says, "If you're a fan of the classic Rat® pedals from the past, then you will be a fan of the Tioga Road Cycling distortion." Holl has revamped this classic circuit with fatter lows, and his favorite component values. Additionally, the pedal features a 3-way toggle switch allowing the player to choose between two different distortions (symmetric and asymmetric clipping), as well as a third setting producing a cleaner overdriven sound. "This is one very versatile distortion pedal that can be used for almost any style of music!" adds Holl.
The Tioga Road Cycling Distortion is now shipping to North American dealers.
MSRP: $149 // Street: $119
