Another very poplar distortion pedal, this pedal has the tube-like crunchy overdrive and a bass boost that is as fat as the Pillsbury Doughboy on a King Biscuit binge.
The Harp Break pedal provides clipping distortion with a full range of clean to hard grit. As LEDs begin to conduct, they produce a soft clipping distortion that is very similar to vacuum tube distortion. The soft clip is visibly evident by the dim lighting of the LED on the face of the pedal, and as the DRIVE is increased the LED clips harder and begins to glow brighter: the brighter the LED, the harder the clip. The tone is very close to vacuum tube distortion but without the overtones produced by tubes. The tone is much better than typical solid state distortion created by transistors, but that is not all. The Harp Break features a 20dB BASS BOOST feature to add a fat bottom end to your tone. This pedal is a great tool to dirty up an otherwise clean amp and create distortion when going into a PA. When the pedal is not used to produce distortion, it can be used to fatten up your tone by providing
The pedal can be powered with a 9V battery or a DC adapter. The DC adapter requirements are a regulated 9V DC with a minimum 100mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center. The battery is switched OFF when an external power adapter is used, and the "IN" jack acts as the pedal ON/OFF switch. Power adapters are sold separately.

Hail the Lone Wolf Harp Break Pedal!
The Harp Break is a great tool to have on board! I have a Fender V3 100 Watt Bassman amp and a Peavey Delta Blues 2-10 tube amp. All of my mic's are JT-30 Astatic bullet mics and one biscuit mic. I have the following pedals set up in this order Harp Break - Harp Attack - V2 Delay pedal. I am amazed at what I can do with just the Harp Break! Purchase a Harp Break if you are looking for that hard gritty sound that goes to another level. You will not be disappointed.
Only used once last week at a jam. As usual it was way too loud. Couldn't hear myself. When I get in a better environment I'll let you know. From what I hear at home it definitely has potential.
works great when most pedals feedback on a Fender tonemaster amp
