PRICE LOWERED BY $6
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 requires a 9v battery or a 9vdc power adapter. The AC adapter requirements are 9vdc with a minimum 100mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center and positive outside. The battery is switched OFF when an external power supply is used, and the IN jack acts as the ON/OFF switch and the pedal is ON as long as there is a cable plugged into the IN jack. Power adapter is not included.

This Pedal is all I thought it would be. Very happy!
Excellent Blues Harp Pedal
Thank you for an excellent experience with this purchase. It helps me sound so much smoother than I did without it. Fantastic.
I wanted to get a bit of time with the Harp Break before reviewing. First, the shipping time and packaging were first rate! They even send decals and cards for vendors in the SPAH world. Very cool. I am using the Harp Break after a noise gate and plugged into a 1982 Mesa Boogie tube amp. The amp in it's own right is a beast for harp use, but placing the Harp Break in front of it allows me to add another level of distortion and bass control. Also, I use the Harp Break volume as my overall volume which is really nice. This unit is a sweet addition to my sound. Thank you Lone Wolf Blues Company, your attention to quality is excellent.
I'm new to Harp playing and have watched uncounted videos on YouTube for information and guidance. I got a killer deal on a Fireball mike knowing it would produce a clean signal. Knowledge full well I would be processing it down stream, recommended by Ricci on YouTube. After watching many of Ricci's reviews I ordered the Harp Break Pedal to put between the mike and amp, Vox AC15. Received the pedal and loaded a new 9 volt battery in it, nothing. The red power light comes on but no how I spun the knobs there was zero effect. I'm waiting to hear back from them asking for a return label and replacement, will update at that time.
Faster than a speeding bullet
Ordered on Tuesday from an Australia on my pedal board on Friday night. Amazing. (And a good product, but you already knew that)
