Boost and drive in one.
The Goldsmith is a 100% analog, two-in-one overdrive and boost pedal. The Overdrive section boasts an extremely responsive tone control along with Gain and Volume knobs to deliver a vast array of saturated tones. Voicing allows you to accurately sculpt the critical mid-range frequencies. The boost section features a level setting for the amount of boost you want, along with a drive and color control that affects the saturation and tonal characteristics of the signal.
The Voicing knob and switch allow the Goldsmith Overdrive to venture way beyond your "normal" overdrive pedal. You now have control over the amount of midrange cut or boost, and you can select between two different frequencies for a really wide range of new tone options.
The Boost section even goes beyond just "clean" boost, because sometimes you just want a little more. The Drive control frees you to dial in just the right amount of "rock and roll" grit.
Another really cool feature is the Path switch. Because the Goldsmith is truly two individual pedals in one,it is important to be able to put the two pedals in the order of your choosing. With the Path switch, you can put the Boost before the Overdrive (OB), the boost becomes a volume/solo boost for the Overdrive. With the additional Patch jacks, you can even separate the Goldsmith into two totally separate pedals and place either one anywhere in your pedal board's signal chain.
The unique low battery monitor is one of the hidden "gems" in the new Egnater pedals. Not only does the LED indicator warn you of a low battery condition by flashing at an increasing rate as the battery voltage drops, but if the battery becomes too weak for proper operation, the pedal will automatically bypass itself and all the lights flash to alert you. Our switching circuits are "true bypass" using very high quality sealed relays so you will never be surprised by a dead battery interrupting your performance again.
