Unleash the Power of Pure, Sparkling Overdrive with the ZVex Channel 2!

The ZVex Channel 2 is not just a pedal; it's a gateway to the rich, textured world of transparent overdrive and a beacon of simplicity in a sea of complex stompboxes. Derived from the second channel of the renowned Super Duper 2-in-1 pedal, the Channel 2 is a compact powerhouse that brings you from a unity gain line buffer to a light, transparent overdrive, all within a small, pedalboard-friendly footprint.

A Symphony of Overdrive

Imagine plugging your guitar into the Channel 2 and being greeted with a cascade of sparkling overdrive that enhances every note, every chord, and every melody you play. The overdrive is natural, akin to a valve amp being pushed just to the brink of breakup, offering a warm, dynamic response to your playing nuances. Whether you're playing gentle, melodic passages or digging in for a soulful solo, the Channel 2 responds with a rich harmonic tapestry that complements your musical expression.

Versatility in Simplicity

With just two knobs, Master Volume and Gain, the Channel 2 offers a spectrum of tones, from a clean boost reminiscent of the Super Hard-On pedal to a lush, full-bodied overdrive. The Gain control uniquely adjusts both the gain and DC bias on the MOSFET transistor, introducing a rushing noise as it’s adjusted - a characteristic quirk that is entirely normal and part of the Channel 2's charm.

The Ideal First Pedal in Your Chain

With an input impedance of 5 Million ohms, the Channel 2 ensures that your pickups are not loaded down, preserving the sparkle and clarity of your guitar tone, even when using long cables. It’s a practical addition to any pedalboard, perfect for kicking things up a notch without losing the inherent character of your instrument.

A Pedal for Every Player

Whether you're a seasoned professional or a bedroom guitarist, the Channel 2 provides a straightforward path to beautiful overdrive tones, acting as an additional channel on your amp, a line buffer, or a boost that adds that extra sprinkle of magic to your sound.
