Icarus™ excels at all of these. Its simple layout starts with a “wings” (boost) control that dials up plenty of gain and power. While the low-impedance output instantly eliminates the effect of long cable lengths, the “sun” (treble) control can be dialed down to a natural level of capacitance that is more natural and pleasing sounding to the ear, or dramatically darken and thicken the tone.
Here is a short sample using the Icarus as a clean boost for a strat into a Class A amplifier. The effect comes on at the :10 mark.
And here is the Icarus with a P90 outfitted guitar helping push a vintage Marshall that’s breaking up into a sweet spot. The effect comes on at :16.
Icarus™ is shipping to our retailers now. We did not want to release something until we had something that compelled us to replace the VERY nice boutique boosts that resided on our personal boards for years. Only then did we feel it may be worthy of yours.
