Chrysalis Records is a record label that in the 70s, brought us some of the hardest-sounding bands. If you’re feeling nostalgic about that era and its sound, then we have fantastic news for you – Crisalida is a circuit created with resurrecting these legendary tones in mind.
Crisalida is a unique transistor-based board that not only emulates the sonic qualities of vintage amps but also captures that vintage amp sound you can hear on a record. An amp on a box, but also on a record!
With just Level, Tone, and Drive, plus a handy On/Off switch, this pedal makes things simple so you can focus on the important stuff. It’s voiced with an emphasis on the midrange, which makes it cut in a live band scenario with its aggressive presence, yet it still has a lot of texture in the low end. Never flabby, full of organic life, and a presence that helps push the guitar forward with loads of clarity and harmonics.
Let your raw signal go through this metamorphoser PCB that will transform your wave into a transparent vintage overdrive sound like you never heard before.
Jethro Tull, Generation X, UFO – all these bands and more are encapsulated into this little monster. Tone hard as a rock? Tone harder than a Metapod!
