The Persuader Deluxe utilizes a Darlington preamp to push cascaded triode vacuum tubes into distortion.
Four dual triode vacuum tubes are included with each kit (JJ 5751, 12AX7B China, JJ 12AU7 and a NOS USA-made 12AT7). Swap to create a wide range of tones from just a hint of break up from the JJ 5751 to over the top crunchy distortion using the NOS US made 12AT7.
A boost switch provides an additional layer of flexibility with added gain and a little extra bottom end. An LED indicator lights up when the Persuader Deluxe is engaged and not in true bypass mode.
Operates on a 9V battery or AC adapter, which is not included. When completed, this pedal draws considerable current and battery life will be short. The Godlyke 9-volt adapter (M-PAS-S) may be purchased separately to power your new pedal.
