Analog Man


The name Analog Man is right up there with the top dogs in the effects pedals industry, a company that makes reliable, excellent-sounding gear for use by every type of player you can think of. Today’s featured pedal is an excellent example of their work and craftsmanship, and of the sonic prowess they consistently bring to the table. The ARDX20 Dual Analog Delay features two independent echo channels, and a delay warmth that...

Tube Screamers: you love ’em or you hate ’em, so far as I can tell. The stock ones that I’ve played have never really overly impressed me much (although I’ve never had the opportunity to play one of the old classics from the early 80s) – they’re nice overdrives, but nothing too spectacular, in my book. The 808 we’re reviewing today is one of the reissues, but it has been modded by Analog Man,...

The Analog Man Beano Boost is a great pedal for guitarists looking to boost certain frequencies in their tone. This pedal can drive an amp into distortion, add mid bump for lead work and add fatness to single coil pickups. The Beano Boost specs are as follows: – True bypass stomp switch / Status LED – 9V adaptor jack – Volume knob (Which if purchased as a mod can operate as a push/pull switch for Treble boost)...

It’s no secret that Analog.man chief Mike Piera has an ear for tone. His famous King of Tone overdrive can be found on a laundry list of star guitarist pedalboards, and his company builds top-quality offerings in most categories of effect types. I have been particularly drawn to his fuzz pedals; in fact, all of the fuzz on my board bears the Analog.man brand (Astrotone, Dark Peppermint, and Sunbender). Each of the pedals excels at a...

Based on the 1960’s classic Dan Armstrong Orange Squeeze Compressor, the Analogman Juicer has built a reputation as one of the best compressors on the market today. This little orange box features one knob for overall volume and a bias trim pot inside to adjust the compression. About 8db of gain is available with the factory bias setting. This pedal comes with NOS N25457 transistors, germanium diodes, and JRC45582 On-Amp Chip....

The Prince Of Tone (POT) is a tube screamer style overdrive “half” of Analogman’s King Of Tone pedal (The King has 2 of these pedals in one housing). The Prince has 3 knobs (Volume, Tone, Drive), an external 3-way toggle switch to switch gain modes (Boost, Overdrive, Distortion), and it has internal DIP switches (D1 = Lo-Mid lift to enhance the tone of the lower strings, and D2 = Turbo switch for more compression and...

The Analogman Sun Face Fuzz is my first foray into a custom made to order effects pedal. I went for the kitchen sink on this one and got every extra I could (only partial regret was getting a power supply jack as this type of pedal does best with a cheap battery). Can come with a on/off pot switch so you don’t have to unplug the pedal to save battery life (awesome), optional L.E.D. (can drain battery faster). I did not get an...

The majestic, sought after, hyped up King of Tone from Analogman: in all honesty, it’s all these and more. For those who don’t have the option of cranking an amp to get overdrive this is the best OD available. It seems to fill/fit any amp with its own voicing. Can do clean boost, mid gain OD, and high gain OD. Very dynamic, responsive to pick attack, and cleans up brilliantly. The best version for many versatile purposes...
