Description

The Big Fella by Lunastone Pedals is your one stop station to a modern rock tone in a popular 2 in 1 pedal format.

The tone of this hard hitting drive gem will fill the room with a massive overdrive that is super fat, yet with a firm low end.

The Big Fella is all about sustain and power, yet it is very transparent voice blends smoothly with the sound of your amp when cranked up, supporting the characteristics of your guitar in full.

With the Big Fella at your feet, you simply get a full bodied overdrive with a thick, high gain rawness and a massive punch that makes a small amp sound like a stack blasting at full power.

Back off the volume on your guitar and you’ll get a clean, undistorted sound. Turn it back up and you’re straight back in the hardcore business of rock ‘n’ roll!

The Big Fella gives you two drives, OD1 and OD2. It does have a smooth sounding and crunchy side, but where it truly excels is in the overdrive department, going from brute and rough to brutal and roaring.

Add to that an an independent +15db of post drive boost, lifting your solos right above the band mix. And if you need even more cut through-power, a dedicated tone knob allows you to shape the high and mid frequencies of your overdrive signal.

Finally, true bypass switching makes sure your tone remains pure whenever The Big Fella is turned off.

What is TrueOverDrive™?

There are basically three terminologies that are used to describe distorting guitar effects pedals: distortion, fuzz, and overdrive.  Over the years, these names have been mixed together.

For most manufacturers, categorising is more a matter of taste and what they think a particular effects pedal sounds like rather than the actual physical differences in the electronic circuits.  Essentially, ‘distortion’ covers everything that distorts a signal, whereas ‘overdrive’ relates to overdriving amp circuits, pushing a signal on the input of the amp that is hotter than what the amp is designed to cope with.

Today, most distortion and overdrive guitar effects pedal on the market use clipping diodes to create the distorting effect of the guitar signal. Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive™ pedals, Wise Guy, Big Fella and Three Stage Rocket, use a technique that have no clipping diodes in the signal chain at all.  The overdrive comes exclusively from cascading gain stages, much like in a real tube amplifier.  The result is a very transparent and tube like sound with lots of sustain and body.  The reactions we have received from many guitar players, who have tried our pedals, is that they sound like a hot rodded Fender amp or a Marshall Plexi head driven hard.

Reviews - Guitar Interactive

“OD1 and OD2 differ in terms of headroom and are both extremely dynamic and sensitive to your guitar’s volume pot.  Organic sounding and addictive.  Again, no matter how you set the Big Fella, it sounds and feels fantastic.  I want this pedal!”

“The dynamic control available and the real cascading amp like transparency of Steen Grøntved’s design is a very genuine and notable feature.  What’s interesting is that there are plenty of actual tube drive pedals out there to own and buy, and I have tried most of them, and yet to me, LunaStone simply seems to have done it better without the aid of any onboard tubes at all.”

Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 

The Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 is a high quality clean boost pedal, definitely not just a neutral active volume pedalLunastone Pedals founder and Head Engineer, Steen Grøntved, has deliberately tweaked it to add flavor to your guitar tone, and as a result, Lunastone Pedals have seen many players who actually use the Boost 18 as an always on preamp pedal, simply because they love the natural tube like sound of it.  Now you can continue to do so with Lunastone Pedals Boost 18, but also get an additional kick upwards when using it for boosting. 

Whether you want to push your tube amp into natural overdrive, or just need to lift your solos above the band, the Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 always delivers that truly sought after clean goodness! 

Where other boost pedals just make you louder, the Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 takes a more refined approach to boosting by enhancing and focusing the tonal spectrum right where your guitar lives.  Turn it on and instantly hear your tone stand out with renewed clarity, definition and punch as if you were pushing the tubes of a high headroom amp, making it perfect for beefing up clean rhythm parts or making melody lines stand out. 

But hey, if you just want to use it as an always on tone enhancer we definitely won’t blame you! 

Drive Your Drive Pedals Even Harder 

However, if you want to get dirty though (and we know you do!) the Lunastone Boost 18 is the obvious choice for taking your tone from driven to blissfully wild.  Crank it and slam it in front of your favorite overdrive pedals, or feed it straight into your already overdriven amp and get ready to hit the crowd with everything plus the kitchen sink.  From crunchy blues rhythms to hard hitting power chords and sizzling solos, Boost 18 will give you exactly what you bargained for. 

Now add True Bypass switching to the mix, so your core tone never gets corrupted, and you’ve stepped onto your new favorite sonic tool and secret gem.
