Palisades™
Mega Ultimate Overdrive

The Palisades is something we said we would never do… an overdrive based on the legendary TS808! After loads of requests, we finally buckled. We ran tests with every popular clone on the market as well as several vintage originals, compared, contrasted and took loads of notes. It was exhausting but informative. In the end, we threw it all away, used our ears and came up with what we feel is the most versatile relative of the 808 available today.

With 6 different clipping voices, 5 bandwidth settings and 2 gain channels, you will be hard-pressed to not find a setting that will wipe every mid-boosting overdrive off your board. The Palisades is a versatile dude that will give you years of loving companionship.

Controls

1. Boost: Sets the level of the output boost.

2. Gain A: Sets the gain for the Channel A (lower gain)

3. Volume: Sets the output level.

4. Gain B: Sets the gain for Channel B (higher gain)

5. Tone: Brighter clockwise, warmer counterclockwise.

Rotary Switches

6. Voice: This sets the nature of the Palisades distortion by changing the clipping diodes.

  1. No diodes: The most open and least distorted.

  2. LED clipping: Light clipping with a lot of volume.

  3. Mosfet clipping: Light gain OD with great harmonics.

  4. Asymmetrical Silicon clipping: Tighter light gain OD closest to stock 808.

  5. Symmetrical silicon clipping: Tighter distorted tone.

  6. Schottky Diode clipping: Looser fuzzy tone.

7. Bandwidth: This sets the overall tone and gain structure of the Palisades. 1 is the thinnest setting with the least amount of gain and 5 is the fattest setting with the heaviest gain. Everything else is in between. This control has a major effect on all the settings of the Palisades, especially the Gain and Voice controls.

Toggle Switches

8. Normal/Bright: Normal is a warm full tone. Bright is livelier tone with more chime.

9. Buffer: Turns the input buffer on or off. ON is a tighter and brighter tone while OFF is a warmer tone with more sag. The buffer is part of the drive circuit & is only available when the Palisades is activated.

Foot Switches

10. Boost: Activates the output level boost, Features Flexi-Switching.

11. Gain B: Activates Gain Channel B, Features Flexi-Switching.

12. Activate: True bypass switch

Tech Specs


List Price: $249.00

Flexi-Switching

This device features Flexi-Switch™ Technology! This relay-based, true bypass switching style allows you to simultaneously use momentary and latching style switching.

  • For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate the effect and then tap again to bypass.

  • For momentary operation, hold the footswitch down for as long as you’d like to use the effect. Once you release the switch the effect will be bypassed.

Since the switching is relay based, it requires power to pass signal.


Power

This device takes a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages!
