Orion Schwarzweiss

249.00 CHF





Anyone can do white, and black even more. But true art is created when black meets white. When parallel worlds like these collide and when something greater than the mere sum of both sides is created from nothing. Black [SCHWARZ] stands for overdrive – the best Orion Effekte ever made? White [WEISS] stands for (treble)booster, a pedal that Orion had never built before. Black houses the actual overdrive circuit. „PEGEL“ controls the volume, „KLANG“ the tone as usual, „VERZERRUNG“ the amount of distortion and „SÄTTIGUNG“ influences the sound in various, mostly very subtle ways, but can produce oscillations in extreme settings. White comes with two controls – „PEGEL“ for the volume and „FILTER“ for damping the bass part, e.g. to achieve a TrebleBooster effect. Redefine your own grey zone with the Orion black and white [Schwarzweiss] effects! And notice that in the tension between black and white a new, sometimes oscillating, iridescent and in any case fascinating new overdrive world is waiting for you.
