Spiral Electric FX Debuts White Spiral Boost
A light JFET boost with a few tricks up its sleeve.
Murray, UT, July 29 – Former DOD/Digitech creative, Tom Cram, has added the White Spiral Boost to the ever-growing list of sought-after pedal designs that his company, Spiral Electric FX, will release this year. After its unveiling at this year’s Summer NAMM, the White Spiral Boost will officially be available for purchase in late August.
The White Spiral Boost is a light JFET boost with a few tricks up its sleeve. Meant as either an “Always On” boost that provides increased harmonic content with a little bit of grit, or as a last-in-chain boost to wake up your amp’s dirty channel. Either use will make your notes seem to jump off the strings, and keep your guitar thrummin’. The “Girth” Control was first introduced with Spiral Electric FX’s Yellow Spiral Drive. Unlike a traditional tone control, the “Girth” is a rotary cap network that either restricts bass or increases bass.
The location of the “Girth” Control in the circuit is user-definable by the Alpha/Omega two-way toggle. In the Alpha (A – Left) position the “Girth” control is placed before the low-gain Grit clipping section of the White Spiral. This position allows more, or less, bass to be sent to the “Grit”, and changes the character and compression of the “Grit”. The Omega (Ω – Right) position places the “Girth” Control after the “Grit” Control and this position changes how much bass content is passed through the circuit. This position is more open, glassy, and Hi-Fi sounding. Bassists will LOVE the Omega selection!
The “Grit” Control does double duty, it both changes the performance of the JFET to create distortion, and also brings in Silicon clipping. These two types of clipping together are slightly asymmetrical and the result is a natural-sounding low-gain grit/grind that mates well with already dirty amp channels.
