The Accomplished Badger MkII (£140 RRP)
The Fredric Effects Accomplished Badger is an original two stage boost, with an op-amp buffer/boost driving a hand-selected Germanium transistor gain stage. Because of the nature of these two gain stages, the Accomplished Badger can be used as a sparkly clean boost, to just push an amp to breakup, or for a grittier saturated sound like a torn speaker or an overloaded recording desk tone. More versatile than straight clean boosts, the Accomplished Badger is a very useful pedal to have around.
The new MkII Accomplished Badger incorporates an internal charge pump to run at 18v (from a 9v input) and an audio-grade Triad output transformer for more musical saturation and breakup. The pedal also incorporates three DIP switches on the circuit board for more gain, soft clipping and hard clipping for overdrive and distortion tones.
