Taking as inspiration the raw, edgy, guitar sounds of punk, new-wave and college-rock bands of the late 70's and early 80's, Hartman Electronics has crafted a distortion pedal for guitar players based on the LM308-the op-amp at the heart of many of the best distortions of that era. hartman lm 308.jpgThe Hartman pedal functions in two modes, selectable on-the-fly via foot switch:

Mode A employs a diode-clipping stage to produce a classic style of distortion: crunchy, articulate, and accentuating the nuances of pick-attack, palm-muting, and pinch-harmonics. User controls allow separate adjustment of volume, distortion, and EQ.

The second operating mode (SYM) transforms the pedal into an overdrive, increasing transparency, headroom, and dynamic response, and producing a hotter output signal suitable for bombarding the input of downstream amps/devices. Together, the two modes provide a broad and versatile palette of semi-clean and distorted tones applicable to a wide array of playing styles and musical contexts.

Each LM308 Op-Amp Distortion features its authentic N.O.S. (new old-stock) namesake, true-bypass switching, premium components, and Hartman's rugged, military-spec plated-thru-hole printed circuit board (PCB) construction.

Hartman LM308 Op-Amp Distortion pedals are made in the U.S.A. and come with One-Year Limited Warranty.
