GENZLER® AMPLIFICATION proudly announces the third effects pedal in their pedal product line, the CRASH BOX 4™, CLASSIC BASS DISTORTION.
This new CRASH BOX 4 model continues the collaboration of the GENZLER AMPLIFICATION design team and Andy Field, former Genz Benz engineer. Together they possess decades of innovative audio product design and manufacturing expertise. The GENZLER® AMPLIFICATION pedal line continues to explore a variety of pedal concepts based on their decades of collaboration together, looking back into hundreds of pages of their old design ideas, and to explore interesting concepts and blending them with new innovations
And now the new CRASH BOX 4™ takes up where the original 4 ON THE FLOOR™, Classic Overdrive Pedal leaves off. While the 4-OTF compares to the smooth, effortless shifting of a syncro-mesh, manual transmission —- the CRASH BOX 4™ is reminiscent of the rough shifting, gear grinding, non-syncro straight-cut, gear boxes in vintage off-road vehicles and heavy trucks – often called “heavy metal” vehicles.
The is an ALL-ANALOG distortion pedal that dynamically emulates 4 different distortion types found in popular tube and solid-state distortion circuit topologies and then gives the player additional flexibility and control over drive/gain, distortion path (only)–high pass and low pass filters and separately a clean signal path blend. The result is the ability to tailor and fine tune the distortion to fit a wide spectrum of music and playing techniques, without the loss of touch sensitivity, musicality, or the addition of excess noise.
