In addition to VOLUME and SUSTAIN controls, the Philosopher’s Tone Micro features a parallel BLEND knob that allows the musician to mix their instrument’s original tone with the compressed sound effect. This technique restores natural pick-attack and allows more extreme sustain settings to remain musical. The TREBLE control provides up to 6db cut or boost at 2KHz for fine-tuning the frequency response of the effect. The Philosopher’s Tone Micro features true-bypass switching and 9V operation, with internal 18V power rails for maximum clean headroom, even when used with hot pickups and line-level signals.
Practitioners of the mystical and ancient art of alchemy long sought an element called the Philosopher’s Stone, believing that, if found, it could turn lead into gold and bestow immortality upon the person who wielded it. The Philosopher’s Tone Micro represents an analog musical equivalent to this mythical substance in the world of guitar.
