Presenting the all new Antique Classic Drive pedal from Cornerstone Music Gear.
Have you ever tried chasing that John Mayer tone that everyone knows and loves?
Have you ever played a Screamer style pedal, just wishing you had more control over the tone and dynamics of the pedal?
The new Cornerstone Antique might just be the answer....
The Antique is Cornerstone's take on the classic sounds which are notoriously recognized with Screamer pedals, but don’t worry, the Antique is not simply a clone. While it definitely belongs to the Screamer-like family of overdrives, It has a well-defined tone specifically tweaked to achieve the bluesy sounds of John Mayer.
The Gain and Volume controls are pretty much self explanatory, the magic comes in the EQ controls:
- The TONE control manages the low-mid frequency content.
- The PRESENCE control shapes the hi-mids and high-end content.
- MIDS (cut) toggle switch: manages the overall mids content: in the UP position is the classic TS mids, in the DOWN position mids are cut.
These three controls together allow you to discover a whole new different sounds and colors, all in the tonal range of John Mayer Trio sounds.
Finally, the COMP switch is managing the overall dynamic response of the pedal.
The Antique requires a standard 9V DC, Tip Negative power supply and can be powered by most any standard pedalboard power supply.
