Presenting the all new Free The Tone CC-1B Crunchy Chime Booster Pedal.

The Crunchy Chime is Free The Tone's new booster pedal with an equalizer function. A point worthy of special mention is its harmonic components. This new boost circuit that generates such rich higher harmonics is the result of their research on the harmonic components of vintage guitars and amplifiers. One of the attractive features of vintage musical equipment are their abundant and brilliant harmonics. Free the Tone completed this boost circuit after various experiments and tests to learn the secrets of pleasant overtones that are never strident. With this pedal, you will feel greater vibrations from your strings and your guitar/bass will sound much livelier.

Every amplifier has different characteristics and there can be a problem such as a booster making the lower register sound dull. Actually, in the development stages, Free the Tone had difficulties with these ample harmonics sounding muddy on some of the amplifiers we tested with, as unnecessary harmonic components conflicted each other to yield a harsh sound, etc. So they thought it is necessary to be able to adjust the frequency characteristics to match the gear being used and to get closer to an ideal sound. Their specially developed new equalization circuit creates a natural sound as if you were not using an equalizer for making tone adjustments for boost/cut. The characteristics become flat when both the TREBLE and BASS knobs are set to the 12 o’clock position. A MODE switch to select frequencies is provided for the equalizer’s BASS control. This works well for the lower register of a 7-string guitar or bass guitar.

Born from a new way of thinking, the “CRUNCHY CHIME,” a booster with equalizer, greatly widens the range of sounds from your guitar or bass and increases the pleasure of playing and sound making.

Some of the key features of the Crunchy Chime include:
  • The MODE switch selects the boost/cut frequency range of the BASS control.
  • The newly designed equalizer circuit creates natural sound.
  • The CRUNCHY CHIME can be used as a MID booster by setting both the TREBLE and BASS knobs to the cut position.
  • The boost circuit for volume control has an adjustable range from -16 dB to +17 dB.
  • FREE THE TONE’s original HTS (Holistic Tonal Solution) circuit is implemented.
  • Unlike conventional buffer circuits, the HTS circuit attains both “high sound quality” and “low noise” by performing impedance conversion while fully bringing out sound characteristics of the guitar/bass. The HTS circuit prevents degradation of guitar/bass timbre even when the effect is turned off.
  • There is no need to worry about phase reversal: the output signal is in the same phase as the input signal.
