Noiseless Clean Sustain with Germanium-infused Grit
The Pigtronix Germanium Gold Micro takes their popular Philosopher’s Tone compressor and injects it with a healthy dose of germanium distortion. Add clean sustain to every note you play using the Blend control to combine the compression with your original signal. Then crank up the Grit control to mix in germanium-enhanced dirt. You’ll love the harmonic richness that the Germanium Gold Micro’s unique diode arrangement lends to your tone. And its germanium-infused distortion adds a distinctive tonal coloration that attracts attention. The Germanium Gold Micro runs on standard 9-volt power and features internal 18-volt power for maximum headroom. Complete with true-bypass switching, the Germanium Gold Micro is sure to elevate your playing.
