In the NUX Lacerate FET Boost pedal, an unbelievably simple user interface disguises NUX's complex Dual FET Circuit Design -
- but don't worry about what's under the hood. Just enjoy the one simple control knob, two boost options, and two bypass modes.
Clean Boost:In the Clean mode, Lacerate only boosts the signal, increasing the volume without any sound colorization. For this reason, Lacerate is one of the cleanest "clean boost" pedals available.
Crank Boost:If you want fat, harmonically rich boost tone, just hold down the foot-switch (1 second) to engage the 2nd stage which adds your overdrive tone. Most boost pedals will only yield about + 20dB maximum, but Lacerate's Crank mode gives you a whopping +35 dB. From average to huge!
Higher Voltage, Increased Headroom & Dynamic:Lacerate has an integrated voltage-doubler which automatically changes 9V to 18V, giving you ginormous headroom and dynamic. WARNING: To avoid damage to voltage doubler circuit, please ONLY use 9V Power Source. It will handle the conversion.
True Bypass or Buffer Bypass:Doubling the voltage to 18V gives you better dynamic, but it also creates a better headroom buffer. A lot of professional guitar players start their signal chain with a stand-alone buffer. Lacerate has an embedded selectable buffer bypass. You can change the bypass mode by turning on the power while holding the footswitch.
