The PolySaturator distortion pedal from Pigtronix takes the original design even further, adding a Class A J-FET booster stage to the front end and re-voicing the gain structure to provide an even wider range of sounds. The PolySaturator produces everything from subtle grit to blue velvet sustain inspired by our favorite tube amp lead channel.
The PolySaturator excels at gritty, edge-of-overdrive tones, but crank up the gain and you will be assaulted by face-melting ultra-high-gain sounds that will please shredders and shoegazers alike with impressive string to string clarity and F.A.T. tube sound. Our JRC4558D powered EQ circuits provide 12 db / octave active filtering over three distinct audio bands. This powerful EQ structure combined with a state-of-the-art approach to tube emulation, allows the musician to dial up wildly diverse and satisfying textures of analog distortion. Unprecedented touch sensitivity and overall range of distortion tones is achieved through multiple gain stages, and active EQ, perfectly balanced to give the musician enhanced control and expression using picking dynamics alone.
The PolySaturator guitar pedal presents a flexible and affordable alternative that will outperform any other boutique or mass production distortion effect available.

What a great pedal. This little stompbox covers a very wide range of tones, from subtle clean boost all the way to maxed out high-gain Marshall-like tones. The +/- 12 db eq for lo, mid, and hi are extremely dynamic and that makes it easy to dial in whatever tone you need. The gain and volume controls allow you to find every distortion sound you might need, whether its classic rock or new-metal crunch. The small size allows it to be placed anywhere on my pedalboard and it can use any voltage from 9-15V (try using different voltages for even more varieties of tone). When I got my first Polysaturator there was something wrong. There was a lot of noise and buzz in the unit. I emailed Pigtronix and whithin a day I was shipping it back to get replaced free of charge. They were extremely helpful and quick to respond to my email. The new unit worked perfectly (still does) and is whisper quiet, even with the gain maxed out. It even works really well with other instruments!
