TME is thrilled to offer the new 29 Pedals FLWR Overdrive! We're totally in love with Jesse Honig's creations, and it's no surprise this incredibly designed offering is as good as it is. Unique and compact form factor followed by a simple layout that is deceptively versatile and packed with tone, the FLWR redefines what a utility drive pedal is capable of.
Jesse breaks down his new circuit below:
FLWR is, I guess, an overdrive! It makes gain, about 45dB, and can get up into fuzz territory at max settings. It’s designed to help you find your own breakup point, where pushing with the guitar breaks up nice and amp-y, but pulling back cleans up. The “SHAPE” controls affect the first gain stage, while the “GAIN” control affects the second gain stage. The clipping diodes are a modular sub-assembly, you can experiment and find your own magic arrangement. FLWR has a medium input impedance, so plugging right in will be a little warmer than when FLWR is following an input driver like EUNA. The output impedance is slightly higher to allow for interactions with other pedals. The WHATEVER power port accepts 7.5 to 35 volts of AC or DC in either polarity. FLWR is True-Bypass when switched off.
GAIN The gain control is non-linear, so as you add gain it gets warmer. Controls the 2nd gain stage.
LEVEL An output fader for controlling the 45dB of gain!
SHAPE The shape controls sculpt the first gain stage. The numbers select max gain, the letters adjust the gain applied.
- 3 is minimum total gain
- 2 is maximum total gain
- 1 is same gain as 2, but significantly low-passed
- C is the brightest gain, medium gain
- B is the flattest gain, low gain
- A is the most shaped gain, high gain
CLIP Selects from the clipping diode module. 1st or 2nd pair, or 0 for no clipping diodes.
