Join us in welcoming our newest pedal lineup for 2021 - Hudson Electronics! This UK-based pedal company has been making some of the most unique and toneful overdrives and boosts on the market, capturing the feel and vibe of classic UK preamps and consoles from the 1960s and squeezing them into pedalboard-friendly boxes. A few of us have been rocking Hudson pedals on our own pedalboards for years, so it's exciting to bring another beloved lineup into the shop!
Here's what Hudson says about their modern classic Broadcast Dual...
The Broadcast is a transformer coupled, discrete Class-A germanium pre-amplifier based on the classic broadcast consoles of the 1960s. In the low-gain setting, the Broadcast can cover everything from sparkling clean boost through to transparent overdrive, all with a healthy dose of volume available to push your amp.
The Broadcast features a specially selected Triad steel-core transformer and a Germanium transistor. Advancing the gain on the Broadcast starts to saturate the transformer and the pedal’s discrete circuitry, giving rise to a gentle and dynamic compression coupled with subtle thickening of the mid-range.
With the gain switch in the high setting and the trim control wound up, the Broadcast starts to deliver heavier distorted sounds with a warm and fuzzy edge to them. The Broadcast covers a wide range of driven and distorted tones whilst remaining dynamic, responding well to pick attack and the subtle nuances of every player.
