The Pete Cornish G-2™  has been hailed as the most original sounding distortion unit available to guitarists in the Rock Arena. It features a four stage overdriven discrete transistor Class A circuit with additional Germanium components that generate much warmer sounding harmonics than anything else on the market. Within the huge tone generated by this unit, the original guitar sound and dynamics are present creating a much more musical effect than any other distortion pedal. The G-2™ gives a higher level of overdrive for that classic cranked up Marshall sound found on most British rock records of the 70s (Led Zeppelin, Free, Bad Company etc.). The G-2™  with its warm Germanium qualities and higher gain starts at around the rhythmic crunch stage of the SS-3™  and continues through in controllable degrees to a rounded but dynamic lead.

The input to this unique device is our universally acclaimed High Impedance, Unity Gain, Class A, Buffer Preamp with it's superior RFI rejecting capability (to eliminate Radio Station interference) and Low Impedance output, allowing the use of extended cable runs from the G-2™  in bypass mode. The fixed High Impedance load presented to the Guitar allows the pickups to operate at their optimum, even when several effects units are connected after the G-2™.  The Unity Gain Buffer also prevents "Ghost Distortion" being audible in Bypass Mode. This effect unit gets the most benefit from being fed into a clean, full frequency response amplifier and I recommend that when you receive your pedal you connect it up without anything else in line, just Guitar/Pedal/Amp, and discover the way the controls interact, both with themselves and the guitar/amp controls. Then adding the rest of your effects, you may find that you need to make slight adjustments to these as they are now being fed with a constant signal when the G-2™  is in Active or Bypass Mode.

Details

  • RFI rejecting input and bypass buffer.
  • Each unit is hand built, wired and tested by Pete, Lynda and Mingus Cornish.
  • Housed in a Rugged Die-cast box with lined control knobs.
  • Heavy Duty Custom made all-metal footswitch with large cap and protection ring plus Hi-Brite LED.
  • Easy battery replacement via a removable ?drawer?. The battery is switched on when you insert the "IN/PWR ON" jack and to ensure long battery life unplug this lead when the unit is not in use. If the unit is not to be used for a long length of time, or to be adapter powered, we recommend that you remove the battery. Preferred battery type is MN1604. Also fitted is an input for a DC adapter: the size of the coax connector is 5.5/2.1mm and the centre pin is negative (-VE). The adapter should be noise free, fully stabilised at 9V DC and capable of supplying 20mA. When multiple effects pedals are to be powered, we recommend the use of the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus adapter as meeting the above criteria and cannot accept any liability for damage caused to this unit by the use of, or to, any other type of DC adaptor. If only a single unit is to be powered the BOSS PSA series may be more cost effective and is also recommended.
