Chase Bliss Brothers Audio Analog Gainstage – No Longer Available
The Chase Bliss Brothers Audio Analog Gainstage has two channels that each feature an overdrive and fuzz. Channel A has a JFET-based boost, and Channel B an IC-based boost. Both channels have a momentary engage/kill mode. From its six unique boost, drive, or fuzz circuits, the pedal can be routed in 33 distinct patterns, including mixing channels in parallel or changing the order of the effects.
As with every Chase Bliss pedal, you can save everything and recall presets instantly as you play, either on the pedal or with MIDI. Every knob and switch is connected to a little digital brain while your guitar signal stays 100% analog the entire time and never gets digitally processed.
The Chase Bliss Brothers was created out of the mutual respect between designers Joel Korte of Chase Bliss and Peter Bregman of Resonant Electronic Design. Peter was inspired to expand the reach and possibilities of circuits he’d designed for his various analog pedals by combining them into one digitally controlled pedal. As a fan of Chase Bliss for their passionate approach to parameter controllability, modulation, and spontaneous automation, he recognized Joel as one to help him realize his idea and make it even better than he imagined.
Joel agreed to the project when he took apart one of Peter’s pedals to look at the circuit design and loved what he saw. He embraced the fresh design challenge of truly complementing Peter’s original analog work and having it shine through in the pedal’s personality, making it a rule to add no extraneous effects just for their own sake.
Chase Bliss gear is created especially for tone-crazed players that desire a certain analog something in their tone while demanding the ability to tweak everything and recall settings at will.
I'll admit, I was skeptical about the announcement of this pedal. How many more drive pedals do we need?! A buddy of mine had gotten one first and was telling me how original it was. Nothing like other drives that were out there currently. He wasn't kidding. Channel A is a bit more saturated with a tight, percussive attack, while Channel B has a bit more sag, smoothness and transparency going on. I don't mean that as a buzzword either. You clean signal is always blended in underneath the dirty signal. This is especially awesome for bass. Amazing, swiss army knife of a pedal!
