Description

Vintage King is proud to offer a new and improved version of the groundbreaking Howie pedal from Menatone. We are long time fans of the original Howie pedal introduced in 1999 and the subsequent iterations that followed it. We talked Brian Mena into creating a souped-up version based on the original design.

The VK Edition Howie pedal starts with an original concept but has a lot more up its sleeve. The Howie was originally based on the elusive work of a master amp designer/builder based in California who was famous his "clean" gain, touch sensitivity, and incredibly expensive prices. Mena borrowed 5 of these amps from different eras and began to discern what he liked and disliked about each one.

 

VK Edition Upgraded Parts

  • 1/2 watt carbon resistors
  • High voltage rolled polyester and silver mica caps
  • Audio grade elecrolytics
  • Full sized CTS pots
  • Silver plated, teflon coated wire

 

Plus - a charged pump power supply tripling the voltage internally for more headroom and unsurpassed dynamic range.

 

One and a half channel amp

Think of the Menatone VK Edition Howie as a one and a half channel amp. The GAIN, TREBLE, MID, BASS, PRESENCE and MASTER are always active. The Overdrive process is engaged by the drive foot-switch. Its controls are LEVEL and RATIO in the drive section. The LEVEL adjusts the amount of signal introduced into the Overdrive Process and determines the character of compression and distortion dynamics. The RATIO sets the overall boost of the Overdrive process.

The Clean section will take you from a beautifully, sparkly clean to an edge of breakup American grit. The Drive section will guide you from a simple lead-boost to unprecedented amounts of compression and sustain.

Dimensions: 4 3/4" x 5 3/4" x 2 1/2"
