Caroline Icarus V2 Clean Boost
Three knobs and the truth! This preamp is useful and plenty loud, so don't be surprised to run it lower than you might with other light drives or boosts. A little goes a long way. GAIN is how much boost is applied to your input signal: All the way off is just the signal from your instrument, turning up will clip the diodes nicely. HIGHS is the amount of frequency content. It interacts with the OUTPUT knob, which controls the output volume. With GAIN all the way off, OUTPUT can still give you up to +12db of boost, so with those other controls up, you may want to keep it down. Horses for courses, they say. The slide switch on the inside will convert this pedal between buffered and true bypass. The buffer can help maintain signal integrity for longer signal runs.
