BLACK CAT OD-1
(2 STAGE OVERDRIVE, FUZZ PEDAL)
Congratulations on your purchase of the BLACK CAT OD-1 pedal. To insure your
complete satisfaction with the unit we will describe its features and briefly
outline the two different operation modes.
With the pedal facing you, that is with the footswitch closer to you the
features are as follows.
INPUT JACK: On right side, plugging a 1/4" jack into the input provides input
signal and turns 9 volt battery on.
OUTPUT JACK: On left side of pedal plugging in a 1/4" jack carries output from
OD-1 to amp or other signal processing unit.
2.lmm POWER JACK: Located on rear of OD-1 a 2.lmm "BOSS STYLE" power jack
allows operation of unit with external power source. A 9VDC adapter is
preferred but a 12VDC unit may be used. Please note that the 12VDC unit will
give more output.
FOOTSWITCH: The footswitch is mounted on top of the unit. Stepping on the
switch will change the true by-pass footswitch from by-pass to effect engaged
This control controls the overall output of the unit.
This knob controls the amount of signal that passes through
from the lst stage amplifier to the 2nd stage amplifier. The more signal that
passes from stage to stage the more distorted the sound at the output.
MODES OF OPERATION:
OVERDRIVE: To operate in OVERDRIVE MODE, the VOLUME CONTROL should be set at
12 oclock or greater and the DISTORTION CONTROL should be set around 9 oclock.
This setting will give a clean output signal that is boosted in volume that
will overdrive the input stages of your guitar amp. For a greater boost turn up
the volume control but be carefull not to get it too loud!
FUZZ: To get a screaming FUZZ sound, turn the DISTORTION CONTROL to about 3
oclock. Then start with the VOLUME CONTROL turned all the way down and turn it
up until you reach the desired level of FUZZ.
