Black Dog - Pure Vintage HiWatt Style Tone


The Black Dog is a pure amp over-drive that offers some really authentic tones guaranteed to satisfy your desires. Not only will it provide the right amount of gain to lift your tones to the next level, but it also has a great passive three band equalizer to sculpt your tone!

Jimmy Page did not use distortion to mask his mistakes. He was all about tone. This circuit is an all Mosfet Stage circuit designed to emulate that sound based on their later albums.

Clean, powerful and true.
