Maestro Invader Distortion Guitar Effect Pedal
The Invader is a high-gain, all-analog modern distortion pedal with an aggressive, dominant sonic character and rich harmonics, generating
a wide range of distorted sounds. The 3-knob control layout offers intuitive control over Gain (distortion amount), Tone, and output Level, with
more than enough volume on tap to easily exceed unity gain when desired. Players can also engage a built-in noise gate with the top panel
toggle switch. An internal trim pot mounted on the circuit board inside the pedal allows adjustments to the level of the noise gate’s Threshold.
The true bypass footswitch triggers the LED lights in the bugles in the Maestro logo when it’s on, so you’ll always know when the effect is active.
Controls: Gain, Tone, Level; internal Noise Gate Threshold trim pot
Internal Trim Pot: An internal trim pot on the circuit board allows the user to
