THE DANE MKII is the updated signature pedal of Peter “DANISH PETE” Honoré. THE DANE is put simply a tonal tool to allow Pete to achieve his signature articulate driven and boosted clean sounds from one flexible box. The use of this pedal will now allow you vast flexibility over your guitar tone and enhance and improve your sound.
OVERVIEW: THE DANE is a creation designed to meet the exacting needs of Danish Pete, However due to the design brief needing to cover the wide palette of sounds he uses, the pedal finished up being the most versatile pedal available on the market for such a clean design. THE DANE has two sides; a complex light to medium gain overdrive on the left and a high headroom super clean boost on the right. The pedal is designed so that the boost runs into the drive side. This yields three distinct tonal variations ranging from clean boost all the way through to full and fat saturation. The pedal is also designed to clean up impeccably from your volume control and as such it is ideal for dynamic players who like to adjust their playing style.
LEVEL: Use this control to increase the volume output of the drive side of pedal.
GAIN: This control is used to increase the level of drive available on the drive side of the pedal, everything from lightly crispy through to heavier sounds is available here.
TONE: This control gives you massive amounts of control over the treble and bass response of the drive. Counter clockwise yields smoother sounds whilst clockwise yields brighter sounds.
BOOST: This control gives you massive amounts of control add high headroom clean boost to your signal, use it on its own as part of the boost side of the pedal or when stacked into the drive it can really make the pedal sing with complex harmonics and layered overdrive.
LOWS: This control gives you massive amounts of control to add low end to the boost side of the pedal. The amount of low end on tap is fantastic for fattening up even the spankiest strat bridge pickup.
HC/DP: Toggle switch to allow you to choose between Heavier Clipping (like that on the left side of the Heavy Water) and the original Danish Pete Dane boost mode.
LEFT FOOTSWITCH: This turns the drive side on/off.
RIGHT FOOTSWITCH: This turns the boost side on/off.
POWER: THE DANE is designed to work at voltages of 9V DC. This should be from a quality centre negative power supply such as the Gigrig Generator or Voodoo Lab Pedalpower Plus 2. Do not attempt to use this pedal with other voltages or polarities.
COMPONENTS: To ensure consistency, reliability, low noise and tonal supremacy the DANE is made with ex- tremely high quality components. 1% metalfilm resistors, WIMA and Panasonic capacitors where possible, A Burr-Brown Op-amp and robust through hole plated PCB’S. In short, all of this means you won’t have to worry about your pedal and it should give you many years of inspiring tonal bliss.
