The classical Golden Era Lo-Fi machine comes now in a very limited edition (5 pcs.) to celebrate the end of the year 2023, the year where we sadly had to discontinue the pedal because of the lack of vintage parts and the product industralization not compatible anymore with the market demand. A very fine golden satin painting has been used for the finish and the brown black printing to achieve the "reversed" aesthetic of the pedal. The electronics uses the classical Printed Circuit Boards Rev.A3 but with some important upgrades: we replaced the modern BC549 transistors with a prime selection of BC114 vintage New Old Stock transistors. In addition, special selection also for BBD MN3207, a enhanced NOISE generator and Wima polyester input capacitor. Each minimal sound feature of the pedal has been finely calibrated and adjusted to achieve the best performances ever from a Golden Era machine.
Like the standard model, the Golden Era pedal morphs sound into a bygone era; an era of analogue recording, where unintentional peculiarities and imperfect machines created mesmerising, unique sound palettes. Every audio recorder had some peculiarities that marked an era: from the "mechanical" response full of noise and scratch of the first phonographs, to the low bandwidth available and with a nasal and floating voice of Compact Cassettes, especially if recorded / listened by cheap or worn devices. Golden Era was created to faithfully reproduce the "non fidelity" of these audio recorders at the time of their introduction, taking you to other eras of analog audio recording: the Golden Eras. The Golden Era Reverse will turn any sound coming from a guitar, synthesizer or modern recording in a analog-voiced record. Press the footswitch and enjoy your journey through the ages.
