Black Gold Distortion

Fuzz with a lot of Sustain .

and uses the OP07 or LM308 integrated circuit just like the old 80s and 90s version of the mentioned
pedal. Although it is worth clarifying that the SABBADIUS Black Gold is not a copy of
the RAT since they have some modifications made in the tone and Distortion control, thus
making this pedal even mo re versatile.

one of the main versatile characteristics of this pedal. From Min. To Max . You go through a lot

most screeching and glassy tones that mixing with the DRIVE knob you can obtain incredible
