Superb!
Bill Joseph, 17.03.2019
With so many overdrive pedals of this type now available, it is not so easy to find the right one.
Having listened to many demos I decided to try this Golden Acorn half expecting to have to send it back.
It is nothing short of amazing!
I had previously been using a Zendrive but could never quite find that "sweet spot" as there seemed to be too many conflicting middle frequencies at work.
This One Control Golden Acorn is laid out so simply and that is its' strength.The sound it produces is so perfect that all that is required is to just add less or more treble/sustain.
It is also incredibly responsive to your playing, regardless of which type of guitar is used.
Bearing in mind that 90% of all tone is produced by the fingers, players looking for a sound reminiscent of Robben Ford, Larry Carlton and even Carlos Santana will definitely find it here.

Slimline, practical and beautifully finished, it is perfect on the board, runs on 9 volt and unlike many other new pedals, the LED light is not blindingly bright when turned on!

Bjorn Juhl must be some kind of genius.
This Golden Acorn is absolutely superb and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an overdrive of this particular type to bring Solos out of the mix and put a little hair on them.

Many Thanks again to Musikhaus Thomann for their incredible service.
This pedal arrived two days after the order! Wow!

A classic Ibanez Tubescreamer or Colorsound Tonebender can fetch many times its original price from guitarists in search of the ultimate killer tone and sustain.
