One Control BJF Series Pedals One Control has introduced four new pedals as part of its BJF Series effects. The Cranberry Overdrive and Lingonberry Overdrive inherit the characteristics of the original Strawberry Overdrive. In addition, a low cut trimpot has been installed and both pedals have been tuned in order to achieve specific overdrive tones. The Cranberry Overdrive offers a clean and crisp light distortion; in contrast, the Lingonberry’s lower-end frequencies are more predominant, creating a stronger bottom-end distortion. The Dimension Blue Monger blurs the lines between the flanger effect and chorus effect. It allows guitarists to create a “watery” three-dimensional modulation effect. The Complexity knob adjusts the modulation speed and depth while the Colour knob adjusts the overall brightness of the tone. The Mix knob allows adjustments to be made to the effects’ overall wet/dry balance. Finally, the Golden Acorn Overdrive was designed to reproduce the overdrive and dynamic range of Dumble amplifiers.
