EffectsNew Plum Crazy Squawk

The Squawk-a true overdrive-a rock and blues machine. It runs the range from slight grit to near fuzz, all the while retaining the character of your guitar and amp. Based on a classic germanium boost circuit, The Squawk offers so much more. The Squawk fattens and boosts your guitar signal, pushing your amp in to a real tube overdrive. It’s also very touch-sensitive-pick hard for more grit or pick softly for a cleaner response.

The original vintage circuit was limited to boosting treble frequencies. The Squawk offers these sounds as well as a wide variety of others via a 6-position Freq control. The Freq control provides the ultimate in customizing your sound- choose bassier settings for fattening single coils or treble settings for adding sustain and chime to humbuckers. If this weren’t enough, there’s even a germanium / silicon switch for choosing between a vintage germanium sound or a slightly tighter silicon punch.
