Description

Controls

Big Knob: The big knob sets the output level, sometimes known as Volume. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! The Acapulco Gold is extremely loud!

Measures

4.75″ x 2.50″ x. 2.25″ with knob

Switching

This device is true bypass and uses electronic relay-based switching. Audio will not pass
without power.

Power

This device can be powered by a 9v battery or a standard 9-volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. DO NOT RUN AT HIGHER VOLTAGES!

Current Draw: 18mA

Input Impedance: 50K Ohm

Output Impedance:

Power Amp Distortion

Welcome to your new Acapulco Gold™ Power Amp Distortion! The Acapulco Gold is a dirt-simple distortion Device modeled after the sound of a cranked vintage Model T amplifier, bringing the openness, clarity, and crunch that only a dimed tube amp can provide, at a fraction of the size, and without expensive maintenance costs!

Since tone is in the hands, we decided to keep the controls of the Acapulco Gold as simple as possible. The footswitch turns the pedal on and off, and the giant knob controls the output volume. That’s it. The rest is at your fingertips. Want less gain? Turn down your guitar’s volume knob. Need a darker rhythm tone? Roll back your guitar’s tone control. Easy, right?

With your guitar’s volume all the way up, the Acapulco Gold roars like a wide-open Model T on the verge of explosion. At just-barely-backed-off, the Gold becomes a raunchy overdrive. At minimum guitar volume settings, the Acapulco Gold delivers a hazy, Nashville-sounding spank to your tone.

How about this? If your guitar has separate volume and tone controls for each pickup and a three-way selector switch, this little one-knob banger becomes a three-channel tone monster at the flick of your wrist!

Each Acapulco Gold is made part-by-part, wire-by-wire, giant knob-by-giant knob with real, live humanimal hands in our gilded manufactory located in gray olde Akron, Ohio USA.
