After spending a few days with my new Kursk, I must say I am very impressed...! Low to med + gain overdrive, works well with single coils and humbuckers. Has a warm tone, never too bright or shrill sounding, very harmonic. Have been able to dial in some really good blues and classic rock sounds with my Strats, Teles and PRS. Through amps running both 6L6 tubes and EL-84s. One thing I have noticed is the volume and gain are quiet sensitive, work hand in hand togeather, and need to be adjusted as so. A slight adjustment of gain will effect your volume / output. Very impressed with the build quality, fast shipping and the hands on customer service from Mason. I've tried a lot of overdrive pedals looking for that perfect tone and drive combination, I think I found it in my new Kursk ! : )
This is our take on a certain iconic, unobtanium overdrive. Are you having visions of prancing centaurs on the Siberian steppe yet?
Kursk retains all the mojo of the classic circuit she draws inspiration from yet sports an improved tone stack and active volume boost that delivers improved performance and versatility.
Twist the gain knob fully counter-clockwise and the drive section is completely bypassed; you have a powerful transparent boost on tap.
Twist the gain knob fully clockwise and you have the iconic centaur-based overdrive you love and expect.
The equipped active Baxandall tone stack is simple yet powerful; tweak the Bass and Treble controls to dial in YOUR tone.
Kursk also features an active Baxandall volume boost (level knob) on the tail end of the signal chain, equipping you with just the right amount of volume to drive your amp or other effects with ease.
Our compact enclosure features top mounted jacks that displace as much horizontal board space as a mini-pedal equipped with side jacks.
