A small tube amp channel but with muscle and versatility.
Turn on the Jour de FET and you'll get a distortion feast! From clean sound to way too much saturation, from British to US voicing, a large choice of saturations is available with this pedal.
Listen to a Zorg Effects distortions pedals comparison here.
First, the jour de FET uses FET transistors to produce the distortion. FET transistors are known
to mimic pretty well the response of a tube, producing distortion more pleasing to the ear
with cool response to attacks and good dynamics.
Then, a switch allows to choose the number of stages of distortion. With two stages the pedal produces warm clean tones up to very dynamic crunches. With three stages the sound becomes a bit more compressed and a very very very high level of saturation can be obtained.
Last but not least, two internal controls allows to radically change the voicing of the pedal: A dip switch allows to switch between 4 different voicing: the first is bright and "British", the second cut some high mid and is a bit dark for a more "US" tone, the third cuts even more the high mids, and the fourth boosts the mids for a more 70's like sound. Then the balance between bass and trebles can be set with a trimpot.
