Product Description :
- By popular demand the Wingman v2.0 now features a TRS split function to use with pedal looper systems like the GigRig etc. The TRS split is enabled via three internal dip switches.
Our inspiration for this pedal came from demand from fans of our No.1 overdrive requesting a dual version of that pedal. They loved how very versatile the pedal is, as either a clean boost or as a mid pushed medium gain overdrive. It made sense to offer it in a dual version allowing the full potential of the circuit to shine through. Wingman is a military aviation term of “the plane flying beside and slightly behind the lead plane in an aircraft formation”. This is how we came to the name of Wingman, as the two circuits can be used seperately or stacked together
Staying true to the original we’ve kept the buffer, but added switching options for tweaking and also changed all internal op amps supply voltage to +/- 9 Volt for better signal handling, when stacking the two sides.
The Wingman overdrive is divided into a side A (left) and a side B (right), separated by an order toggle switch in the middle which flips the internal order of the effects and hence the signal path from guitar to amp.
Features (both sides):
– K-style circuit
– Internal supply voltage boosted to 18 Volt for increased headroom in all gain stages.
– External Ratio toggle switch for switching between standard and low gain, enabling you to more precisely dial in your desired low gain setting.
– Two Internal dip switches for extending the low frequency response, one for low frequency response in the overdrive gain stage and one in the clean signal path.
-External switch to choose which order the signal passes through the two circuits.
The wingman overdrive is built using carefully selected top shelf components::
– VISHAY 1% metalfilm resistors
– WIMA MKP10, MKS4 and FKP2 film capacitors – no electrolytes in the audio circuit.
– VIMEX sealed potentiometers

– TAIWAY toggle switches
– PURE TONE MULTI-CONTACT 1/4″ JACK
– Silver plated teflon insulated cable for internal wiring.
– US made DAVIES MOULDING 1470 knobs
– NOS OA91 germanium diodes
– Dimension: 5.72 in x 4.77 in x 1.39 in (145 mm x 121 mm x 35 mm)
