“Immaculate gain and boost sounds from a pedal with adjustments that allow the two channels to work perfectly together in a live set-up”

NRG PURRER - Dual Gain Channel Overdrive

Natural, versatile and wide ranging overdrive pedal with dual footswitchable gain channels.

Lovingly and meticulously designed, handmade, hand-wired and hand-painted by Neil R. Grimes in Eastbourne, England, using all premium quality components.

"Happy Cat / Angry Cat" hand-painted graphics with LED eyes for PURR (gain) channel indication.

Robust and trustworthy mechanical true bypass switching with the newly designed NRG switching circuit to significantly reduce any pops and thumps that can occur when engaging high gain pedals.

Standard 9VDC (centre negative) power supply operation, drawing less that 30mA.

Optional internal 9V PP3 battery operation is available as a custom addition

(Select this custom addition from the drop down menu when ordering).

Battery is disconnected when cable is removed from input socket or power supply plug is inserted into 9VDC power socket.

External channel switching capability is now available as a custom addition

(Select this custom addition from the drop down menu when ordering).

The extra socket on the top edge and additional internal circuitry allows the function of the right hand channel change footswitch to be triggered from an external switch (by latching the tip to ring of the standard mono 1/4" jack cable). This means you can select the PURR gain channel and save within patches/presets on pedalboard switching systems with control/aux switching outputs. Please enquire if you are unsure if your pedalboard switching system will support this feature.

LOUD = Master output volume

BITE = Treble / presence

MILK = Fatness / bass content of drive 

PURR = Gain 1 / Happy Cat drive

PURR = Gain 2 / Angry Cat drive

SOFT = Switch down for softened attack and frequency response - Two way toggle switch

LEAP = Variable control of output level/boost/cut when red PURR gain channel is engaged.

Ranging from dynamic and transparent low gain tones, to full, open and smooth medium gain drive. Your tone and EQ is consistent at all gain settings, with your guitar and amp's natural qualities and response always clear and intact. Great balance and string definition at all settings.

Footswitch between your two PURR (gain) settings, either orange or red for two independent gain/drive levels. PURR channel is indicated by either orange or red cat's eyes being lit.

The variable LEAP control gives full control and fine tuning of the output level of the red PURR channel. This mini knob/potentiometer (replacing the 2-way toggle switch on older models) allows precise boost as well as cut on the red PURR channel.

Wide ranging and interactive controls allow you to shape your Purrfect drive tone, fine tuning to suit any instrument, pedal and amp setup.

BITE (treble) and MILK (fatness) controls can be used together to mould all kinds of original and classic tones. 

Pushing up the BITE will create crisper tones with more presence and attack. 

Pushing up the MILK will really fatten up the response and create more saturation at high gains. 

With both rolled back, the midrange is prominent for classic drive pedal response. Around the centre of their travel you get balanced warm and clear tones. 

With both the BITE and MILK controls up, you'll get big drive tones with enhanced low and high end response and more of a midrange scoop.

SOFT mode toggle switch gives an alternative feel and response, relaxing the attack and frequency curve pushing the drive.

Lots of volume on tap to give just the right mix, impact or push your amp really hard.

Every pedal is handmade and hand-painted meaning that each one is individual and will vary slightly cosmetically.

Comes in presentation tin with personalised hand-signed and hand-coloured information sheet.
