Heavy claims that this discrete engineered pedal loves to find the odd frequencies and push them to the forefront. Gain knob not only delivers overdrive but increases interactivity between frequencies, sometimes allowing notes to oscillate between each-other. Radio Havana uses ceramic capacitors amongst other techniques to accentuate grit and overall signal degradation. The Voltage Starve circuit, found within all of the Heavy Electronics Series One pedals, allows the user to adjust the voltage all the way down to .1 Volts. In application with the Radio Havana the Voltage Starve circuit accentuates the core function of the pedal as a whole. Perfect for breakdowns, and really makes things interesting for bass and baritone guitars.
Heavy Electronic’s Radio Havana Lo-Fi Pedal costs $135 beans and is available now. More information on the Heavy Electronics Radio Havana Lo-Fi Pedal.
