  • BJFe LA Distortion (LAD)-The LA distortion has 54dB gain in vintage mode and 66dB gain in high gain mode. It is approximately as dense with a strat as it is with a Les Paul. What makes this design special is that it has a lot of unfiltered gain just like early distortion boxes. HG mode gives more contemporary filtering and higher gain. In spite of it’s heavy gain this is not a streamlined sound but it is dense and fat and vintage flavoured, giving a vocal sound similar to some fuzzes on the unwound strings but with tremendous sustain... it gives a huge distortion sound as used before 1980 on major stages and also since then for professional guitarists playing other music than shred. It is a classic distortion sound and much softer than modern high gain. This design is also very low noise considering the kind of gain it can produce.

    BJFe LA Distortion 5K is a pedal that creates a bright and thick distortion sound.
    A switch allows you to switch between Vintage/High Gain modes, but even Vintage mode can produce sufficiently high gain.
    Vintage mode produces a raw sound like early distortions, while High Gain mode gives a modern filtered "cleansed" sound.
    It has a high density and is characterized by a sound like the stage of the 80's. The edge is soft, so it is also suitable for lead play.
