The Philosopher's Rock can be used to tame peaks in your signal as well as create natural acoustic feedback with or without distortion. Super low noise performance allows the Philosopher's Rock to be effective in front of an amp of combined with high gain distortion and fuzz pedals for creating various sounds.

Preset treble and blend functions are featured that allow for hassle free operation on stage or in the studio. The Philosopher's Rock features true bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt (negative tip) power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior headroom, clarity and overall output.
