The Narwhal Industries Cardigan was built just blocks from our shop by Tim @ Full Custom Music Repair. The circuit yields plentry of headroom, and a very smooth clipping effect that helps to warm up even the harshest of guitar outputs. It works well has a boost, or at full saturation. This 12AX7 preamp-style pedal provides an extra level of complexity without taking away what you already love about your sound.
From Narwhal Industries:
Cardigan is our platform for building small format tube preamps. The Cardigan is the same size as some of our other pedals and will run on any center tip negative 9~12 Volt supply that can supply at least 400mA. Despite these limitations the audio circuit is supplied with 100 Volts that is made by the pedal's internal DC to DC converter.
