In January 1970 Led Zeppelin hit the stage of London’s historic concert hall, Royal Albert Hall. At this performance Jimmy Page expressed himself masterfully with a broad pallet of tones and GIANT dynamic range. Of course this has a lot to do with Page's playing technique and Gibson™ Les Paul™. His backline amps, custom Hiwatt heads into Marshall cabinets filled the entire hall with a cornucopia of colors at levels ranging from a mouse whisper to rave ups louder than a jumbo jet taking off only inches over your head.
The RAH is designed to give you an incredible dynamic range that responds to your picking technique AND your guitar’'s controls. Like a good non-master volume tube amp the RAH is very uncompressed, retaining an open feel, which means there is little to "hide behind". This pedal is for players who appreciate the rewards and experience of a WIDE dynamic response. Plug the RAH into a tube amp set clean(ish) and neutral tone-wise (more on this later), leave the pedal on, and go from quiet, delicate passages to full on saturated, singing, crunch with a \035ick of your guitar's volume knob! You can go from whispering blues to full on ri overload just by using your guitar's controls and leaving RAH on the entire time (this is very remarkable for a guitar pedal). It responds to your playing - play soft and get a delicate response or really dig in to bring it on home with a very authentic cranked-amp overdrive
This pedal was designed to give you the response of Jimmy Page's custom Hiwatt heads in pedal form. It is voiced to give you the correct GAIN levels and DYNAMIC RESPONSE as the amp.
First, you will notice three tone controls, Treble, Middle, and Bass. These three tone controls reproduce the circuitry from Page's Hiwatt exactly down to the component value. They, like most tone circuits used in guitar amps, are highly interactive, meaning that adjusting one control will affect the behavior of the others. They'll talk about the tone controls more later, but the important point is that they reproduce the actual circuitry from Page's Hiwatts.
It's gain levels are perfect for using a humbucker equipped guitar to get Page's sound from the Royal Albert Hall show. But, don’t think this pedal is only for playing Zep covers - in fact, they hope you'll be inspired by its tone and response to write your own epic riffs!
