Old Blood Noise Endeavors Fault V2
Dual gain overdrive with 3-band slider EQ.
The OBNE Fault V2 Overdrive/Distortion can push your amp over the edge, provide a sensitive drive for a clean signal or act as an all-out distortion. Gain 1 sets the intensity of the first gain stage and Fault can go from light and sparkly, to tight and crunchy.
The Low, Mid and High controls on the 3-band EQ each cut or boost their respective frequencies – scoop it, hump it, flatten it. Low is a 100 Hz shelf filter, Mid is 500 Hz bell and High is 3 kHz shelf. Jangly rhythms, fat leads or chords with just the right amount of mid-push to see you push through the mix.
Gain 2 is activated by the Gain 2 footswitch. If it’s off or if the knob is all the way down, it does nothing. But turn the switch on and the knob up and you’ll find increasingly heavy distortion in a pedal you thought was only an overdrive. Gain 2 is highly interactive with where you’ve set Gain 1, letting you conjure a myriad of delightfully driven and distorted sounds.
Add in the new controls – Voice (sets the overall tone of your drive heading into the 3 band EQ) and Boost (sets the range of Gain 1) and you get even more drive versatility. While the Crush control gives one final clipping stage right before the output. All of these options interact to form many different drive tones, from signal sweetening to aggressive distortion. Different levels of each will create different sounds, which when tweaked with the EQ can be further shaped.
