Seymour Duncan Unveils the Palladium Gain Stage Pedal


Santa Barbara, CA (March 16, 2016) -- Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups and pedals, announces the release of the Palladium Gain Stage effects pedal. Palladium is the first pedal to authentically replicate a high-gain tube amp, allowing for the extra dimensionality that is missing in effects pedals today.

Palladium features three gain stages: a gain stage to control the overall saturation, a resonance control for low frequency gain shaping and a boost control that adds overdrive to the beginning of the signal path. These three gain stages allow for a versatile range of tones, from classic rock at lower settings to modern metal at higher gain settings. The pedal also offers a comprehensive EQ, with bass, treble, presence and sweepable midrange-frequency control, so you can make Palladium sound perfect with any amp.

“We are very excited about Palladium,” said Max Gutnik, SVP of products and CRO. “We wanted to create a pedal that brings the richness, depth and versatility of a superior high gain tube amp, without the tonal compromises that typically go with distortion pedals. We believe guitarists will love the complement of sounds they can get from Palladium.”


  • True Bypass
  • 3 band EQ with sweepable mids
  • 3 gain stages that offer 110 db of total gain
