Tijuana, B.C., México (March 7, 2018) -- Here comes a new challenger! Paradox unveils a pedal crafted from the legendary V4 amplifier. The Terran is far from your conventional overdrive and is designed with versatility in mind.

The Terran is a mid/high-gain overdrive with a parametric equalizer inspired by the legendary Ampeg V4. Using an active midrange filter to re-voice your tone, open a wide range of sonic possibilities emulating different types of guitar pick-ups, or different tube amp voices taking you to an ocean of textures.

The Terran highlights include:

  • Active Midrange filter (up to 15db).
  • Resonance control (Q).
  • Selectable bandwidth (700 Hz, 1 kHz, 1.5 kHz).
  • Fine tune with passive Bass and Treble EQ.
  • Germanium Diode Clipping.
  • Unique tone stack inspired by the Ampeg V4.

Handmade by non-replicant individuals in the border town of Tijuana. The Terran starts shipping March 2018, with a street price of $170.00, available at selected dealers or at www.paradoxeffects.com
