Not just any distortion, the Aries can be used as a boost, overdrive or distortion and with its three band EQ, this pedal gives you complete control of your dirt pedal needs.

The Aries Beast Distortion's circuit is configured by stacking two gain stages in cascade (or in series) mode. The first opamp gain stage (GAIN) does not utilize clipping diodes. It's fuller and more open sounding. The second opamp gain stage (DRIVE) incorporates asymmetrical MOSFET clipping diodes and is tighter and more compressed. Mixing the two results in many sonic combinations of true dirt pedal bliss.

But we didn't stop there. We then fed the gain stages into a three band EQ, giving the user total control over the frequency response of the musical signal and finished the chain off with an FET gain stage. This FET gain stage corrects the attenuation (volume loss) from the EQ circuit and adds a tube like warmth to the effect.

Once you play through the Aries Beast Distortion you will fall in love with its versatility.

The Aries Beast Distortion can easily accomodate all styles of music.

The Aries Beast Distortion is a true bypass pedal and uses no buffers in its design.

There is very little noise filtering in the circuit which allows your guitar's entire signal to come through. The Aries Beast Distortion is extremely touch sensitive and responds beautifully to every nuance of your guitar playing.

Built like a tank using the best components available - including an all metal durable coated enclosure, CTS pots and Switchcraft jacks. Totally hand built, this pedal will keep you rocking for many years to come.

Celestial Effects recommends the use of a HIGH QUALITY 9 VDC regulated power adapter with the Aries Beast Distortion pedal like the Carl Martin Powerjack 9VDC power supply or similar. This power supply is capable of providing 1000 mA of power and is noise free. The more the capacity of the power supply, the less chance of noise and hum due to a power supply being pushed to its current capability limits.
