Vick Audio Announces the Mount Pleasant

A versatile low-to-medium gain overdrive with a high-cut switch.

Gilbert, AZ (August 24, 2017) -- Vick Audio, a company that specializes in reproductions of out of production and original guitar effects is excited to announce the latest member of its lineup the Mount Pleasant overdrive.

Vick Audio’s newest addition to its effects pedal lineup the Mount Pleasant is a versatile low to medium gain overdrive that is perfect for blues, rock and a variety of other applications.

The Mount Pleasant was designed to give warm overdriven tones with great frequency response without over whelming or oversaturating your existing tone. If you are looking for a heavily distorted and highly saturated sound this is not the right pedal for you. If you want a natural tube-like overdrive while maintaining touch response and your rigs natural dynamics the Mount Pleasant should be an excellent fit.

With the exception of the high cut toggle switch the Mount Pleasant has your standard volume, gain and tone controls. The tone stack has a balanced response but a high cut switch has been added to give additional options. The NC (No Cut) option is the standard recommendation but you can reduce highs, add warmth and increased low-end response with the High Cut 1 (HC1) and High Cut 2 (HC 2) settings.

The Mount Pleasant is particularly responsive to pickup selection giving warm full tones towards the neck and bright singing tones when you switch towards the bridge.

The Mount Pleasant is retailing at $129

Gain is fun in all its forms, from overdrive to fuzz, but let’s talk about a great clean tone.

We’re all here for one thing. It’s the singular sound and magic of the stringed instrument called the guitar—and its various offshoots, including the bass. Okay, so maybe it’s more than one thing, but the sentiment remains. Even as I write this, my thoughts fan out and recognize how many incarnations of “guitar” there must be. It’s almost incomprehensible. Gut-string, nylon-string, steel-string, 12-string, 8-string, 10-string, flatwound, brown sound, fuzztone…. It’s almost impossible to catalog completely, so I’ll stop here and let you add your favorites. Still, there’s one thing that I keep coming back to: clean tone.
