The new pedal also utilizes the company’s Constant Headroom Technology, which is a circuit that provides extra headroom by producing 18-volts from a single 9-volt battery or external power source.
The M87 is housed in a lightweight-aluminum chassis and features true bypass. The pedal will be available this month with a street price of $189.99. For more info, visit the Jim Dunlop website.
