Dusky Electronics Introduces the Toasted Pedal

Dusky Electronics Toasted PedalDusky Electronics has announced a new pedal called Toasted, which is an update to their Toasted Drive Pedal. The new stompbox has an expanded control range and a more pleasing distortion, the company states.

“Toasted does everything its ancestor could do, just better,” Dusky shared. “Eschewing opamps and clipping diodes, Toasted’s discrete, class-A circuitry consists of a pair of MOSFET gain stages cascaded one into the other, like tube gain stages in a guitar amplifier. Toasted’s dynamic low-to-medium gain range stacks well with other pedals and its substantial output volume allows it to push a tube amplifier over the edge.”

In addition to its “More,” “Heat,” and “Color” knobs, the Toasted has an internal MEAT switch that expands the pedal’s low-end range. Other features include the option for 18-volt operation, battery operation, and a high impedance input for flexible signal chain placement.

The Dusky Electronics Toasted is available for $180.
