The Falcon Heavy Drive is a two-channel boost and overdrive built around the sound of one individually biased-JFET slamming into another. Sonically it covers territory from preamp-style subtle coloration to hard-clipped meltdown scuzzy drive. High input impedance and low output impedance preserve signal level and treble response, making it a great first or last pedal in a signal chain.
It features two additional clipping options beyond the JFETs, a low shelf tone control to tighten bass frequencies (useful paired with compressed/dirty amps), a mid notch filter assignable to any combination of the two channels, and a touch of volume boost on channel two.
The Falcon Heavy Drive is designed to work equally well on guitar and bass.

I – Input
O – Output
Power jack – 9V DC center negative (standard Boss/Ibanez type) (Falcon Heavy Drive requires a power supply; it does not have a battery snap)
D – Drive. Turn clockwise for more boost / saturation / clipping
C – Clipping toggle. Selects among JFET boost (no diodes), drive (asymmetric Germanium/Silicon diode soft clipping), and scuzz (asymmetric Schottky diode hard clipping) modes
T – Tone. Fully counter-clockwise is the neutral, flat position; turn clockwise to shelve low frequencies
V – Volume
— 1 2 B – Mid notch toggle. Assigns a 5 dB cut at 1215 Hz to neither channel (“–“), channel one, channel 2, or both channels
D2 – Drive 2. Turn clockwise for more boost / saturation / clipping. When its footswitch is activated the D2 control effectively replaces the D control
