The PETE CORNISH G-2™ has been hailed as the most original sounding distortion unit available to guitarists in the Rock Arena. It features a four stage overdriven discrete transistor Class A circuit with additional Germanium components that generate much warmer sounding harmonics than anything else on the market. Within the huge tone generated by this unit, the original guitar sound and dynamics are present creating a much more musical effect than any other distortion pedal.
The G-2™ gives a higher level of overdrive for that classic cranked up Marshall sound found on most British rock records of the 70s Led Zeppelin, Free, Bad Company etc. The G-2™ with its warm Germanium qualities and higher gain starts at around the rhythmic crunch stage of the SS-3™ and continues through in controllable degrees to a rounded but dynamic lead.
The input to this unique device is our universally acclaimed High Impedance, Unity Gain, Class A, Buffer Preamp with its superior RFI rejecting capability to eliminate Radio Station interference and Low Impedance output, allowing the use of extended cable runs from the G-2™ in bypass mode. The fixed High Impedance load presented to the Guitar allows the pickups to operate at their optimum, even when several effects units are connected after the G-2™. The Unity Gain Buffer also prevents Ghost Distortion being audible in Bypass Mode. This effect unit gets the most benefit from being fed into a clean, full frequency response amplifier and I recommend that when you receive your pedal you connect it up without anything else in line, just Guitar/Pedal/Amp, and discover the way the controls interact, both with themselves and the guitar/amp controls. Then adding the rest of your effects, you may find that you need to make slight adjustments to these as they are now being fed with a constant signal when the G-2™ is in Bypass Mode.

Each unit is hand built, wired and tested by Pete and Lynda Cornish.
Housed in a Rugged Die-cast box with Chicken-Head pointer knobs.
Heavy Duty all-metal footswitch with Hi-Brite, low power consumption LED.
Easy battery replacement via the drawer. The battery is switched on when you insert the IN/PWR jack and to ensure long battery life unplug this lead when the unit is not in use. If the unit is not to be used for a long length of time we recommend that you remove the battery. Preferred battery type is Alkaline.
Also fitted is an input for a DC adaptor: the size of the coax connector is 5.5/2.1mm and the centre pin is negative -VE. The voltage rating of the adaptor should be noise free, fully stabilized at 9.6V and capable of supplying 20mA. We recommend the use of the BOSS PSA series adaptors PSA-100/110/220 or 240 depending on your local AC supply voltage as meeting the above criteria and cannot accept any liability for damage caused to this unit by the use of, or to, any other type of AC/DC adaptor.
Dimensions: 171 X 121 X 55 mm.
