Browne Amplification carefully extracted the Blue side of our Protein Dual Overdrive and gave it the ability to stand on its own for a solo mission. The Carbon is inspired by a legendary circuit that we obsessively tweaked to address some of the issues we had with the original design.
Many pedals offer different clipping choices, internal dip switches, and trimmers that give you endless options. Browne Amplification found this to be problematic because, for us, it can create option fatigue. The Carbon is designed to be an incredibly versatile pedal without any switches or internal pots to tweak.
The higher you have the gain set, the brighter the Carbon will be. If you happen to be running the gain on the higher side you may find yourself dialing back the tone control. This is normal! The Carbon has massive output potential which will give you the ability to turn the drive way down and use it as a clean boost.
