Not Just Another Overdrive
Whether you're looking for a pre-amp, low/mid-gain drive, or a screaming cocked wah sound, this pedal can deliver the goods.
Featuring a 3-band EQ, with a fully parametric Mid-EQ and a separate On/Off-Footswitch, a Pre/Post-Gain position switch, and even a socket for external Expression pedals, the KMA Logan delivers superb tone and incredible levels of flexibility.
In addition to this, the Logan sports up to 25 dB of headroom, which allows you to use it as a versatile Preamp - in other words, if you'd prefer not to use an amp and go straight through a cab-sim, you can do it with this!
Despite all of that, the true stand-out feature in the KMA Logan's arsenal is its active 3-band EQ.
This EQ features Bass and Treble controls that can cut or boost each frequency range by up to 15 dB, allowing you to beef up those thin-sounding single coils, or add some chime to your humbuckers.
In addition to this, the tonal flexibility is pushed further by the fully parametric Mid-EQ section. This section's MID control allows you to set your preferred mid frequency between 100 Hz to 2.5 kHz, whilst the CUT/BOOST control allows you to alter this frequency by up to 12 dB.
Not only that, but the Logan sports a dedicated footswitch that allows you to activate/deactivate the Mid-EQ, along with a position-switch for placing the EQ PRE or POST the Gain stage.
Thanks to the inclusion of an EXP socket, you can connect any regular expression-pedal and make instant tone-changes on the fly.
If you'd like to add anything from fast and quacky wah-like sounds to slow and enveloping filter sweeps, an expression pedal in this socket allows you to do it.
Top Notch Construction
As with most KMA effects pedals, the Logan is crafted using only the finest components, all housed in a rugged, road-ready chassis that'll fit onto most pedalboards with ease.
In addition to this, if you want to fine tune your sound even more, the hole on the base-plate will give you direct access to an internal trim-pot, which allows you to alter the Q of the Mid-EQ. Turn this pot counter-clockwise for a wider bandwidth, or clockwise for some truly resonant tones.
If you remove the base plate completely, there's a second trim-pot that will let you blend your clean signal with the overdrive sound, making this an all-in-one overdrive solution capable of handling bass, drums, synths, vocals, and much more in addition to guitar!
