Through the years they have used a veritable ocean liner full of effects and have come to the conclusion that certain effects could be paired for both better sonic combinations and to help preserve that precious pedal board real estate. DVK are not trying to reinvent the wheel, they just want to streamline it a little.
Enter the new DVK Technologies range: a suite of models offering 2-in-1 solutions in reasonably sized cases and featuring useful peripherals such as expression control and circuit order switching. All of their circuits have been (re)designed from the ground up by the illustrious ‘Doc’ (Craig Paine) who has worked for nearly three years driven by the sonic demands of the rarely satisfied Mr Kingman. Although these are their own circuits, they have drawn our concepts from the best and are only too willing to acknowledge this. Oh yeah, thier own Tony Tran provides the fab eye candy and we’ll be featuring different themed cases as time goes by.
DVK have decided to keep the pedals green as well. That means no 9V batteries. For two reasons: firstly because there is so much circuitry jammed into these pedals that they couldn’t possibly fit a battery in there and secondly because they’re rotten little things filling up our landfills and if we can do without them we will. So we have.
Now please try one, enjoy it and make some music with it. That’s all we can ask.
Goldtop Fuzz/Vibe Pedal
THE GOLDTOP is a dual function pedal featuring DVK's take on a classic fuzz and vibe. The circuits can be engaged separately or used together for some great modulated fuzz tones. Additionally, they have provided a toggle switch that lets you change the stacking order of these effects - fuzz before vibe or visa versa. Some people prefer their fuzz before their vibe and others prefer it after so DVK thought they might as well give you the option to use whatever configuration you prefer.
The Mrs Compressor/Boost Pedal
THE MRS is a dual function pedal featuring a compressor and a booster. The Compressor can be used by itself or in combination with the boost. Its circuit is one of our own based on a few legendary compressors that we have admired and found useful in the past. It features a ‘norm/bright’ switch that, when switched to the ‘bright’ side, will give your sound bit more zing or top end. The Booster side will provide up to 25dB of gain (‘Level’ control) with the added bonus of a ‘Gain’ control to dial in a little drive or edge. Another feature of the booster side is the ‘Norm/Fat’ toggle switch, which, when engaged in the ‘Fat’ mode, will give your bottom and low mids a kick in the guts.
Silvertop Overdrive/Vibe Pedal
THE SILVERTOP is a dual function pedal featuring their take on a classic overdrive and vibe. The circuits can be engaged separately or used together for some great modulated drive tones. Additionally, DVK has provided a toggle switch that lets you change the stacking order of these effects - overdrive before vibe or visa versa. Some people prefer their overdrive before their vibe and others prefer it after so DVK has given you the option to use whatever configuration you prefer.
The Hairball Overdrive/Boost Pedal
THE HAIRBALL is a dual function pedal featuring a overdrive and a booster. Angry and aggressive all in one! The Hairball truly takes the concept of Overdrive & Boost as a combination to near insane levels. The drive is quite high in gain with a custom voiced tone circuit. It also cleans up nicely and responds well to your picking style and guitar volume setting. The boost is where things get a little crazy. Massive level increase is possible & you can select Full Range or Treble Boost to suit your taste. The Hairball – dedicated to gagging cats everywhere!
