The Supercharger G.T.O. has three gain controls—Gain, Tone and Output. With the Gain set low and the Output cranked up, the Supercharger G.T.O. acts as a line booster to cleanly overdrive the input of your amp. Dialing up the Gain and lowering the Output reveals the sonic legacy of the Supercharger G.T.O. as it creates the tasteful crunch, massive sustain and full, rich tone—the “Soldano Sound” for which our amplifiers are known.
The Supercharger G.T.O. gets its tone from two 12AX7 tubes, which operate at the same voltage as in an amplifier, achieving that real tube sound. A relay switch provides a true, hardware bypass, so the sound isn’t colored when it’s switched out. Just like all Soldano products, the Supercharger G.T.O. is hand-built in our custom shop in Seattle, Washington, USA.
If you’re looking for true high-performance in an overdrive pedal, ignore the rest and go for the best; The Soldano Supercharger G.T.O.!
Please note that the only version of the Supercharger G.T.O. available at this time is for 120 volt (North American) operation. The Supercharger G.T.O. uses a specific “wall wart” type power supply and we have not yet been able to source suitable “export” versions of this power supply for 220 – 240 volt or 100 volt use. For these applications, a small step-down (for 220 – 240 volt use) or step-up (for 100 volt use) transformer – sometimes called a “travel transformer” or “AC adapter” – with a rating of 25 volt-amps (VA) or greater will have to be used to provide the necessary 120 volts required by the Supercharger’s power supply.
