ABOUT
The Harp Attack is designed to provide true power tube distortion in a pedal. This pedal is not your typical tube preamp that uses a triode; this pedal uses a subminiature beam power tube, which is the same type tube as a 6V6 or a 6L6 to provide the tone of an overdriven tube amp. It produces a fat punchy tone that can be set with the exact amount of overdrive desired. You can certainly tell there is a tube inside of this pedal. The pedal is designed with a high-impedance input buffer providing 10M ohms of resistance to get the best tone from your crystal, CM, or other high-impedance microphones. The pedal features a DRIVE control to set the amount of power tube saturation desired, an active tone control with a 20dB range that is tuned for harp frequencies, and an output VOLUME control to set the output level. The output of the pedal is also buffered with an FET amp. 

The Harp Attack fills several needs of harp players. For instance, by providing true power tube overdrive distortion in a pedal, it allows you to plug straight into a PA and get a fat overdriven Bassman-like sound or dirty-up an amp that is otherwise too clean. The Harp Attack gives an excellent tube sound to a solid state amp, and it makes a great, easy to bring-along, back-up harp amp. The pedal does not produce massive distortion, but a smooth overdriven tone. Put it in your harp case and take it to jams or use it in-line with other pedals to develop your own signature tone. I recommend that you install this pedal last in-line with other pedals, but this is only a recommendation. This pedal is also becoming popular for taking on tour in Europe. Subminiature tubes are microphonic by nature, and there can be a microphonic tone when the pedal is hit or when the bypass switch is clicked, but the tone is low in volume and goes away quickly. It is recommended to not kick the pedal in and out of bypass during a number. This is a minor issue and does not cause a problem for our customers. 

SETTINGS
The settings are very basic. For a clean tone, turn the DRIVE counterclockwise and turn clockwise as you desire more distortion. Increasing the DRIVE also increases volume, so you will need to turn the VOLUME control down as the DRIVE control is turned up to prevent feedback. It is really simple: increase DRIVE and decrease VOLUME or decrease DRIVE and increase VOLUME. The TONE is an active control that amplifies the frequency range that you select. 

POWER
The Harp Attack operates with two 9 volt batteries or one 18V DC power adapter. The DC adapter requirements are a regulated 18V DC with a minimum 200mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center. The battery is switched OFF when an external power supply is used, and the "IN" jack acts as the pedal ON/OFF switch. Battery life is estimated at 15 hours of playing time. Lone Wolf offers power adapters for US and EURO customers and is sold separately.
