The Overdrive Circuits

The Lamb has three different circuits which offer different levels of compression and clarity. By default the Lamb loads up with quad symmetrical silicone diodes which offers the least amount of compression for maximum clarity and "tube" like breakup. Then we offer symmetrical clipping with dual silicone diodes, this offers a slightly more compressed sound creating a more complex tone with rich overtones and saturation. The last option removes the clipping diodes from the bottom half of the sign wave which creates asymmetrical clipping on the top half of the sign wave. This option has much more headroom than the other two and is great for running a low gain / high volume type of overdrive to really push your amp into natural saturation.
