The Savior Machine is what can commonly be called a “Transparent” Overdrive. What this means, simply, is the Savior Machine will let the natural sound of your guitar and amp shine through without fundamentally altering their character. This means the pedal will sound different with different guitars or types of pickups and its primary use is to add low to medium gain overdrive or (at lower gain) clean boost and tonal enhancements. The Savior Machine is extremely sensitive to pick attack, playing style variations, guitar volume changes, and pickup changes. On most settings, soft playing will still come through the pedal with little to no distortion. As a result, GAIN adjustments on the Savior Machine may be better thought of as sensitivity adjustments.

The Savior Machine is also designed to work well after delays and reverbs. Though it works very well for a wide variety of styles, the pedal was originally designed with Indie Rock and Shoegaze musicians in mind and these styles of music often utilize reverb and delays placed in front of distortion or overdriven amplifiers. By utilizing the Savior Machine’s BASS CUT knob, you can retain a great deal of clarity in these situations (and also restore clarity to muddy pickups or preamps that tend to lose clarity with additional gain).
