Turbo Nonna

NEW VERSION! Same tone, more options! Added an additional Internal switch to control separately the Internal Voltage (i.e. Level/Compression) and Power Out Voltage!

The Turbo Nonna is a versatile and transparent overdrive/distortion pedal. A very amp-like drive with dynamic and silky smooth distortion that will turbo drive your tone. With lots of gain on tap and headroom, the Turbo Nonna can add as much sustain and fatness as you require while maintaining the true voice of your amp and guitar.  In addition to Drive, Turbo, Volume and Tone controls, the Fat switch and 3 voices selector will give you a huge amount of sonic possibilities. The New Turbo Nonna version also features an internal voltage switch that let’s you decide between higher level and dynamic or more dirt and compression.

And that is not all…our Turbo Nonna is a generous one and can power other pedals too. A second internal switch will allow to choose between a protected daisy chain power out and a regulated 12V centre negative.

Description

NEW VERSION! Same tone, more options! Added an additional Internal switch to control separately the Internal Voltage (i.e. Level/Compression) and Power Out Voltage!

Drive with Turbo!

Featuring a carefully voiced multistage drive circuit, Turbo Nonna is capable to deliver a large range of gain. From a boost-like tone enhancer to a heavy, fat, grit or deep sound. The Drive control will add gain just as a preamp gain control would, while the Turbo will add fatness, sustain and extra gain. The combination of these 2 controls alone offers a wide range of sonic combinations. But there is more…much more…

True to your tone

Thanks to multilevel clipping and multistage signal amplification the Turbo Nonna adds to your tone without changing its character. Its circuit has been designed to preserve dynamic and sensitiveness at any level of gain and give you that great feeling of control on your fingers. And yes, it cleans up very well with the guitar volume control! The Tone control is a passive high cut that will adjust to the brightness of your amp and guitar.

Fat Switch

The fat switch adds more punch in the low-mid frequencies, increasing even more the sonic possibilities. You will notice how this increased fatness can serve different proposes at different levels of gain.

3 different Voices

The Voice switch allows you to select 3 different clipping with different level of compression and headroom. The top position delivers an asymmetrical silicon diodes soft clipping, the bottom position selects an original asymmetrical transistors smooth clipping circuit while the centre position offers the highest headroom and the most open sound (use this position for more boost-like settings).

Increased Headroom

Thanks to the internal step-up voltage regulation circuit the Turbo Nonna boosts the input standard power supply to 12V, adding to the already large dynamic and increasing headroom.

Power other pedals: regulated 12V or protected daisy chain

Our Turbo Nonna is a generous Nonna and can power other pedals. This features solves a few very common issues that we all had at least once…ever ran out of power outputs from your pedal power supplier? Ever wished you could ran shorter power cables and have a neater pedalboard? Ever wished to power that pedal, just that pedal or perhaps a few more, with 12V rather than 9V? The power out features is addressing all the above. You can power one or more pedals (with daisy chaining) using a standard centre negative cable out of the power out jack at the top of the pedal. An internal dip switch let’s you choose the output voltage: either a fixed, regulated 12V with a current of up to 400mA or non-regulated daisy chain of the Power Input. The default position out of manufacturing (dip switch to the left) is the latter so the power output will supply the same voltage you are supplying to the Nonna, but with additional protection circuit for added safety.  

More Level/Headroom vs more Compression/Dirt: 2 positions internal switch

Shhh!! It’s a secret…if you like more compressed sounds this could be your favourite “tweak of the week”. Just unscrew the bottom of Turbo Nonna to access a slide switch that allows you to bypass the internal voltage boost and therefore allows you to reduce the headroom (i.e. the level and dynamic of the signal) and achieve higher compression and higher level of dirt.  

If you instead prefer a higher level and more dynamic, the default mode (slide switch to the right) is just for you.

Here is the more technical bit…with the switch on the right the power out will be a regulated 12V as explained above, with the switch on the left instead the power out voltage will be the same as the power in.
