The “clean boost” type effects pedal is often adopted as a means of boosting your guitar’s signal without adding any pollution to the sound output. The Orange Two Stroke Boost EQ Effects Pedal is Orange’s “clean boost” adaptation with a large degree of flexibility about it. The Two Stroke pedal can open up a world of different sonic dimensions, whether you’re looking to create completely brand new sounds, or give your solos more magnitude. With a sturdy, compact chassis, this is a must-have for your rig.
12dB CLEAN BOOST
The Orange Two Stroke pedal is equipped with an accommodating Oil control dial for you to adjust the level of clean boost. A twist of the Oil knob allows you to alter the level of clean boost by up to 12dB and it remains entirely clean due to the internal charge pump circuitry. However, using the Oil button also gives you wider control over the pedal’s EQ and tonal range. Unlike other “clean boost” pedals, by setting Oil to zero on the Two Stroke you will establish an incredibly clean-sounding Unity gain, cutting out any unwanted noise or feedback which is often heard through the use of similar pedals.
ACTIVE DUAL-PARAMETRIC EQ
There is a myriad of benefits in having a parametric EQ instead of a graphic equaliser, and one of the most obvious is that it allows you to have consistent, limitless control over your tone. As such, Orange have included two independent parametric bands on the Two Stroke pedal by means of the Hi and Lo controls. Both bands enjoy a well-calibrated Q curve equipped with up to 18dB of either cut or boost which generates a vast array of wonderful tones. Hi offers between 850Hz – 8.2kHz while Lo offers 120Hz – 1.2kHz for a dynamic response.
By engaging the Two Stroke pedal as you play, you are welcomed with the opportunity to completely remodel the sound of your guitar’s pickups. From the bright, crisp tones of single coil pickups to chiming or heavy humbuckers, the Two Stroke can cover a huge spectrum of sounds.
Orange pedals possess an internal charge pump circuit which provides you with a lot of extra headroom thanks to its capacity to double the operating voltage to 18V. This does not cause any unwanted “humming” noise, in fact, quite the contrary, as it ensures that the circuit remains quiet and the sound output is clean and clear. To power the Two Stroke pedal you can either use a 9V battery, or a 9 to 12V DC adapter if you demand a higher output.
The Orange Two Stroke pedal is supplied with a high quality Buffered Bypass switch. Unlike a true bypass switch, having an excellent buffer is what makes the tone and signal pure. You will feel no fear when you engage the Two Stroke pedal via the Bypass footswitch. Without a doubt, the Orange Two Stroke Boost EQ is a phenomenal effects pedal that will become a significant part of your rig.
