The Providence Stampede SDT-1 is a one of the most sought after Distortion pedals around, with this being one of the original, Japanese made big enclosure models that have always been fairly hard to find. The Stampede is a fat, full on Distortion that has an incredibly powerful sound. No transparency here, just full on dirt with plenty of low end. The Stampede features a simple control layout, with an additional Boost switch for when you need that extra gain push. The EQ can by bypassed for a more direct sound. This pedal was used extensively by Kurt Ballou of the band Converge, it is perfect for a range of high gain sounds and is destined to only get harder and harder to find outside of Japan.
Condition / Originality:
This pedal is in excellent condition. It runs at the original Japanese voltage, with the plug hard wired to the pedal, although a UK power converter is included with the sale.
