Tone connoisseurs know how powerful the combination of a drive followed (or preceded) by a graphic EQ is, and Chinese builder Caline had the good idea of offering a dual pedal that hosts both circuits in a single case: the Easy Driver Distortion EQ.
This is a Mesa-style distortion with two Gain and a level knob, followed by a six-band graphic EQ featuring also a level fader.
The EQ bands clock in at 100, 200, 800, 1,600 and 3,200 kHz, which represents a useful selection of frequencies from low to mids, which define the electric guitar’s character.
The two Gain knobs operate in a way that’s not your usual, distorting different frequencies: Gain1 increases the distortion on the high end frequencies, while Gain2 controls the amount of bass distortion.
Here’s the video of the Caline Easy Driver
The Left side: EQ side: Caline CP-71 6 Band EQ covers all the essential guitar frequencies.
Each band delivers a range of ±18dB to help you find your favorite tone. The LEVEL knob controls the overall volume. The frequency bands: 100Hz, 200Hz, 400Hz, 800Hz, 1.6kHz and 3.2kHz.
The right side Distortion: A great sounding distortion pedal which replicates that Mark 4 tone. The two gain controls control the high and low levels of distortion. You can also get a larger range of tones if you have a way to manipulate the mids (such as on your amp or EQ pedal). The pedal is durably constructed with its metal enclosure, is True Bypass design, and works off either a 9v battery or power supply. Note – if you’re after that real Mark 4 sound this pedal should be used with a tube amp.
Gain1″ knob: use to increases treble distortion,and adjust to the former level of distortion.
•”Gain2″ knob:controls the amount of bass distortion, and adjust to the saturation level of distortion.
