Notwithstanding the company’s name, the Space Charged was Crazy Tube Circuits‘ first real tube overdrive. It runs with an internal voltage of 40v and comes with a 12AY7 preamp tube inside the pedal, but that can be switched with other tuber models (12AX7, 12AT7, 12AU7, 5751 ) for varied color and character.
The company presented V2 at NAMM 2020, which adds gain and volume boost function to help lead parts stand out. The tone control was updated with a wider range for brighter sounds available and now also includes a tight/fat switch to shape lower frequencies.

Space Charged just got super charged!
Preserving that warm tube tone of V1 we’ve added gain and volume boost function to spice up your solos. The core real-tube overdrive circuit, courtesy of a 12AY7, is exactly the same but as we listened to our customers feedback we updated the tone control with wider range for brighter sounds available and also included a tight / fat switch to shape lower frequencies.
Powered from an external 9V DC power supply (included) with an internal voltage multiplier to make the tube feel comfortable!
