Heather Brown Electronicals is a new pedal builder founded by Heather Brown, a pupil of Robert Keeley and Mike Matthews. The Blessed Mother is the company’s first pedal, a light gain/transparent overdrive with boost featuring a combination of germanium and silicon diodes.
On top of the expected Volume/Drive/Treble/Bass knobs, the Immaculator knob will let you set the desired amount of transparency – a clever and rather original feature: “This lets you preserve or purify the sound’s original grit to your liking.”
The builder has just announced a V2 with increased output and headroom and slightly more aggressive tone controls.
Check out the video by Reverb.com and find more info about the pedal at the bottom of this post.
The Blessed Mother™ V2 births a classic OD sound with power from the Most High. Her supernatural combination of germanium and silicon diodes generates a uniquely raw, yet velvety tone. She features an adjustable transparency function: The Immaculator. This lets you preserve or purify the sound’s original grit to your liking.
She plays well with others, is true bypass, and has a powerful treble and bass control range. Makes a splendid first stage OD or clean boost. Takes 9v or 18v DC. And yes, halo stays lit while heart lights up when pedal is engaged. …Cuz God’s mom deserves it.
