Those looking for a pedal that encapsulates the essence of traditional Texan music may find what they need in the Texan Twang, a pedal by a company based in Cambridgeshire, UK.
Inspired by a steady aural diet of Steve Ray Vaughan, this combo boost/overdrive pedal is a two-knob, treble booster-inspired device built to interact with your guitar and amp, cleaning up nicely at low guitar output. The right knob is a three-way rotary switch that produces glassy and bite on the Hi setting, tube-like warmth in the Mid setting and punchy growl in the Lo one.
You can hear the Pedal Pawn Texan Twang in the videos below, we added it to our article about the best treble booster-inspired pedals and Rangemaster clones.
