Both thick and dynamic, the Tsakalis Nerve MkII is a dual high-gain, silicon-based distortion pedal for guitarists with a heavy tone, featuring two matched JFET stages that deliver an American-style distortion.

A toggle switch selects between High and Low gain settings for Channel 1 for in-song dynamic shifts, while a dedicated insert jack (fx loop) for channel 2 opens up unforeseen routing options.

Low, Mid, High and Presence controls allow for deep tone sculpting.
