Manufacturer's ID: Architect v3

The Architect v3 is our unique take on the klon circuit. We’ve added a active 3 band eq to sculpt the tone of the overdrive. 3 clipping options ,which is like different flavors of gain, to pair perfectly with any guitar or amp combination. 2 independant full boost circuits to choose from for your boost channel and all in a single footprint pedal.

Create layered, clean boosts to dynamically push your amp with powerful EQ dialing, or crank the gain and shake the very earth. There is always more to discover and build on with the Architect.



The Architect V3 now has a independant true bypass boost control! Choose between a Silicon or Mosfet boost to perfectly cater to your needs and find which one you like the best!


The EQ in the Architect V3 gives you active control over the Treble, Mids and Lows. Actively boost or cut these frequencies to dynamically shape your guitars tone.


You have the option between 3 different clipping options to give you 3 different colors of gain which helps you dial in the Architect to work great with any guitar or amp combination you are using.
Silicon - Very tight and crunchy
Diode Lift - Only the slight natural clipping great for pushing a dirty amp
Germanium - Compressed and tight
