BROWN SUGAR

MARK L MLC Brown Sugar dynamic overdrive equipped in four-position clipping mod for different harmonic sound tuning and with audiophile Class A preamplifier – OPA2134 at drive stage, is great for crunchy rhythm and a nice thick bluesy lead. The sound is very much like an overdriven vintage valve amp.

FEATURES

QUALITY COMPONENTS

Include highest-quality hi-fi audio components.

ALUMINUM CHASSIS

Everything is built inside a sturdy powder coated lightw aluminum chassis with practical assembly holes .

ANALOG SIGNAL

100% analog signal line, creating a warm and rich tone.

input buffer

The problems with the mismatch of the impedance in the electrical circuit between the pickup and the subsequent equipment in our effects have been completely eliminated, thanks to the use of our Class A Pre-amplifier. Even if the effect is in the OFF position, the input impedance is identical to a high quality tube amplifier.

SPECS

MARK L MLC Brown Sugar dynamic overdrive equipped in four-position clipping mod for different harmonic sound tuning and with audiophile Class A preamplifier – OPA2134 at drive stage, is great for crunchy rhythm and a nice thick bluesy lead. The sound is very much like an overdriven vintage valve amp.

Input of this device is the universally acclaimed High Impedance, Unity Gain, Class A, Buffer Preamp with it’s superior RFI rejecting capability (to eliminate Radio Station interference) and Low Impedance Audio output, allowing the use of extended cable runs from Brown Sugar pedal in bypass mode.

The problems with the mismatch of the impedance in the electrical circuit between the pickup and the subsequent equipment in this OVERDRIVE, has been completely eliminated, thanks to the use of our Class A Pre-amplifier. Even if the effect is in the OFF position, the input impedance is identical to a high quality tube amplifier.

CHASSIS MATERIAL Powder coated aluminum

Battery operation:
MLC Brown Sugar operates on a 9V battery, to replace the battery 8 screws must be
removed from the underside of the device to completely remove the plate.

External Power supply:
MLC effects are also fed externally, through a stabilized direct current 9VDC, thanks to which no battery supply may be needed and equipped with an industry standard 2,1x 5,5mm power supply input. To ensure the best, most stable and deprived of any background hum power supply, we suggest using MLC FX POWER BOX.

EXPLORE THE RANGE

VANILLA SKY

MLC Vanilla Sky Overdrive - the idea behind this pedal, was to create an effect which would retain its dynamics and allow the guitar’s individual tone to shine through even at the highest GAIN settings.

BROWN SUGAR

MLC Brown Sugar - dynamic overdrive equipped in four-position clipping mod for different harmonic sound tuning and with audiophile OPAMP - OPA2134 at drive stage, is great for crunchy rhythm and a nice thick bluesy lead.

ANIMAL

MLC Animal - classical tube driver, inspired by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. The first version was build for Maciej Meller of RIVERSIDE special for WASTELAND TOUR 2018 / 2019. Booster/overdrive pedal with an IC and vacuum tube driven preamp circuit inside.

ELEVATION

MLC Elevation FUZZ - 4 famous fuzzes in one box, inspired by The Edge of U2. You'll find all kinds of different variations in the basic original circuit, from PNP Germanium to NPN Silicon, and a countless number of fuzz pedals that are based on it.

JAZZY DRIVE

MLC Jazzy Drive - an overdrive built on the platform of the vintage overdrive, but the modifications give it a new, individual character. Thanks to incorporating and OPA BURR BROWN circuit as well as polypropylene capacitors we reached a perfect ‘tube tone’.
