Features an array of tones and replaceable distortion circuits.
The Mateus Asato Signature Pedal, the ASABI, is a distortion/overdrive pedal that contains a versatile array of tones and is the world's first pedal to feature replaceable distortion circuits.
The name ASABI, which means, "of unusual birth" was chosen by Mateus because it speaks to the unique nature of this pedal, as well as his own family heritage. Keep reading below to learn more about how the ASABI can bring your tone to life in new and creative ways.
To keep things interesting on your pedalboard, we developed the technology to create replaceable distortion modules so you can swap the distortion circuit in the ASABI without having to buy a completely new pedal.Because we all like to try out new pedals, these affordable modules allow you to buy the pedal once and update it with new modules all the time.
The MODERN HIGH GAIN module that ships with the ASABI is based on the venerable Marshall JCM800 and delivers true Marshall "Amp In a Box Distortion" at any volume. Coupled with an active EQ, 4x clipping options, and our innovative Gain Cycle feature, the MODERN HIGH GAIN module gives you a plethora of tones ranging from classic rock to crushing heavy metal.
The LARGE MOUSE module, which can be purchased separately, is based on the legendary ProCo Rat and delivers all the snarl and spit of the original with features you've never seen before. Coupled with an active EQ, 4x clipping options, and our innovative Gain Cycle feature, you've never heard a Rat like this before. To make the LARGE MOUSE even more faithful to the original, we procured the mythical LM308 chip that is used in the most sought after vintage units.
To push the distortion even further into clipping, and to cut through the mix perfectly on its own, the overdrive side of the ASABI features an incredibly touch sensitive overdrive circuit. Designed for maximum transparency, the overdrive on the ASABI is completely flat in its frequency response with no mid hump or unnatural artifacts. The ASABI overdrive is your tone, perfectly pushed.
Just like the distortion side, the overdrive circuit in the ASABI features 4x clipping options to perfectly dial in your overdriven tones.
