TWA Totally Wycked Audio Hot Sake Overdrive Distortion Pedal Controls
DRIVE – Controls the amount of gain/drive/distortion. Turn clockwise for more saturation.

A classic Low-Boost/Hi-Boost Tone control lays down Hot Saké’s overall sonic palette, while a dedicated Mids knob allows for precise sculpting of the pedal’s tonal flavor.
The dedicated Low Boost switch with selectable frequency center adds an incredible kick that turns Hot Sake into a Sake Bomb, creating super-thick yet articulate, chest-thumping modern crunch.
Imagine tones ranging from smooth, 808-style drives with no mid-hump to chunky, Muff-like fuzz with dynamics & clarity, and you’ll have an inkling of just what this little black box can do.
Hot Saké’s 180-proof Level control provides an unprecedented degree of boost that can burn through the loudest of bands. Crank it up to elicit scorching harmonic feedback even at room-level amp volumes.
The perfectly-tuned Drive control offers up distinctly amp-like tones, covering a broad spectrum of saturated sounds from slight tube break-up to complete amp break-down.
Incredibly dynamic, rolling back your Guitar’s volume will adjust Hot Saké’s temperature to taste, covering every flavor of dirt from BB King Smoothness to Sonic Youth sludge.
All this muscle is kept tight & quiet by an audiophile-quality TLO72 op-amp that retains note clarity and definition at any control setting.
If other drives have left you thirsting for more, pour yourself a cup of Hot Saké and let the good times Rock & Roll – Kanpei!!!
