The Fredric Effects Accomplished Badger is an original two stage boost, with an opamp buffer/boost driving a Germanium transistor gain stage. The Germanium transistors used are individually selected vintage new-old-stock components, tested for optimal gain and low leakage. Because of the nature of these two gain stages, the Accomplished Badger can be used as a sparkly clean boost, to just push an amp to breakup, or for a grittier saturated sound like a torn speaker or an overloaded recording desk tone. More versatile than straight clean boosts, and the sort of effect you may not want to turn off, the Accomplished Badger is a very useful pedal to have around.
Fredric Effects says that these transistors are “individually selected vintage new-old-stock components, tested for optimal gain and low leakage”. Nice.
Having two gain stages means our Badger friend can be used as a clean boost, or it can provide a more saturated, torn speaker-esque sound, as demonstrated in the demo below.
