【Re-builded for NEW GENERATION】

The birth of a new generation of effects pedals.

Derivative model of the popular Vivie Professional series “ATHENA” and “MINERVA”.

Unpriced (modified Marshall) distortion [ATHENA scion] and overdrive [MINERVA scion].

The concept of each is similar to the current product, but the sound has been greatly renewed.

The amp matching switch has been changed to 3WAY specifications, and the newly added neutral mode has a sound that can be handled like a normal distortion pedal regardless of the amp.

With the addition of Neutral, the JC / MS mode is completely specialized for matching to a specific amp, and outputs a surprisingly optimized sound to each amp.

In addition, the bypass method has been changed to improve switching noise to near zero levels.

MINERVA scion
Tube-Analyzed OverDrive
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price :: JPY 32,780 (tax included)
Scheduled release date: 2022/2/18 (Friday)

An overdrive pedal that faithfully reproduces the drive sound of a modified Marshall amplifier.

■ Natural and unpleasant drive sound
An unpleasant drive sound featuring middle saturation and mellow overtones.
It has a wide gain range from crunch to light distortion, and can be used in various situations without losing balance at any gain position.

■ Evolved Amp-Matching switch
The Amp Matching switch can switch between two modes optimized for the studio permanent amplifier JC-120 and JCM900, 2000, in addition to the Neutral mode that can be used all-round like a normal distortion pedal.
By performing special tuning according to the characteristics that differ greatly for each guitar amplifier, a unique drive pedal that can produce the ideal drive sound regardless of the amplifier was born.

■ TUBE control to adjust the texture of rich middle
It can give a sense of saturation and luster to the middle, which is reminiscent of a vacuum tube.
If you set it low, you will get a clean sound with no habit, and it is an easy-to-use control that does not lose balance at any position from 0 to full.

ATHENA scion
Tube-Analyzed Distortion
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price: JPY 32,780 (tax included)
Scheduled release date: 2022/2/18 (Friday)

A distortion pedal that faithfully reproduces the high gain sound of a modified Marshall amplifier.

■ Powerful distortion sound
This distortion sound is characterized by its rich overtones and powerful unpleasant distortion at the low end.
The gain is set high, and even a single unit without a booster can handle a fairly high gain sound.

Evolved Amp-Matching switch
The Amp Matching switch can switch between two modes optimized for the studio permanent amplifier JC-120 and JCM900, 2000, in addition to the Neutral mode that can be used all-round like a normal distortion pedal.
By performing special tuning according to the characteristics that differ greatly from guitar amp to amp, we have created a unique distortion pedal that can create the ideal drive sound regardless of the amp.

■ Tube Adjust control
Hi can boost / cut high frequencies, especially juicy overtones, and Lo can boost / cut bass with a sense of sound pressure.
Compared to the normal 2-Band equalizer control, you can adjust the texture without disturbing the overall balance.
The Amp-Matching switch eliminates the need for major corrections to match the amp, so this control was possible.
