Emerson Custom – Pomeroy

The Emerson Pomeroy is a Boost, Overdrive & Distortion Pedal featuring a 100% Analog Signal Path. Its jammed packed with an immense amount of features that allow the player ultimate control over their tonal palate and shaping needs. The Emerson Pomeroy Features 2 Independent Channels that pair incredibly well with each other. They can be used independently or together.

BOOST [RIGHT SIDE]

  • Up to 24dBs of Clean Boost on Tap.

This is an incredibly responsive boost, that will fit the needs of most every player. Its tonal response is very wide, so it does not favor one frequency range over another making it incredibly versatile, especially paired with the Pomeroy’s Active EQ on the OD/Distortion Side of the pedal.

LED Display & Level Control

  • Displays the dB Boost Level set by the Level Knob. – High/Low Toggle

Allows the player to choose from a maximum db output on the Boost 0 – 12dBs (Low – Toggle Switch Down) , or 12 – 24dBs (High – Toggle Switch Up).

“INSERT” aka Effects Loop (REAR PANEL)

Plug in an insert cable into the “Insert” jack and you’ll be able to run any effect or combination of effects in between the Overdrive and before the Pomeroy’s Boost.
