Up for sale, an Emerson Custom Paramount Drive Mk. 2 in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. Designed to be versatile, the Paramount Mk. 2 delivers a range of classic, vintage-style drive tones perfect for pushing a tube amp into creamy breakup, adding a touch of grit to your sound, or cranking it up and stacking well with other pedals for dynamic punch.
Emerson uses handpicked and hand-matched top-notch componentry for premium tone, including USA-made Switchcraft jacks and a 3PDT true bypass footswitch. The simple, user-friendly controls lend themselves to experimentation and tonal sculpting, with Volume, Gain, and Colour knobs. The Colour knob is exceedingly versatile; instead of rolling off all of the top end, dialing back the Colour knob delivers a bass and midrange-rich sound that remains articulate and never muddies out. Similarly, cranking the dial produces crisp, shimmering sounds that don’t get abrasive and screechy.
This unit is in fantastic shape, with barely a mark on the enclosure. The knobs are original, and the graphics are pristine.
