Animals Pedal Drops Dawn Ocean Meditation Booster, Diamond Peak Hybrid Overdrive Leave a comment

Japanese effects manufacturer Animals Pedal has launched the Dawn Ocean Meditation Booster and Diamond Peak Hybrid Overdrive, each designed for the brand by American pedal creators.

Donning design by Wren and Cuff’s Matthew Holl, the Dawn Ocean Meditation Booster is a classic single-knob clean boost stompbox. It beefs up your natural tone sans changing the balance of low, mid, and high frequencies, boosting up to +15 dB, and yielding various retro sounds.

For reference, the Dawn Ocean Meditation Booster is Animals Pedal’s third collaboration with California’s Wren and Cuff, following previous launches Sunday Afternoon is Infinity Bender and Tioga Road Cycling Distortion.

Meanwhile, the Diamond Peak Hybrid Overdrive is the latest partnership between Animals Pedal and Nevada-headquartered Skreddy Pedals. The unit is spec’d from another Skreddy design, the Major Overdrive, but comes with less gain and more headroom. As the press release states:

“This is a versatile drive with a classic, mild, cranked-amp voice that exudes British tube amp tone. Diamond Peak delivers plenty of crunch without getting fuzzy, muddy, or compressed, and is ideal for ultimate hot blues/rock sounds centered around the midrange that sparkle when the amp begins to break up.”

The Dawn Ocean Meditation Booster and Diamond Peak Hybrid Overdrive carry a US street price of $139 and $149, respectively.
