HUNGRY ROBOT [HG+LG] OVERDRIVE
The Hungry Robot [hg+lg] combines the amazing versitility of both low gain and high gain versions of The Hungry Robot. The Hungry Robot [hg+lg] takes the two circuits, replicates them, and combines them into a small footprint dual overdrive.
Now with 12 dipswitches, I dare you to find more versitility in a pedal of this size not to mention with two original circuits.
The internal signal chain sends your input into the high gain side and then cascades that into the low gain circuit. Both channels can be operated independently.
Current Draw: 28 mA
Dimensions: 4.7” x 2.6” x 1.5”
Powering: 9V DC – Negative Center – 2.1mm Barrel

The Hungry Robot is a low-gain overdrive that is designed specifically to give you more of what makes your tone unique. Immediately upon plugging The Hungry Robot in you will experience a rich, full character, touch responsive overdrive that has plenty of warmth and body.
Its three transistor design is its key to its responsiveness. The Hungry Robot responds to your picking dynamics in ways that other OPAMP designs fail to capture. The Hungry Robot does not color your tone and gives you more amp-like breakup.
On the outside, The Hungry Robot is a typical three knob overdrive, but the key to The Hungry Robot’s versatility comes from the six internal dipswitches. Each dipswitch modifies a section of circuitry allowing you to go from crystal clear boost to Supro-inspired drive tones and everything in between.
The Hungry Robot [hg] is an original circuit designed to push the limits of what a high gain overdrive can do. It promises unprecedented tonal quality and versatility that can’t be found in other high gain overdrives. This is not to be confused with its low gain namesake (the original Hungry Robot); this circuit travels far beyond its low-gain amp-like counterpart into the world of high-saturated distorted tones.
The problem that most high gain overdrives face is a flabby, undefined low-end. The tonestack in The Hungry Robot [hg] works to tightens the low end and emphasize the mids and highs. Most of the original Hungry Robot’s success is owed to the unique internal controls. Like the original, The Hungry Robot [hg] has its own set of 6 internal dipswitches that allow you to drastically shape the overall sound of the pedal to fit any rig and playing style.
