Maker: Hudson Electronics
Model: Broadcast 24v
The BC-24V-USA runs internally at 24 volts from a standard 9 volt supply. The increased voltage gives extra headroom and a tighter low end – fantastic if you are looking for a little less saturation and grit, but without losing that unique sound of the Broadcast. The BC-24V-USA comes finished in either oxide-red or turquoise-green and can only be purchased for a limited time through our fine stockists located in the USA.
The Broadcast is a transformer-coupled, discrete Class-A germanium circuit, that takes its inspiration from classic recording consoles of the 1960s. The unique way in which the circuit saturates and colours your signal can be used to produce biting clean boosts, subtly coloured and thickened signals with a frayed-at-the-edge quality or – when pushed – an individual sounding overdrive with a fuzzy, fried texture.
The BC-24V-USA also features a three position gain switch offering MID-LOW-HIGH modes. In LOW mode, the pedal has most headroom and stays nearly clean across its range, whilst retaining colouration from its germanium circuit and transformer – perfect if you use higher output pickups, baritone, bass or keyboards . The MID mode is voiced to sound and behave as the regular Broadcast – still pretty clean but adding more grit and saturation to the mix. In HIGH mode, as with the regular Broadcast, the BC-24V-USA heads into overdrive, distortion and fuzz but with a slightly tighter low end.
LEVEL – Controls the overall volume of the pedal.
GAIN SWITCH – Selects low, medium or high gain mode.
GAIN TRIM – Controls the gain level of the Broadcast. At higher settings the
high-end of the signal is gently rolled off.
LOW CUT – Attenuates the low-end of the Broadcast. Since this control lies
at the front end of the Broadcast’s circuitry, it is interactive with the gain
THIS VERSION OF THE BROADCAST CONTAINS A VOLTAGE BOOSTER TO INCREASE THE VOLTAGE OF THE POWER SUPPLY UNIT FROM 9V UP TO 24V. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RUN THIS PEDAL AT POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGES HIGHER THAN 9.6VDC AS THIS MAY DAMAGE THE PEDAL AND VOID ITS WARRANTY!
DC SOCKET – The Broadcast requires a DC power supply unit (PSU). Please ensure your PSU can supply 9v, a minimum current of 50mA and has a 2.1mm negative centre barrel plug. Any other type may damage your pedal. If you plan on sharing the same PSU with other pedals, we recommend using a PSU with isolated outputs, e.g. Voodoo Lab PP2.
CURRENT DRAW – 50mA maximum
