The Archer Select is truly the most versatile K style overdrive yet. Featuring the ability to switch between 7 diodes ranging from lowest to highest output using the clipping knob and left footswitch players can create endless combinations of K style tone from boosts to stacked drives and beyond

Featuring the diodes of the Archer, iKon, Jeff Mod Archer and 4 additional diodes including LED the Archer Select will provide endless tonal combinations

In addition to the overdrive section, a D.I. Speaker Simulator based on a British 4X12 cabinet is built in to monitor the OD sound via direct or have the option for direct recordings. The ground switch is added only for this section for a silent setup.

The Archer select is a uniquely functioning Boost/Overdrive. Over the years of K style pedals people have
sworn by the influence of the proper NOS germanium clipping diodes in order for this particular design to be
accurate to the original. There is so much speculation on the internet and certainly misleading information by
the original designer. We decided to let your ears be the determining factor and to provide the ability for you
to easily switch between 7 different clipping diode options.

If you simply leave the clipping diode foot switch off it defaults to the stock diodes (OA10’s). With the clipping
dial you can choose between 6 additional clipping diodes. Depending on which diodes you have the selector
knob on you can A/B between the stock diodes and the selected diodes. Diodes range from lowest output to
highest output when turning clockwise. (Very Subtle)

D.I. Speaker Simulator is something we included for those who like to be able to monitor their OD sound via
direct or have the option for direct recordings. The ground switch is solely there for the D.I. incase you have
grounding issues.

IMPORTANT!! - These are “clipping” diodes so in order to hear the difference the pedal has to be clipping or
overdriving. You will not hear a difference if you do not have the gain up. If you crank the gain that is where
you will hear the biggest difference. Keep in mind that most K style users set the gain low so the clipping
diodes will have a subtle influence. There is a certainly a difference but be prepared for it to be very subtle.

PLEASE BE AWARE - If you rotate the Diode selector knob you will hear slight pops. It is best to disengage
via the foot switch before rotating.

DEFAULT DIODES ARE - OA10’S (Our Favorite). This means that when the clipping foot switch is not engaged
these are the diodes you will hear. Once you engage the clipping foot switch you will hear whichever set of diodes
you have selected on the clipping dial.

There is a subtle difference between all of the clipping diodes but they are arranged from the lowest forward voltage
to highest forward voltage. This means between the OA10 diodes vs the Red LED’s there will be the biggest volume

As of production today these are the diodes we have selected, however, since all but the LED’s are NOS germanium
diodes, availability can and will most likely change in the future. For now we have a healthy supply.

Please experiment and remember you only hear clipping diodes when they are clipping so experiment with the gain.

  • Output: Controls overall volume output
  • Gain: Controls the amount of gain
  • DI output and SPK SIM: provides a direct output with speaker simulation for monitoring or recording
  • Clipping switch: engages your selected clipping diode. When off, it defaults to the stock diode
  • Treble: Controls the high end
  • Ground switch: ground lift for DI
  • Clipping: Allows for 6 additional clipping diode options operated by the "clipping" foot switch
  • On/Off: turns the pedal on and off
