Hudson Electronics Dual BroadcasterHudson Electronics Dual Broadcaster

Footswitchable gain modes and separate level controls finished in battleship grey and with dark red Marconi style knobs.

We have made the gain mode (Low or High) selectable via the right hand footswitch (The green LED indicates when the pedal is in High gain mode). Each mode its own Level control and in addition, the pedal has two internal trimmers that allow you to fine tune the amount of gain each mode has.

The Broadcast is a transformer coupled, discret Class-A germanium pre-amplifier based on the classic broadcast consoles of the 1960s. In the low-gain setting, the Broadcast can cover everything from sparkling clean boost through to transparent overdrive, all with a healthy dose of volume available to push your amp.

The Broadcast features a specially selected Trid steel-core transformer and a NOS germanium transistor. Advancing the gain on the Broadcast starts to saturate the transformer and the pedals discrete circuity, giving rise to a gentle and dynamic compression couple with subtle thickening of the midrange.

With the gain switch in the high setting and the trim control wound up, the Broadcast starts to deliver heavier distorted sounds with a warm and fuzzy edge to them. The Broadcast covers a wide range of driven and distorted tones whilst remaining dynamic, responding well to pick attack and the subtle nuances of every player.
