It Actually Smells Like Cinnamon!
The team over at Aclam has a great ear for re-producing amp-like tones in a pedal. They’ve done this by following amp circuits and swapping out the Valves/Tubes for FETs which behave in a very similar way but are much smaller. On the Cinnamon drive however the aim wasn’t to replicate a single amp, instead, it’s the sound of an era. The ’60s and ’70s saw the likes of Hendrix, Clapton, and many many more pushing their amps like never before, so by using a mixture of a soft-clipping circuit as the main tone and a hard-clipping circuit in the boost section you can recreate your favourite classic rock tones to an epic degree!
Oh and did we mention, it smells like cinnamon.
