Cornerstone Gladio Double Preamp

399.00

Description:

We have always been fascinated by the sounds of great artists like Robben Ford or Eric Johnson (just to name a few) and it has always been Emilio’s dream at Cornerstone to recreate those sounds in a pedal. To do this, he quickly realized that the key was to be able to offer something similar to the amplifiers they were using. The goal of the project had a name: Dumble. This is why Gladio is not just an overdrive but is also a realistic tube compression preamp capable of driving the sound into saturation while always maintaining a rich touch-sensitive response and realistic compression.
Gladio has two independent channels with totally different voices, which combined together offer an even wider range of sounds. The first channel is capable of providing smooth and creamy sounds (inspired by songs like Robben Ford’s Cannonball Shuffle). It is truly transparent and with a sensitive touch response that helps improve the sound. The controls (gain, tone and volume) are self-explanatory and there is a toggle switch called Comp to choose between two different levels of compression. The 2nd channel is designed to deliver a special hard clipping sound practically inspired by Sonny Landreth’s tone. The controls are all self-explanatory and there is a toggle switch called Jazz/Rock, which should need no introduction. If you want more versatility the Gladio is equipped with a special toggle switch to choose between two different switching modes. “S” which stands for “Single” and “D” which stands for “Double”. In Single mode you can only use one channel at a time, which means that pressing the footswitch of one of the two channels turns off the other (avoiding tap dancing). In Double mode, however, you can stack the two channels for a huge, fat Dumble-style sound.”

Why a preamp?

We have always been fascinated by the sounds of great artists like Robben Ford or Eric Johnson (just to name a few) and it has always been Emilio’s dream at Cornerstone to recreate those sounds in a pedal. To do this, he quickly realized that the key was to be able to offer something similar to the amplifiers they were using. The goal of the project had a name: Dumble. This is why Gladio is not just an overdrive but is also a realistic tube compression preamp capable of driving the sound into saturation while always maintaining a rich touch-sensitive response and realistic compression.

Why have a double one?

It’s about versatility. Gladio has two independent channels with totally different voices, which combined together offer an even wider range of sounds. The first channel is capable of providing smooth and creamy sounds (inspired by songs like Robben Ford’s Cannonball Shuffle). It is truly transparent and with a sensitive touch response that helps improve the sound. The controls (gain, tone and volume) are self-explanatory and there is a toggle switch called Comp to choose between two different levels of compression. The 2nd channel is designed to deliver a special hard clipping sound practically inspired by Sonny Landreth’s tone. The controls are all self-explanatory and there is a toggle switch called Jazz/Rock, which should need no introduction.
