The Elements is not just a dual-channel overdrive/distortion with a wide gain range and a full 3 band equalizer. Whatever type of gain you are after, you will find it in the Elements. Its not just a simple OD with “gain” and “volume” knobs and that’s it…the Doctor has added toggle switch options for clipping modes, bass cut frequencies, and midrange frequencies, which completely rip new holes over and over! Whether you’re looking for high gain metal distortion or a clean equalizer (it acts as a 3 band EQ when gain knobs are at zero), The Elements can fulfill a role on any pedalboard. Like all Dr. Scientist pedals, the Elements excels with guitar, bass, synths, and many other instruments.
