"Pete Cornish's client list is a veritable who's who of professional guitarists, including Pink Floyd, Muse, Paul McCartney and The Police. Trained by the MOD, Cornish's pedalboards and switching systems are serious works of art designed to simply be the most reliable and electrically transparent available." - MusicRadar.com

This is a used Pete Cornish pedal housing two of his more popular pedals, the SS-3 and the G-2. Here's more about both circuits from the Cornish website:

PETE CORNISH SS-3™

The PETE CORNISH SS-3™ is great for crunchy rhythm and a nice  thick bluesy lead; the sound is very much like an overdriven vintage valve amp. The SS-3 is currently being used by Noel Gallagher of Oasis, and is also a firm favorite of David Gilmour of Pink Floyd and Lou Reed. It has the best bottom end retention ever heard in an effect, whilst the mid-range is sweet and very transparent. The SS-3™ retains all the tonal nuances of your guitar and will make it come alive. It is subtle and yet capable of amazing power and sustain. Using the SS-3™ with a clean amp it is possible to progress from subtle overdriven amp sounds, through rhythmic crunch, up to a blues' lead. The tonal characteristics and dynamics of the guitar are maintained even when using this pedal at its maximum gain.

The input to this unique device is our universally acclaimed High Impedance, Unity Gain, Class A, Buffer Preamp with it's superior RFI rejecting capability (to eliminate Radio Station interference) and Low Impedance Audio output, allowing the use of extended cable runs from the SS-3 in bypass mode. The fixed High Impedance load presented to the Guitar allows the pickups to operate at their optimum, even when several effects units are connected after the SS-3. The Unity Gain Buffer also prevents "Ghost Distortion" being audible in Bypass Mode. Our effects get the most benefit from being fed into a clean, full frequency response amplifier and I recommend that when you receive your pedal you connect it up without anything else in line, just Guitar/Pedal/Amp, and discover the way the controls interact, both with themselves and the guitar/amp controls. Adding the rest of your effects, you may find that you need to make slight adjustments to these to compliment the constant signal provided by the SS-3.

The LO-CUT control provides an attenuation of -20dB at 60 Hz when set fully Counter Clockwise. Set fully Clockwise the lo-cut control returns the frequency response to that of the original SS-2™.

The HI-CUT facility on the SS-3™ has been designed to provide an attenuation of -14dB at 6KHz when set fully Counter Clockwise. Set fully Clockwise it provides a +6dB Boost to the Harmonic Content of the signal. Settings of the HI-CUT andLO-CUT in-between CW and CCW will provide varying amounts of boost and attenuation: experiment to find your optimum settings.

FEATURES

  • High Impedance RFI rejecting input and bypass buffer.
  • Each unit is hand built, wired and tested by Pete and Lynda Cornish.
  • Housed in a Rugged Die-cast box with ‘Chicken-Head’ pointer knobs.
  • Heavy Duty all-metal footswitch with Hi-Brite, low power consumption LED.

PETE CORNISH G-2™

The PETE CORNISH G-2™ has been hailed as the most original sounding distortion unit available to guitarists in the Rock Arena. It features a four stage overdriven discrete transistor Class A circuit with additional Germanium components that generate much warmer sounding harmonics than anything else on the market. Within the huge tone generated by this unit, the original guitar sound and dynamics are present creating a much more musical effect than any other distortion pedal.

The G-2™ gives a higher level of overdrive for that classic cranked up Marshall sound found on most British rock records of the 70s (Led Zeppelin, Free, Bad Company etc.). The G-2™ with its warm Germanium qualities and higher gain starts at around the rhythmic crunch stage of the SS-3™ and continues through in controllable degrees to a rounded but dynamic lead.

The input to this unique device is our universally acclaimed High Impedance, Unity Gain, Class A, Buffer Preamp with it's superior RFI rejecting capability (to eliminate Radio Station interference) and Low Impedance output, allowing the use of extended cable runs from the G-2™ in bypass mode. The fixed High Impedance load presented to the Guitar allows the pickups to operate at their optimum, even when several effects units are connected after the G-2™. The Unity Gain Buffer also prevents "Ghost Distortion" being audible in Bypass Mode. This effect unit gets the most benefit from being fed into a clean, full frequency response amplifier and I recommend that when you receive your pedal you connect it up without anything else in line, just Guitar/Pedal/Amp, and discover the way the controls interact, both with themselves and the guitar/amp controls. Then adding the rest of your effects, you may find that you need to make slight adjustments to these as they are now being fed with a constant signal when the G-2™ is in Bypass Mode.
