What Electro Harmonix say....
Classic '60s Germanium transistor overdrive and more. In addition to a Gain control, the Electro-Harmonix Germanium OD allows the user to control Bias for attack and the circuit Volts for that sweet spot found when a battery's voltage dips. Dial up that slightly torn speaker sound OR dial in total Germanium "Satisfaction."
GAIN CONTROL - Adjusts the amount of input signal that is fed to the GERMANIUM OD. The more the knob is rotated the harder the Germanium transistor and drive components are hit.
BIAS CONTROL - Adjusts the current gain that is sent to the Germanium transistor. It works together with the voltage control to attain the over all tone. The bias control works specifically with the Germanium transistor.
VOLTS CONTROL - Allows the user to control the amount of voltage that is applied to the GERMANIUM OD. When the knob is set at full, 9volts is applied. When set at minimum 3 volts of current is applied By limiting the volts applied to the pedal a number of interesting saturations can be set up for variations in tone.
STATUS LED - When the LED is lit; the GERMANIUM OD effect is active. When the LED is off, the Germanium OD is in True Bypass Mode. The footswitch engages/disengages the effect.
INPUT Jack - Connect your instrument to the input jack. The input impedance presented at the input jack is high.
OUTPUT Jack - Connect this jack to your amplifier. This is the GERMANIUM OD output. This jack is connected directly to the Input Jack.
Footswitch -True Bypass on and off.

Our chosen couriers are currently operating as normal and all orders should be delivered on time. DPD are also now operating a "contact-free" service as a standard process and customers will not be asked to sign handheld units.
Order before 2pm, Monday to Friday, for same-day dispatch of in-stock orders. Very heavy items such as pianos may take longer to deliver. In-stock orders placed over the weekend will be dispatched on Monday. Estimated delivery times for out of stock items are to be used as a guide only, these items may take longer than estimated to arrive. While we try our best to ensure rapid delivery of your order, delays may occur which are outside our control, and delivery of large or bulky items, or to remote or non-mainland addresses may take longer than estimated.
Most UK deliveries are shipped by our trusted courier, DPD. You'll receive an email with a delivery day, tracking and a one hour estimated delivery window on the morning of delivery. While we can't specify the time of the delivery, if it's not convenient, you can arrange directly with DPD for an alternative delivery date or request the parcel be left with a neighbour.
For heavier items, we usually ship UK deliveries by TNT. You will receive an email with tracking details when we ship your order.
Delivery to mainland UK addresses is free on all orders over £99. Delivery charges are based on the size and weight of your order and, in some cases, your location. A standard next working day carriage charge for UK mainland addresses is shown on the shopping basket page, but you can change delivery service later in the checkout.
We use a few different delivery couriers, depending on the items being sent, your location, and the delivery service you've chosen:
Most orders will need to be signed for and we advise you make sure to check your parcel/s for any damage before signing. If no-one is available at your address, a card will be left so you can arrange a re-delivery directly with the courier. Redirection of an order after it's been dispatched may incur an extra charge from the courier.
Delivery charges displayed apply to most UK mainland addresses. Deliveries to Northern Ireland, UK non-mainland, and European addresses will cost more, and carriage charges will be shown at the checkout before you place your order. Free delivery offers may not apply to some remote/Scottish Highlands addresses.
There are currently delays for all returns processing due to extra safety procedures. Thanks for your patience during this difficult time.
