Lauren Audio Spitfire Distortion-Overdrive



The SPITFIRE is a multi-clipping overdrive/distortion that is equipped with 6 discrete clipping stages. From clean overdrive to heavy clipping, each of the 6 stages has a unique tone and distortion characteristic.

Use the selector switch to choose between Clean, Smooth, Germanium, Warm, Dynamic, and Heavy-Mid. Each stage was picked to make the SPITFIRE diverse and useful in many settings.

The SPITFIRE is DIY friendly with 2 clipping stages and a filter built on sockets, making the components affecting your tone easily replaceable. This allows the operator to have a truly unique unit, and provides for future retrofit.

The SPITFIRE is composed of high grade components for reliability and tonal quality. Some components used: Dale Mil-Spec Resistors, Neutrik Jacks, Vishay Transitors, WIMA Capacitors, Nichicon Capacitors, Alpha Pots, Thomson Diodes, Motorola Diodes, and Cree LED's.
