The latest pedal released by Chase Bliss Audio is the Brothers Analog Gainstage. This is a dual overdrive pedal that can cover an insanely wide variety of tonal options. Internally, the Brothers contain two different overdrive, fuzz, and boost circuits one per each channel. These two channels can be operated in series, parallel or independently. The parallel option will allow you to blend the tow drives together creating a completely new sound. The series configuration will send one channel into another allowing you to stack the two overdrives. Both of these configurations open up a whole new world of tone options, unlike most other drive pedals that are out there.

JFET and IC circuits
The Brothers has 2 completely independent channels. These are Labeled A and B. The A and B channel can be run separately or at the same time. Channel A contains a JFET circuit and Channel B is built off of an IC circuit. This will give you two very different drive options that you can mix and match in order to get the perfect drive. Each channel also has a three-way toggle which will allow the player to choose between drive, fuzz, or boost.
The Brothers will also feature the Chase Bliss Audio signature Dipswitches, an all analog signal path, and will be controlled by a digital brain. This means that the pedal will allow you to save and instantly recall presets. It also is midi capable and allows you to recall up to 127 different settings. This is good news because the pedal offers 33 different routing options so you don't have to worry about losing your favorite tones.
