Pre-Owned in excellent condition with some velcro on the back. Please note that the box is not included. 

The level, the first of the dials, left to right, is a clean boost and where I found a good baseline for shaping tone. With the remaining two set at 10 o’clock, the emitting sound is a low gain overdrive. In the past I’ve found such a setting on overdrive pedals will mean a more muted tone at lower gain levels, but with the Kanji, the light, gritty output maintains spark and attack. It’s almost like a driven Marshall head – tight and responsive, even at low volume and gain. The main difference being this pedal’s bass response – it’s evenly weighted, giving its tone punch and adding to its warmth. Lead playing screams with soul, and chords are hearty – a highlight that will be difficult to surpass.

 

Upping the drive setting stacks the grit on to your dialled-in settings without muddying the tone. The glass, the pedal’s middle dial dubbed a treble boost, depends greatly on the positioning of the dials either side of it. Generally speaking, rolling off the glass setting will darken tone, while the opposite direction will brighten things up a bit. Though it is labeled a ‘treble’ boost, it encourages clarity over pure treble boost. Meaning, pushed to its peak, it doesn’t overdo the treble EQ to a piercing high range level. Instead, it pushes the highs to poke through a little more, adding a well-rounded bit of attack, allowing for rich harmonics without the aid of drive saturation.

 

The boutique pedal market has seen a surge in the last decade, flooded with so many great takes on staple effects. It’s a great time for pedal enthusiasts, but just because it’s handmade, it doesn’t mean it’s worth the exaggerated price tag. Conversely, the Kanji is legit a grade A boutique pedal. Yes, it’s handmade. Yes, it’s a boutique pedal. But its worth is contained inside that cream box of joy. It’s versatile and in front of a tube amp, the possibilities are aplenty.
